The BC Dining Experience

What Makes Us Unique?

BC Dining is a self-operated campus service - we don't outsource production of any of our food. 


Eat what you want, where you want, and when you want.  Unlike most universities, dining is à la carte.  This means unrestricted take-out of all foods.


Students are given 32 academic weeks to use their mandatory dining dollars - students never have to forfeit unused meals for the week.


Diverse dining locations provide almost 24 hours of on-campus dining options.  This includes mini-marts, a specialty coffee shop with homemade chocolate treats, and a seasonal farmer's market featuring local purveyors of fresh produce.


We provide an extensive selection of foods, including our Plain & Simple options which are free from the eight major allergens, as well as gluten.


Between the 5,100 students on a required meal plan and the additional 4,000 who choose to participate in "flex" plans, we have a near 100% participation rate in our dining program.


Our dining staff comes from around the world with 33 nations represented and 14 languages spoken.  They take pride in sharing their cuisines with our dining program.


All our employees receive the same opportunities and benefits as our faculty.
