The expansion of the Muenster University Center increased the building to around 100,000 square feet of student dining, meeting space and staff offices.
The MUC can now accommodate 1,200 students, more than doubling the 450 who could fit before.
The MUC expansion brought in additional dining options including Einstein Bagel Bros., Qdoba Mexican Grill and Chick-fil-A. The Commons was moved from the North Complex and relocated to where the Marketplace used to be.
The Marketplace was moved across the MUC and offers meals purchased through flex or Coyote Cash. The meal portion of meal plans is used to purchase food in the new Commons location, which is buffet style. Flex and Coyote Cash can be used to purchase food at Einstein Bagel Bros., Qdoba Mexican Grill and Chick-fil-A.
The expansion added new seating areas for students, including additional booths and high-top tables and bars. Booths were equipped with outlets for computers and some contain televisions. The new Marketplace area has a 16-panel television usually consisting of multiple feeds.
Construction was completed in the spring of 2014 at the cost of about $10 million.
