Dartmouth Dining Services Meets the Challenge in Challenging Times

While observing social distancing guidelines, the staff at Dartmouth Dining Services continues to serve meals to students who are living on campus. The Class of 1953 Commons is open for these students and for staff who work in the dorms. The majority of students order their food ahead and pick up prepared bags, but some pick up food in the cafeteria for takeout. ’53 Commons is open for breakfast from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.; lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and dinner from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Access is limited to 10 students at a time for meal pickup and is not open to students, faculty or staff who are living off-campus.
