Low attendance closes dining hall for semester

Spring semester usually less busy, says director.

April 9—Gateway Cafeteria, at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, will be closed for dinner for the remainder of the semester due to low attendance rates earlier this semester. Of the 600 to 700 students that Gateway can accommodate, 400 were attending for dinner.

Another dining hall, Hale Aloha, can accommodate about 1,400 students with its large kitchen and seating area. During the past few months, this number has dropped to about 700 or 800 students. The combined count from both Hale Aloha and Gateway can be accommodated in one facility.
