What Students Are Saying

4.35 Average Rating
Absolutely superb, considering the traffic that goes through the halls each day. Dewick and Carmichael both serve an amazing variety of food, including options for vegetarians and those that suffer from allergies. Considering the fact that we're talking college cafeteria food, the cooks and staff do an excellent job, and I actually look forward to every meal.
John from Somerville, MA
Tufts has AH-MAZING food. It's always of a terrific quality and variety. The best thing any prospective student can do is come to Tufts and try for themselves.
Matt from Indianapolis, IN
Our food is good--especially the Butternut Squash Bisque. That's to die for!
We also have a lot of theme nights: Mardi Gras, Thanksgiving, Pajama Party (Breakfast for Dinner), Under the Sea, Dim Sum Brunch and many more. We also have regular Stir Fry Nights.
There are also non-dining hall options, we have a few cafes, a to-go/convenience store like spot called Hodgdon, and late night dining at the Commons.
You'll never go hungry. If you do, make sure to order a Blue-Zone from Helen's! You will never regret it.
Proud Jumbo from Oakland, CA
Tufts dining was ranked #9 in the US for a reason: the food is great There are vegetarian options, meat-lovers options, a deli, a pizza station, a huge salad bar, and more! There are 2 main dining halls, Carmichael and Dewick, and a to-go place, Hodgdon. Tufts Campus Center also has many stations where you can get a bite!

dewick and carmichael are both fantastic dining halls that offer great food and a lot of options. i find myself wishing they were open later, though.
Thomas from Braintree, MA
Buffet style makes the Freshman 15 hard to fight. Sometimes it gets repetitive but you have to be creative.
Emily from Freehold, NJ
Tufts dining is fantastic, they have such a wide variety of options that I never get tired of the same old food. There are always sandwiches, soups, and salads available, in addition to the two or three entrees offered per meal. There is also a wide selection of vegetarian foods at every meal.
