Towson University
Glen Dining Hall

Culinary Advisors was part of the design team selected for the renovation of Towson University’s Glen Dining Hall. The facility was originally constructed in 1983 as part of the Glen complex which was designed to accommodate student housing, student dining, and a gathering plaza. The Glen Dining Facility had not been renovated since 2004.


The project’s goal was to recast the dining to a marketplace concept with greater flexibility to accommodate menu and concept changes. To achieve this goal, the 21,000-SF renovation reactivated the space by reorganizing the dining and operational functions. There are six food stations and locations for flexible pop-up stations. The project also expanded and made modifications to the kitchen, replaced the existing dishwashing complex, added a mezzanine and outdoor deck, and made modifications to and replacements of mechanical and electrical systems. Additionally, components that previously blocked the view through the northern curtainwall out to the Glen were demolished in an effort to open the view looking north. The new facility opened in 2020.


The project has a goal of achieving LEED Silver Certification.
