Dining On Campus

All residential guests have the option to eat in campus residential dining halls. This service needs to be arranged by your group organizer in advance. In addition, many retail dining options are available to conference/residential guests.

Residential Dining
If you’re staying in one of our residences during the summer, you’re in for a treat. Our residential dining halls are available to all overnight conference guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (brunch and dinner on Sundays) with a rotating variety of choices at each meal. We take pride in serving delicious, healthy meals using sustainable and local food products. And our staff is happy to assist with special dietary requirements.

Retail Dining
Too rushed to get to a residential dining hall? We’ve still got your meals covered with a variety of on-campus retail options. To name a few: the George Sherman Union Food Hall, Buick Street Market & Cafe, Breadwinners at Questrom School of Business, and the School of Law Cafe.
