A number of dining options exist on campus.  The closest location for lunch, coffee, or a quick bite is at the Usdan University Center, located just across from the Center for the Arts, and directly adjacent to Beckham Hall.

On the first floor of the Usdan Center, one will find a café with sandwiches and sushi, and on the third floor the Daniel Family Commons provides lunch from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  Additionally, Weshop near Olin Library provides basic supplies and groceries.  For more on university dining options, click here.
