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 and vending. 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 21-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 meals offered and 6 guest meals each semester. There is also a 5-meal plan and a 50-meal block plan available 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.

Upcoming Events

  • New! Student Dining Meal Plan Changes, GET App 

    Dining Services is pleased to announce some valuable changes to the student meal plan, and the launch of the new GET App to manage your card accounts. The GET App is available for use on Monday, August 28, 2017.  Two swipes per mealtime will be available at the start of the fall board plan with dinner on September 6, 2017.

    Here are the details:

    Lee Snack Bar Midday Meal Equivalency: If you’re on the 21, 14, 5, or 50 block meal plans, you can now use full meal equivalency at Lee Snack Bar between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. every day.

    Two swipes per mealtime:
    Anyone on a meal plan can now swipe twice per meal period. The only requirement is a one-hour delay between transactions. This policy will be in effect at all campus locations. Remember: your total weekly meal swipes are still limited to the meal plan you purchased. Bonus meals are also unchanged: 10 per semester for anyone on the 21-meal plan, and 6 per semester for those on the 14-meal plan. (Bonus meals are available after the week of meal plan changes September 25th.)

    Check out the new GET App!: With GET, you can manage your campus card accounts anytime, from anywhere. Features include: secure credit card deposits to your Eph Points account; the option to bill your deposits to your student term account; and access to your real-time account balance and transaction history. It’s an easy, convenient, and secure way to manage dining funds. These funds will be available immediately on your card. For more information visit our website:  https://dining.williams.edu/get-app/. Please note that effective on 8/28/17, you can no longer purchase points through your PeopleSoft account.  All points purchases must be made through the new app.

    We designed these changes to make the dining options more flexible and adaptable to student lifestyles. Have a comment or idea you want to share? Send it to [email protected] We want to hear from you.

    Cash and Eph Points are accepted at all venues. Master Card, VISA, and Discover are accepted at all venues except Paresky Grab and Go.
