Meal Plan & Cafe Card

Hampshire College Students Eating Lunch

Block Meal Plans

All meal plans are optional for the 2019-2020 academic year. You are welcome to choose the size of block meal plan that fits your dining needs. Block meal plans may be purchased during the academic year, but do not roll over to the next semester. Choose only what you need for the current semester. Block meal plans purchased after 11/15 will be assigned to the Spring semester. 

To purchase a block meal plan, students can login to the TheHub and select “Meal Plans” under the “Financial Info” section. The plan will be entered on their OneCard for use at any Hampshire dining location: Bridge Café, Kern Kafé, and dining commons.

Block meal plans come with guest meal tokens that can be used by the purchaser or shared with others. Guest meal tokens can be used either semester during the academic year in which they are received.
