What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
The Dining Commons wears on you. I was kind of digging it for the first two weeks but not so much after that. Actually, one of the reasons most people say they want to move from the dorms to the mods is because the dining common food is so bad and expensive...
Rodrigo
Expensive but I always found something to eat, not sure about people with dietary restrictions though. I have a kitchen now, I didn't do this but if you can afford it I highly recommend getting a co-op from the farm. The dining commons uses all farm and local food I think. There are pick your own fields on the farm and apple trees all over campus in the fall which feels like a real luxury.
Sakiya from Saint Louis, MO
The food is a lot better than expected. As a freshman, I have unlimited meals at the dining hall. They do a very good job keeping it vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, etc... friendly. Everyday there is something new. Pizza is really good, but what I look forward to most is the stir-fry. It is available every single lunch and dinner.
David from East Windsor, CT
Food is pretty good, and any food not eaten is donated to local shelters and food pantries. That is totally cool.
Kahari from Springfield, MA
Hampshire has fresh fruits and vegetables from the farm, gluten free and vegan options! However, I would not say the food is always super delicious.
Erin from Chicago, IL
The food is okay, but it is always there, and it is buffet style, which means as many servings as you need.
George from New York, NY
SAGA is decent. The Bridge Cafe and the Night Truck and off-campus food are rather good.
Nate from Washington, D.C.
Tasty meal plans, but only one option.
Joshua from Huntington Woods, MI
what i like the most about the food and dining commons is that there are always options and even if the students do not like the food that has been cooked, the students can cook things themselves. however, the food has improved. dining areas are usually always kept clean which is a bonus.
