One World Café

In partnership with the university, and with the approval of the Capital Planning Board, Campus Dinning and Shops intends to design and build a new dining experience as part of UB’s overall Heart of the Campus (HOTC) initiative. The One World Café is envisioned to create a new and exciting dining environment consistent with the university’s aspirations. Located in the center of campus (Capen and Norton Halls), the dining facility will serve students, faculty, and staff. It is expected to open spring 2020.  Charged with guiding and advising on all phases of the One World Café project, including Request for Qualifications (RFQ) review, architect selection, conceptual design and naming/branding of the facility, a One World Café planning team began their work in May 2017.  Graham Hammill, Vice Provost of Graduate Education and Dean of the Graduate School is leading the planning team. The committee will support project phases including RFQ review, consultant, and review of findings and recommendations.  Study conclusions are expected to be finalized in the 17/18 academic year.
