Welcome to Potomac State Dining Services! 

We are here to help make your life on campus a positive experience by providing nutritious meals in a comfortable, attractive environment. PSC Dining Services promotes positive health choices with a focus on diets based on plenty of plant foods and sensible portions. When combined with moderate exercise, eating for better health is part of an overall healthy lifestyle. We also realize the importance of comfort food and offer the most popular selections at both locations. Take a look at what we have to offer.

The Commons - our all-you-care-to-eat option

The Rapids- our ala carte option to-go

Catering Services - on campus for any occasion

Our campus has two styles of dining options available to meet various needs of campus life. Both are located on the first floor of University Place and are easily accessible to resident hall students, commuters, staff and guests. First is The Commons, which offers a wide variety of foods to choose from and the pleasure of eating as much as you want at each meal. Perhaps you prefer to take food to your room, office, or class? Then The Rapids is your choice. Here all food is packaged to-go and is priced individually.
