DINING

Wartburg College Dining Services strives to provide customers with great service, quality food, and convenience. Dining is more than just food—our locations offer inviting areas for students, staff, faculty, and guests to gather for meetings, have a meal together, and to relax.

Wartburg College is a residential campus. For this reason, Wartburg offers a variety of dining services that allow students flexibility and choice. Whether it’s eating a full-scale meal in Mensa, picking up a sandwich at the Den, or ordering specialty drinks at the Konditorei and Zesty Orange, dining services offers a variety of foods that are ready whenever you are. Students, both on and off campus, have meal plan options to accommodate their needs. Click the link below for more details.

We accommodate medically-required special dietary needs such as celiac disease, peanut and soy allergies, and diabetes. Visit with our dining staff on your next campus visit.

We are delighted you would like Wartburg College to service your event. We offer serviced events, deliveries, and take out services. Let the proficient hands of Wartburg Catering make your event a success! Events we cater to include weddings, rehearsals, conferences, meetings, birthdays and more! Wartburg Catering will ensure that your event is professionally prepared and seamlessly serviced.

Pre-planning is important for us to make your event a success. We want to customize your event for you! Things we will need to know in order to help you are:

  • Date and time of event.
  • Estimated number of guests
  • General overview of what will happen during the event.
  • Account number (Wartburg) or individual (non-Wartburg) to bill for the event.

If you have any questions about our Catering Services, feel free to call us at (319) 352-8303.

Catering Policies: A guarantee for the event is required by noon three week-days prior to the event. Dining services will prepare and set for 5% or 10 people above the guarantee, whichever is less, and will charge for the guarantee or the number served, whichever is greater. This allows a little leeway in planning. If a guarantee is not received by the designated time, the estimate will become the guarantee. If there is uncertainty in the number of guests attending, please let us know and we will help determine the best way to handle it.

Liquor Service: Wartburg College has a license to serve wine and beer in the Ballrooms and Castle Room. When alcohol is served, food must be provided, including receptions prior to dinner, and wedding dances after dinner. Bars will be closed during dinners and may reopen for a dance (example-weddings). There are no kegs allowed-no exceptions. Alcohol is not allowed at events where there may be a large number of guests under the age of 21, or at events where college students are the target audience. IDs will be checked and we follow all state and local liquor laws.

Special Diets: Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs. We can accommodate special diets, and will do that best if the information is given to us when the guarantee is provided.

Other Policies: If you are hosting an event on campus within the Saemann Student Center or the Waverly-Wartburg Wellness Center, Wartburg Dining Services is the sole food provider. We will custom plan the menu for your group and work with you to select menu options that will best accommodate for your event. Please note that for groups less than 20 people if special menu accommodations are requested, pricing adjustments may be made. Our prices are set with dinner start times prior to 6:30 pm, events serving dinner after that time may be priced differently as adjustments may be needed to accommodate for overtime staff costs. Limitations of food and services are determined by Wartburg Dining. Prices are subject to change and if an event is cancelled or change Wartburg Dining Services reserves the right to charge for food and or labor expended. Please note that our personnel are not permitted to accept gratuities or gifts.

ID Card Sample

Students, faculty, and staff at Wartburg College are issued Wartburg IDs. The ID card is for campus identification and service access. It provides access to buildings, the Wellness Center, board plans, All Campus Spending and the time clock system. The user is responsible for their card.

ID cards are non-transferable and for the sole use of the cardholder. The ID card is the property of Wartburg College. A lost or stolen card should be reported immediately. Lending this card to anyone, or altering it in any way, is a violation of college regulations and may result in disciplinary action. If an ID card is damaged, cracked, worn from use, or stops working there is no charge to replace it. Bring the damaged card to the Dining Office. There is also no charge if a person needs to exchange their card due to a legal name change.

Temporary Card
If your ID card has been lost or stolen, a temporary card can be purchased for $5. Temporary ID cards are valid for a one-week time-period. A temporary card may be used for board meals in Mensa only.

The cost of a replacement card is $20. An old card cannot be reactivated once a new card has been made. If you have already purchased a temporary card, the cost to get a new ID card made will be the $15 difference.

New Card
Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to prevent use. This can be done in the Dining Office or online. The Dining Office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Report your ID lost via the GET website by clicking the “I Lost My Card” tab under “Quick Lines”. You must come into the Dining Office in order to get a temporary or new card.

If you find your ID card before you get a replacement, you may reactivate your card by coming to the Dining Office, or by going onto the GET website and clicking the “I Found My Card” tab under “Quick Lines”.

All Campus Spending (ACS)
All Campus Spending (ACS) is an account that you can put money on in order to make purchases on campus. It functions like a debit card. ACS can be used in all four dining locations, the Mail Center and the Wartburg Store and the vending machine located in the Student Center.

When you use your ACS account at the Wartburg Store, or Dining locations on campus, you will receive a 10% discount off your purchases. There is no discount when using ACS in the Mail Center.
