Dining Halls

Our dining halls do more than just provide delicious meals. By offering more local and organic foods through our Farm to Fork program and by serving only antibiotic-free chicken, we are making strides towards a healthier, more socially responsible way of eating. In partnership with the Bon Appétit Management Company, we provide a remarkable selection of foods in a variety of settings.

Rathskeller

Open for lunch, the homey Rathskeller restaurant on the lower level of Wilder Hall is a favorite among students, faculty, and staff. You can serve yourself lunch from the buffet or order from the a la carte menu. Cozy booths invite companions to linger over dessert and perhaps an intellectual debate.
