Frequently Asked Questions - Dining and Menus
About half the residence halls do not have dining facilities, but it’s not much of a walk to the nearest one. Residential students with meal plans may dine at any of the residential dining facilities, which makes it very handy to get to a meal from anywhere on campus. Refer to the Dining Options, Menus, & Hours page.
We make every effort to inform diners of entrée ingredients that are associated with common food allergies. Detailed lists of these foods by allergen can be found on our Food Allergies page. In addition, students with food allergies and special dietary needs are invited to consult with our registered dietitians to make sure their dining and nutritional needs are met.

Residential cafés offer extended dining hours, with several open as late as 1:00 a.m.
There is a dining hall in or near every residence hall. Students may dine at any of the residential dining halls. Martha Cook Building and Henderson House are restricted to residents of these buildings. Learn more about dining services. Check out our maps if you need directions.
While students are welcome to eat as much as they like within the Dining Hall, the only items that can be carried out of the Dining Hall are a piece of fruit or a dessert. Students may not remove any kitchen equipment or utensils, such as china, flatware, or silverware. Bringing containers into the Dining Hall for use in removing food is prohibited. We encourage students who don’t have time to enjoy a meal within our Dining Halls instead to ask for a Meal-To-Go.
