University Food Service
The University Food Service (UFS) provides food that is acceptable, nutritious, safe, wholesome and reasonably priced to its University clientele of students, faculty and administrative personnel. It is managed by professional dietitians and nutritionists.
Until 1993, the UFS operated six dormitory dining halls and 15 canteens in various academic and administrative buildings. In 1994, through a management decision to privatize food outlets on campus, the outlets of the UFS were awarded to private concessionaires and their supervision was transferred to the Business Concessions Office under the Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Community Affairs. Only three outlets were left to the UFS : its Catering Unit, Bakeshop and the Vinzons Grill.
A fire which started from the electrical wiring at the Vinzons Hall kitchen in December 1997 was luckily put out in time, but it dramatically brought to the attention of the public the hazardous condition of the UFS. The UFS dining hall and kitchen, which have never undergone any major renovation since 1960, had a leaking roof, deteriorating gas pipes and plumbing, and worn-out electrical connections.
Through a generous donation of Senator Ramon Magsaysay Jr., the UFS underwent major renovation of its Vinzons Hall kitchen and dining areas.
