De Neve dining hall, Rendezvous scheduled to undergo renovations in 2014
De Neve dining hall will close during the spring and summer of 2014, and is set to reopen fall of next year, said Peter Angelis, assistant vice chancellor of UCLA Housing and Hospitality Services. Rendezvous will close in fall of 2014 and is predicted to reopen in summer of 2015, he said. De Neve dining hall is set to reopen before Rendezvous closes for repairs, Angelis added. De Neve dining hall is predicted to cost $1.2 million to renovate and Rendezvous is set to cost $2.4 million, he said. De Neve dining hall, which seats up to 900 people at a time, is one of the most popular dining facilities on the Hill, and UCLA intends to expedite the renovations by avoiding a total gut of the dining halls interior, Angelis said.
