Dining services

It’s not mom’s cooking—but it’s close. And it’s probably healthier than what you’d make for yourself. The entres, salads and soups available in the dining center and short-order sandwiches and more at the Hub diner are delicious and nutritious. And maybe even more important for your health: Meals are a great time to relax and be with friends.


Northwestern’s food services provider is Sodexo, an industry leader known as much for its social responsibility programs combating hunger and environmental degradation as its great-tasting food. Sodexo provides Northwestern students with a variety of menus and dining locations. Students also choose from among 5 different meal plans, depending on how much or how little they intend to eat in the cafeteria.
