Dining Options

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. For 2016, the SSW Dining Room is located in King/Scales. [map]

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.
