Welcome to Williams Dining

Dining With Pride

Dining Services is a full-service dining operation for the entire campus community — students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and campus guests. We operate three dining halls, two snack bars, and a grab ’n go lunch program in addition to the Faculty House/Alumni Center, a catering operation, vending, and the college mail room. Each of our operations has its own unique style, but a commitment to “Dining with Pride” is shared across our entire department.

Only the Best

Our 100+ employees are dedicated to preparing and serving healthy, nutritious, flavorful meals — rain, snow, or shine. Our outstanding customer service is a point of pride for everyone in the department. We purchase only the finest ingredients from nationally branded and reputable suppliers. We are also committed to buying local, fresh food whenever possible, and are members of Berkshire Grown, an organization which promotes sustainable agriculture.

Meeting Your Needs

We offer a flexible system of Meal Plans. The Full Meal Plan allows 10 guest meals each semester, and if you miss dinner, the Full Meal Plan allows you to use your meal credit Late Night in Whitmans’ and the ’82 Grill.  The 14-meal plan allows you to take any 14 of the 21 meals offered and 6 guest meals each semester. There is also a 10-meal plan, a 5-meal plan for seniors, and a 50-meal block plan for off-campus & co-op students. All students on Meal Plans may participate in special events such as the annual Harvest Dinner and the Recipe from Home contest.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the department at 597-2121, or visit our administrative offices in Droppers House at 15 Park Street.
