Dining and Meal Plans



Bon Appetit cooks from scratch using fresh, authentic ingredients. They participate in a Farm to Fork program; which means their first choice is to purchase seasonal ingredients from small, owner-operated farms and ranches within a 150-mile radius of our café. They work hard to offer a healthy, nutritious, and delicious menu. Most importantly, Bon Appetit cares about the guests. They are committed to knowing that guests are leaving happy and satisfied. If this is not happening, they want to know! If you have questions, comments, feedback, or suggestions, please let Bon Appetit know. You can contact the  general manager, Amanda Noble, at or visit her office located in Elaine’s Dining Commons.

You can view hours, menus, and more on Bon Appetit's website.

All residential students will select their meal plan choice as a part of the housing application. Students that commute, who want a meal plan, can select one online through their dashboard right before the semester begins. Once the meal plan request is submitted, you will see the charges appear on your student account.

Students living in the residence hall are required to purchase a meal plan. The meal plan can be used in Elaine’s Dining Commons or the Rose Hills Foundation Cafe.
