Northwestern students eat together in the Hub.

Dining services

It’s not mom’s cooking—but it’s close. And it’s probably healthier than what you’d make for yourself. The entrees, salads and soups available in the dining center, and short-order sandwiches and more at the Hub diner, are delicious and nutritious. And maybe even more important for your health: Meals are a great time to relax and be with friends.

Most students eat 2 or 3 meals a day in the DeWitt Dining Center, where made-to-order serving stations offer entrees, pasta, salad, soup, sandwiches, desserts and beverages. Cozy round tables enable you to eat family-style with your friends. The dining center serves breakfast Monday-Friday and lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

The Hub (as it's known to students) serves grilled and deli food in a diner setting. It's open from morning to late night Monday through Friday and during evening hours on the weekend. The Hub also hosts live music, poetry slams and more.

Common Grounds coffee bar in the DeWitt Learning Commons serves hot and cold specialty drinks for caffeinated studying or smooth[ie] socializing. Grab-and-go breakfast and lunch items are also available.

Northwestern's food service provider, Sodexo, is an industry leader known as much for its social responsibility programs combating hunger and environmental degradation as its great-tasting food. Sodexo provides NWC students with a variety of menus, dining locations and meal plans.
