Spring Break Hours

Dartmouth Dining locations will be curtailing our hours between terms.

If you would like to be on a different dining plan during spring term, please request the change online or in person at the Dartmouth Card Office before you leave for spring break.  Spring term dining plans changes must be requested before 4 PM on Wednesday, March 29th.  Any changes processed after the start of the dining plans may be prorated.

Take Less = Waste Less

Between 30 and 40% of all food in the United States ends up in landfills and composting bins each year. Help Dartmouth lead the way in reducing this statistic.  

The crew at 1953 Commons makes sure we compost 100% of what is not eaten, but there are still plenty of opportunities to waste less food.  The best way is to help is to make sure you are not taking more than you eat.  It's harder than it sounds, since there are so many different options and we fill our plates when we are at our hungriest. Make the sustainable choice and take less on your first trip.  You can always go back for more!
