UPPER EAST SIDE — Hunter College's faculty dining hall was forced to close on Monday after inspectors found mice and flies, according to Department of Health records.
During an inspection at the college's 68th Street campus at 695 Park Ave. on Monday, an inspector slapped the eatery with 33 health violation points and shut it down, records show.
Deborah Raskin, a spokeswoman for Hunter College, said that AVI Foodsystems, an independent food service provider, is responsible for the dining room where food and drinks are served.
"When Hunter College administrators heard about the violations on Monday, they immediately demanded they be corrected and they were," she said.
But the kitchen remained closed as of Wednesday afternoon.
The faculty dining area is located in the school's west building on the eighth floor. The hall's lounge and seating area with tables and chairs remained open, while the area where staff can purchase food and drinks was still shuttered.
AVI asked the Health Department for a re-inspection on Wednesday, but one has not yet been scheduled, according to the DOH.
AVI also runs a cafe for Hunter College students in the same building on the third floor, as well as a Starbucks on the first floor. Both have remained open.
AVI described itself on its website "as a family-owned and operated organization...compelled to promote and encourage responsibility at every level in the company."
The company did not immediately return a call for comment on Wednesday.
