The once homey Rathskeller restaurant on the lower level of Wilder Hall has been a favorite lunch spot among students, faculty, and staff. Commonly referred to as the Rat,this restaurant offered a lunch buffet as well as an à la carte menu.

As part of an overarching strategy to manage the quality and expense of the campus dining program, the Rathskeller kitchen has closed as of spring 2017. A campus dining committee will reimagine the space and develop a plan for how it will be used and what will be served.

While planning is under way, the Rat can be reserved for special events, study groups, and small group meetings.
