Dining Services

Dining on campus is a quintessential part of the overall college experience! Bennington Dining Services takes great pride in providing an experience our customers will never forget. Through our variety of dining locations, board menu offerings, and friendly and welcoming staff we strive to make your dining experience excellence. We are here to help you in any way we can—just ask!

Bennington proves that college food can be inspiring, nourishing, and delicious. The Commons Dining Hall is continually creating new and flavorful meals alongside the much-loved staples. Meals offer students a wide range of options, drawing on cuisines from Thai to Cajun to Italian. Vegetarian, Vegan, and Made Without Gluten selections are served at every meal.

The Commons Dining Hall has four dining rooms and two outdoor patios. It serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner on weekdays, and on weekends a continental breakfast, brunch, and dinner.

If you have a favorite meal or dessert from home, send the recipe to dining@bennington.edu and, if possible, they will feature it on the menu.
