Welcome to Dining at Wesleyan 


Bon Appétit has been the food service provider for Wesleyan University since the Fall 2007. Founded in 1987, Bon Appétit Management Company is an onsite custom restaurant company that provides café and catering services to corporations, college and universities, and specialty venues. Bon Appétit is known for its culinary expertise, commitment to socially responsible food sourcing and business practices, and strong partnerships with respected conservation organizations. Unlike other university food service providers, Bon Appétit manages the dining program for Wesleyan University, allowing Wesleyan to maintain oversight over all aspects of the dining program instead of letting an outside company make decisions for us. This has allowed Bon Appétit to develop a partnership with the community to implement an innovative and highly satisfactory dining program.

The Wesleyan University community is proud to partner with a company that shares our values and equally proud of the level of culinary expertise and commitment to social responsibility they will bring to our campus dining program.

There are multiple dining venues on campus, managed by Bon Appetit including the Usdan Marketplace, Usdan Cafe, Summerfields, and Pi Cafe. The Wes Shop is also managed by Bon Appetit and provides a mini-market with a large inventory for on campus groceries. Dining locations are only open during regular semester periods. Breaks and summer they are either closed or on a modified schedule.

Spring Semester At-A-Glance:

Spring meal plans run from January 2nd - May 22nd.  The number of meals and points on your selected meal plan should cover that entire time period. Please follow all recommended dining plan budgets so that you do not run out of points or meal swipes. Please remember that all meal plans are based on costs at Bon Appetit dining locations, the University food service contractor.  Any other locations that accept points should only be used occasionally as their price points are higher than the budgets that the meal plans are based on.

End of semester: Dining plans end following brunch on Saturday 5/18.  Individuals who have received permission to remain on campus until Commencement (5/26) will have access to dine using swipes or points in Usdan Marketplace only between Saturday 5/18 and Wednesday 5/22 when Bon Appetit closes to prepare for reunion commencement activities.  Several meals will also be available over Reunion Commencement weekend using meal swipes or points: Friday 5/24 dinner, Saturday, 5/25 lunch, Sunday 5/26 brunch.

Students on the all-points plan now also have 20 meal swipes!  Save them for days when only Marketplace is open so it's easier to dine.  For budget recommendations check out the Semester Point Usage plan located on the WesCard page.
