2013-14 Housing Guide for New Students and Parents

The Meal Plan

All new students are required to participate in the Full Meal Plan – most often called the 21 meal plan but because it will include unlimited dining hall access it is now called the Full Meal Plan.  That means you can enter the two large dining halls as many times a day as you would like during their open periods (see schedule below).  A diner and campus pub provide equivalency meals (you can eat one of their “specials” instead of eating in either of the two dining halls) but are not part of the unlimited access program.  The meals are good, the choices are many, the dining facilities are clean and well-maintained, the set-up is creative, and our food service, Bon Appetit, does a great job attending to the culinary needs of students here at Hamilton.  There is also Café Opus, an independent coffeehouse that provides specialty coffees, muffins, fruit and drinks daily. If you have special dietary needs or medical concerns, please indicate those needs on your housing preference form.  Please note that dining halls will be officially closed for breaks during '14-'15. Students on campus can eat on a pay-as-you-go basis during that time.
