At our 17 room and board houses, all-you-can-eat food is included in your rent during the academic year. You cannot opt out. During the summer, you have a choice between houses with food and houses without food.
Members prepare dinner for the house as part of their 5-hour a week workshift. For other meals, the fully stocked pantry and commercial kitchen are available for you to use to make your own meals. The BSC purchases food in bulk to keep costs low, though members are also welcome to buy and make their own food.
For those living in a Co-op apartment or house without food service, or for those not living in the BSC, meal contracts are available. You can choose between 24/7 unlimited access for $1,155 a semester or 5-night dinners for $549 a semester. Boarding is a great way to try out co-op living and also earns seniority points which give priority for housing.
