Dining Services

With WPI's many dining options, there's something for everyone. There's Morgan Commons, which offers a buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner with several entree choices, including vegetarian options and pizza, a salad bar, and grilled food (like hamburgers and chicken). In the Rubin Campus Center, you'll find an array of fast food choices in the food court, including pizza, stir fry, chicken wings, Quiznos, soups, salads and burgers, as well as the Garden Emporium salad bar.  For a quick breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up, try Dunkin' Donuts for coffees, smoothies, sandwiches, and pastries. Visit the Goat's Head, our on-campus restaurant for casual dining, take-out and live entertainment.  Students may choose from several meal plan options whether they are living on or off campus.
