Which dining plans can I choose from? 

Expand Filter List Collapse Filter List

First-year students are automatically placed on the Premium Plan. Second-year students in university housing without an approved kitchen must select from the 160- or 220-meals per semester or the Premium Plan. We encourage all other students to enroll in the plan of their choice before returning to campus.

In the dining centers, how often will commonly touched surfaces (e.g., tables, chairs, water/soda fountains) be cleaned?

High-contact surfaces will be cleaned frequently. Serving utensils are changed every time a pan or dish is replenished. Self-service is allowed and guest should sanitize their hands before serving themselves. The university cleaning standards will apply to all other aspects of the dining operations.

As of June 1, 2021, indoor dining returns to pre-pandemic capacity. Only those who are fully vaccinated and in the testing protocol may eat in Camrichael and Dewick-MacPhie Dining Centers. All other locations package food to-go. Anyone eating indoors is strongly encouraged to consume and then cover with their mask when they are not actively eating or drinking. Dining Centers offer to-go containers for those who prefer to eat outdoors or elsewhere.

I have food allergies. Will I still be accommodated?

All menu items at Fresh at Carmichael are now gluten, peanut and treenut free. At Dewick-MacPhie has a gluten-free pantry, and food free of the nine most common allergens are prepared and served at each meal period from the ALL 9 FREE platform in Dewick-MacPhie. Students with specific dietary needs may be eligible for accommodation and should contact the StAAR Center for more information. The Tufts Dining dietitian is available for more specific information and can be reached at kelly.shaw@tufts.edu.

If you have been approved for reasonable accommodations by Student Accessibility Services in prior semesters, you do not need to reapply. (Please note that, with the former Academic Resource Center, Student Accessibility Services is now part of the StAAR Center.) Tufts will strive to continue your existing accommodations, though some changes and modifications may be necessary.

If you have a newly diagnosed condition, or are new to Tufts and require reasonable accommodation due to food allergies, please contact the StAAR Center for an accommodation. The Tufts Dining dietitian is available for consultation and can provide additional information about the dining program.
