Campus Auxiliary Services, known simply as CAS, is a not-for-profit company dedicated to serving the SUNY Geneseo campus. We are passionate about Geneseo - the community, the college, and the individuals that make up the campus. We provide several nonacademic services to SUNY Geneseo. While most known for our dining program, we also provide catering, laundry, cable, vending, ID, refuse and recycling, as well as a host of other services. Together, our team takes care of the members of the campus community so that they can focus on why they're here - academics. On-Campus Restaurants and Cafes is our largest division. SUNY Geneseo is a premier public arts college, consistently ranked high in US News & World Report and Kiplinger's for being a "best value" and offering outstanding educational value. The non-academic services that CAS offers the campus have transformed over the years to match the quality of the campus; as such, restaurants and cafes have replaced cafeterias and highly trained chefs have replaced many line cook positions. We have eight on-campus restaurants and cafes as well as a food truck and sporting concessions, offering students, faculty, staff and visitors a vast array of dining experiences. Our restaurants and cafes provide various ethnic cuisines from American, Filipino, and Korean on a daily basis to many other specialty dishes throughout the week. Our catering department services small functions on campus, such as Texas barbeques and cultural dinners to high-end functions such as dinners at the Geneseo President's house. Our culinary team has the abilities to compete at the ACF with awards in both individual and team events.
