Break Meal Information

Meals during breaks are not part of the meal plan, with the exception of the October break. The last meal in plan at the start of breaks varies, depending on whether exams directly precede the start of the break.  For example:  the last meal in plan for the  November break is dinner on Friday while for December break  it is dinner on Saturday because this break is preceded by exams. Additionally, dining may not be open for the entirety of all break periods.

Meals available over breaks are provided to students at a reduced rate, which may be charged to your student account or paid for with cash or credit/debit.  To help cover the cost of meals during non-meal plan periods, students may use their guest passes or additional passes earned through the mug club.

Following is the 2017-2018 break meal schedule. Note that those meals in bold italics are NOT included in the meal plan.  If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please contact Christine Schwartz. AVP Dining, Conferences and Campus events at cschwart@bates.edu.
