Fall 2021 Meal Plan for On-Campus Students

Smith will offer dining across 11 locations this fall. Kitchens will offer a variety of traditional buffets and grab and go, as well as pre-order options through the Grubhub app to allow students to meet their level of comfort. Meals on the residential board plan will be available continuously throughout the day, with Chase grab and go open from breakfast through dinner. The new Neilson Compass Café and the Campus Center Café will accept meal swipes for lunch (Compass) and weekday breakfast (Campus Center), and late dinner from 7–10:30 p.m. nightly (Campus Center).

Students can use the Grubhub app to pre-order and customize food choices at both retail locations, as well as at the Lamont and Kosher dining locations. Students can download the app on their phone or other iOS or Android mobile device, and food will be cooked to order, with notifications sent when the food is ready for pick up. Grab and go options are available at Chase, Emerson and Chapin. In addition to 4 board swipes per day used in the dining rooms or retail cafés (as a meal equivalency), students will receive $100 a year in Dining Dollars. If you don’t have an iOS or Android device, please reach out to Andy Cox,, to apply for a borrowed college device.
