Dining Services is continuing its plan to better serve UNH students with the
scheduled Oct. 1 opening of Albert’s Café in the main entrance
of the newly renovated Kingsbury Hall.
Home to the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, the College Road
building is named for Albert Kingsbury, a professor of mechanical engineering
from 1889 to 1899. But the café’s name works equally well for
the college’s ability to conjure up images of the theoretical physicist
Albert’s will offer such “grab-and-go” food as ready-made
sandwiches, subs and salads. There will also be breakfast sandwiches and bagels,
with a microwave and toaster nearby for students to use. A reach-in cooler
will be stocked with cold drinks and Peet’s premium coffee will be served.
“This is part of a larger initiative by Dining Services to provide more
food service options to students,” says Rich LeHoullier, a dining area
manager. “Students can get in and get out quickly between classes.”
The café will have a small area to seat about 12 people. Cash, credit
cards and dining dollars will be accepted.
Initially, the café will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m.
to 2 p.m.
“We’re going to start off slow. If the demand increases, we’ll
look at nights and weekends,” LeHoullier says.
Albert’s opening follows on heels of other Dining Services’ initiatives
that have ramped up options for students and other members of the UNH community.
Improvements have been made at the MUB food court and the Wildcatessen at Stillings
Hall has been completely renovated, almost doubling it size and expanding its
menu and small grocery items.
