Resources for Eating On and Off Campus

On Campus Dining

Anderson Commons is the main campus dining facility. Meal plans are available, although one-time dining is always an option. Bon Appetit, the food service at Wheaton, is consistently ranked among the best in the nation! To find Anderson's hours and menu of the day, go to Bon Appetit's website.

All Bon Appetit meal plans are available to graduate students, but the graduate student only 65 meal block plan offers the greatest flexibility for meals that can be use at any time with unused meals rolling over into the spring semester.

Meal plans may be requested or changed by emailing housing.services@wheaton.edu. The deadline to make changes for any meal plan is the Friday of the first week of classes by 4:30 pm. To check your account balance, add ThunderBucks, see your transaction history, or report a lost/stolen card login to Wheaton Student Link with your normal student portal credentials. Deadline for changes for the Spring 2022 semester will be Friday, January 14th by 4:30 pm. Please feel free to contact housing.services@wheaton.edu if you have any questions.

The Stupe is located on campus in lower Beamer and provides options such as burgers, fries, and other items from the grill. It also offers a student bundle which includes a burger (veggie option available) or grilled chicken sandwich, drink, french fries or sweet potato fries, and dessert. 

The Stupe is currently closed due to Covid-19 precautions.
