The values of the department as a whole include trust and respect, community, shared leadership, authentic relationships, creativity and innovation, and stewardship.

UHDS strives to provide students, faculty, staff, and guests with safe, economical, convenient, and comfortable living and dining options, and the department works to maintain the highest educational and service standards.
