Originally scheduled to reopen about this time after a six-month renovation, central campus' Hub will open in early January. ISU Dining anticipates taking possession of the building the week of Dec. 17 and because of its reliance on student employees, much of the staff training will occur after Jan. 1.

The Hub will feature a full-service Roasterie coffee bar at the north end and a Mediterranean-themed food venue at the south end, both of which are firsts for ISU Dining. Heaping Plato and The Roasterie will open on the first day of class, Monday, Jan. 14. They will have break hours (approximately 9 a.m.-1 p.m.) on Friday, Jan. 11, and an open house the afternoon of Thursday, Jan. 10. More information about the reopening will be shared in early January.
While the 2008 Hub renovation and addition resolved many conditions inherent to a 125-year-old building, crews uncovered a few more this summer. This added time to the project but was necessary, given the Hub's historical significance on campus.
