Food Truck Pad 2 Relocating Due to Construction

Houston, Dec. 3, 2014 — The food truck pad that was serving the UH community near Cemo Hall has closed for the rest of the fall semester to accommodate the construction of the Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering Building.

The site, known as food truck pad No. 2, closed after the Thanksgiving break. Plans are being worked out to re-open the site at a nearby location on Jan. 20, just in time for the start of the spring semester. Details about that location will be announced to the UH community when they are finalized.

In the meantime, food trucks will continue to serve the campus at Pad 1, which is located in front of the Science Building. The trucks will continue to work in a rotation, allowing students, faculty and staff to enjoy a variety of different lunch offerings. Click here to view the food truck schedule.

The new Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering Building is set to open in the spring of 2016 and will feature a new, built-in food truck pad.
