What’s the food like at Wellesley?

When it comes to food, Wellesley has a lot of options.

The meal plan is pretty simple. You can eat as much as you want at any dining hall on campus. In between meals, you can swing by the halls to grab a quick bite — things like cereal, fruit, and pastries.

Have a food allergy or dietary restriction? Wellesley Fresh has you covered!

Need some Sriracha sauce? Special toppings for your pancakes? Suggestions from students are always welcome.
