Serving up Variety

The dining hall caters to vegan, vegetarian, and omnivorous students, staff, and faculty. You’ll find your favorite treats on regular rotation.

All residential students are on the full meal plan, which includes 19 meals a week—breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays, and brunch and dinner on the weekends. Even if the tables and chairs are socially-distanced, don’t be surprised if the conversations range from pizza toppings to postmodern theory.

After-hours munchies? You’ll also have access to kitchen space in your residence hall, and Rock Cafe in the student union, which serves up snacks until late.
