Dining Plan Fall 2020

During our Covid response period we are offering a meal plan to address the nutritional needs of our community.  All students will be on a meal plan with 26 meals per week.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be offered 7 days per week and late night dining will be offered 5 days per week. 

For questions about our dining options please see the FAQ page or email us at valentine@amherst.edu 


Five College Dining Program 

At this time Amherst College students are not permitted to leave campus - this program will recommence once these restrictions are lifted.

In support of Five College academic opportunities, a dining meal exchange is available for any student enrolled in a meal plan at one of the five colleges. A request for participating in the meal exchange will be granted for academic reasons only. Other meal exchange requests, for which there is a compelling reason, will be reviewed on an individual basis.

To request permission to participate in the meal exchange a student must follow the guidelines provided by the Dining Service office on the home campus where the student has enrolled in a meal plan. With the application the student must provide documentation of enrollment in a course at the other campus where the student is seeking permission to eat under the meal exchange program.

To utilize the meal exchange or obtain further information, contact the Dining Service office on your home campus. The links below connect to details and contact information for meal exchange at the campuses.
