Dining Services

Students dining together in Valentine Hall

Welcome to our table! At Amherst, you’ll be eating great meals with great friends. Our dining locations—from Valentine Hall to Schwemm’s Coffee House—are bright, cheerful spaces where you can settle in for real conversations. Our food is real too. We use fresh, local ingredients, much of which we grow on our own farm and in our hydroponic greenhouse.
