Welcome to Catering Services!

Thank you for choosing UIHC Catering Services for your next event.  Planning ahead is essential for the success of your event, so please take a moment to consider the following items:

  • Do you have a location reserved for your event?

  • What time will your event begin and end?

  • What level of service does your event require?

    • Catering Business Express: delivery service, available throughout the UIHC and College of Medicine complex.

    • Special Event Catering: staffed service, available in all Food and Nutrition Services conference rooms (includes the East Room, Atrium Dining Room, Atrium Conference A/B, Clasen Board Room, Clasen Conference Rooms, Melrose Conference Rooms, and VPMA/COM designated rooms).

  • How many guests are you expecting?

  • Have you reviewed our services and policies?

Once you have collected all of the above information for your event, we ask that you fill out a hospital requisition (click to follow the link).  This requisition is your catering order form.  To avoid duplicate orders, we ask that you do NOT send the original requisition to our office, but instead keep it for your records.  We will contact you if we need the original at any point in time.


At UIHC Catering Services, we make every effort to provide the menu items and the level of service you request.  Our ability to do this is directly affected by the amount of notice we receive prior to your event.  For this reason, we ask that you give a one week notice for a Catering Business Express event, and a three week notice for a Special Event Catering event in order to provide the menu and the staffing that your event requires.  If you are unable to give advance notice, we reserve the right to make modifications to your menu if necessary.  You may also incur additional charges. 


Our service-oriented staff is here to make sure your event goes as planned. Managing catered events is what we’re all about!  We have years of experience in the catering field and would be happy to assist you in any way we can.  Please let us share our knowledge with you and help plan an event that exceeds your expectations!


Please contact us if you have any questions along the way: 356-4836
