Feel good about what you eat

Some of your most enduring college memories will come from conversations around the dining table, and the meal shouldn’t be an afterthought.

Beloit’s dining hall takes a farm-to-fork approach . We put a premium on fresh ingredients from family farms, our student-run urban garden , and food producers who use humane, environmentally friendly practices.

Craving something from home? Our menu draws inspiration from all over, including recipes submitted by students and their families.

Fresh, local, and in season

Beloit’s dining service provider is a leader in sustainability . That means your meals are based around fresh, in-season ingredients that generate less waste, emphasize fair trade, and have a low carbon footprint.

Your campus dining options include vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menus at:

  • The Commons Café in Chapin Hall is the main dining hall. It has a comprehensive menu including global cuisine, comfort food, fresh soups and salads, and self-serve rice bowls.
  • D.K.’s Cafe in Pearsons Hall offers breakfast, a full grill menu, salads, and wraps, along with grab-and-go meals and snacks.
  • The Java Joint in Pearsons can satisfy your caffeine addiction until 11 p.m. daily. Its menu includes locally roasted fair-trade coffee, grilled sandwiches, baked goods, and ice cream in fresh sugar cones.
  • The soon-to-open Powerhouse student center will house a casual cafe with grab-and-go food options.
