In lieu of boxed lunches, conference guests may purchase passes for lunch at UNT dining facilities on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday. The cost of one lunch is $6.25 for any of the UNT dining halls (all-you-can-eat), including a vegetarian option. These pre-purchased lunch passes can be used at Mean Green (vegan) and Kerr Dining Halls, as well as Bruce Hall (closest to the College of Music).

These pre-purchased lunch passes can be used at Kerr Dining hall on Wednesday through Saturday, and at the Mean Green Café in Maple Hall and the Bruceteria in Bruce Hall from Wednesday-Friday.  Please see below for dining hall hours, locations, and links to daily menus.

Bruce Hall

Bruceteria is centrally located on the corner of Chestnut and Avenue C and offers a diverse selection of hot entrées as well as healthy vegan and vegetarian options. Be sure to try the rotisserie chicken or hit up the ever-popular pizza and pasta bar (even our pasta is made from scratch). Looking for a fresh gyro or Mediterranean bowl? Bruce has you covered with the Mediterranean Station. Two fresh salad bars and a dessert bar are also on site. And did we mention that Bruce has some of the most elaborate and fun special dinners on campus, like the annual Hogwarts Christmas Dinner?
