SSW Dining Room

All students who choose to live on campus, except those in family housing, are on the full board plan, which entitles them to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week.

The School for Social Work uses one main dining room during the summer, which is centrally located to the housing dorms. In 2014, meals will be in the King/Scales dining room

Meals are served buffet-style to accommodate the busy schedules of students. A salad bar is always available at lunch and dinner. The College dining staff will make every effort to accommodate special dietary needs when possible.

Meal Plans

The School for Social Work has established a meal plan for students living off-campus and for students with children living in Friedman House. You may choose to purchase 25 meals for $175 or a half-plan of 12 meals for $87.50. These meals may be of any combination of breakfast, lunch or dinner. The appropriate number of meals will be added to your I.D. card, which you must swipe to gain access to the dining room.

The completed form should be returned to the Housing Coordinator, either by mail, email (, or fax (413-585-7994).
