Rutgers dining halls return to later closing time

Livingston Dining Commons has returned to the 9 p.m. closing time with three other halls to follow.

Oct. 9—Beginning tonight, Livingston Dining Commons will be open until 9 p.m. The other three dining halls will follow suit Oct. 14 onwards, and will remain open for an extra hour.

Joseph Charette, executive director of Dining Services, said the decision to reopen the halls until 9 p.m., was made due to a variety of factors. On Livingston, the dining hall has a line out the door at 8 p.m. almost every night.

In an article in the September 16 issue of the Daily Targum, Charette explained that by cutting one hour from all four dining halls for two semesters, Dining Services would save roughly $150,000.
