Does the institution have a trayless dining program in which trays are removed from or not available in dining halls?:
Yes

A brief description of the trayless dining program:

We have three locations on campus where no trays are used. Three of our five buffet-style dining operations have trays available for those who choose to use them, but it is very convenient for those who choose not to . We changed the location of the trays in 2010 which made it so that using a tray was not an automatic impulse. In two of our buffet locations, trays are required as the dish rooms are located in the basement level. Soiled dishes must be placed on trays to be transported via a dish return that lowers trays and dishes to the dish room.
