Dining Operations

We recognize that student’s schedules and dining preferences vary from day to day, therefore, we have structured a flexible schedule to accommodate all our students. With meals served throughout the day and bag lunches available for those not able to dine in Commons, a nineteen meal per week plan with unlimited repeats is guaranteed to all the students on the meal plan.

Commons

Commons serves as home to the dining hall and multiple meeting and dining spaces. This broad range of rooms allows students to meet with friends and peers, faculty and organized groups in a comfortable setting.


Dining System

Each student on the meal plan gains access to Commons through swiping his/her Bates ID. Every student on the meal plan also has three bonus meals per semester to be used for a guest of her/his choice. Those not on the meal plan can eat at Commons by paying at the door.
