What Students Are Saying

3.21 Average Rating
The dining hall is set up really nice and is very spacious, but the food quality varies a lot. Depending on the day the food can be great with lots of awesome options and then the next day there isn't much and then what is left is cold and gross.
Meaghan from Taunton, MA
Although she commutes, my sister has had the food before and says it's great! You can also walk just down the street to bagel word, flying saucer, gulu gulu, and so many other places.
Michael from Swampscott, MA
I love my dorm room I had an issue with thrift and they moved me to a single now I am beyond happy. Also we are able to select what rooms we want to live in and I was able to pick a single again for my senior year.
Katelyn - Boston, MA
There are two dining halls on campus, one on north and one on central campus. The one on north is a dining hall downstairs and upstairs there is a burger king, sandellas, hersheys ice cream, and a salad bar. In the brand new dining hall on central campus, there is a burger station, a pizza station, a specials station, a sandwich station, and a salad bar. All the food is catered by Chartwells. There cookies are to die for!
Emma from New Bedford, MA
the food is standard cafeteria food, but with your clipper card you can also dine at local restaurants. there's a sushi place and a sub shop right across from the school that are fantastic, and mediterranean food at the white dove is cheap and delicious.
