Summer 2022: Coronavirus Information

Dining Services

If you live in on-campus housing, you participate in the board plan and enjoy a comprehensive dining program during your session. Your board plan allows you to eat with peers in your designated dining hall and enjoy menus that reflect the international character of the Summer School. 

Daily Menu

Every day in your dining hall, you will find a core set of menu offerings – cereals, condiments, yogurts, fruit, grill items, salad bar selections, and beverages – as well as rotating hot entree, soup, and pasta selections so that you have a delectable range of options. Every meal includes vegetarian and vegan selections, as well as a balance between healthy and indulgent choices.

Daily Schedule

Meals are served three times a day, seven days a week during your session or program. See the “Summer Dining Calendar” below for specific meal start and end dates from 2022.

• Full breakfast: 7:30 to 10:30 am
