Hampshire College Students in the Cafeteria

Dining Options, Meal Plans, and Café Card

For the academic year 2017-2018, Hampshire College requires that students participate in a meal plan according to the following schedule:

Full Meal Plan

Required of all residents of Merrill, Dakin, and Prescott suite #104.

This plan permits one-time access to each of the 19 all-you-can-eat meal periods each week in the dining commons. Meal swaps may be used at the Bridge Cafe instead of the dining hall, M-F during the lunch period only. Participants may also access the dining commons between breakfast and lunch for coffee/beverage service only.

$2,543 per semester

Voluntary Block Meal Plan

Optional for students housed in modular apartments, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott (exclud­ing Prescott suite#104), and com­muter students.

Each block meal counts for one all-you-can-eat visit to the Hampshire College dining commons.

  • 25 all-you-can-eat meals: $225
  • 50 all-you-can-eat meals: $440
  • 75 all-you-can-eat meals: $655
  • 100 all-you-can-eat meals: $870

Block meal plans purchased before November 15 do not carry over to spring semester. When you purchase a block meal plan on or after November 15, any unused block plan meals will carry over to spring semester. Unused block plan meals do not carry over to fall semester. Please consider this when selecting your block meal plan. To purchase, students must log on to TheHub and select Meal Plans under the Financial Info section. All block plans are nonrefundable and non-transferable.

Café Card

Students are billed a $200 Café Card fee each semester, which will be entered on their OneCard for use at the dining commons, Bridge Café, Kern Kafe, and Mixed Nuts. The Café Card fee is non-refundable and does not carry over from the spring to fall semester. Please contact Bon Appétit if you have dietary restrictions to determine suitable meals that can be purchased with your Café Card.
