Residential Dining

Worry About Grades, Not Groceries

You will love dining on campus. There are no dishes, and someone else does all the work of making sure you have delicious, healthy food options. The Dining Hall is inside the Residence Halls at Northampton, so getting a meal is as easy as visiting a neighbor.

All You Care to Eat

We don't like to say "all you can eat." There is something unhealthy about it. But at the Dining Hall at Northampton, you can eat quite a lot. That's because you pick and choose your favorite foods and serving sizes. And you can always go back for more.
