2020 Spring Quarter Meal Plan

R&DE Stanford Dining is committed to providing excellent service and meals to all students remaining on campus during the 2020 Spring Quarter. Undergraduate students are assigned a home dining hall based on where they reside and provided one meal plan option for the quarter.

R&DE Stanford Dining will continue to offer a daily variety of delicious, nutritious options including vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, kosher and halal. The Food Allergies@Stanford program offers support and dining accommodations to students with food allergies or other dietary concerns. You can review daily menu options for your location online. Please note: for the 2020 Spring Quarter, all meals are pre-packed and for to-go only.
