UWC-USA students share meals in the Castle Dining Hall, a grand room that features two Dale Chihuly sculptures and beautiful architectural details. Food selection is extensive, and every meal includes a vegetarian option. At lunch and dinner, students can choose from a full salad bar, a daily soup, and a choice of two entrees. The meal schedule for Monday through Friday is:
7:30 – 8:30 breakfast
12:00 – 1:30 lunch (2:00 on Wednesdays)
6:00 – 7:30 dinner
On weekends, brunch is served from 10 am – noon, and dinner is from 5:45 – 7 pm.
In addition, students may purchase pizza, chicken nuggets, smoothies, and other items at the Red Door Café, which is open nightly from 9 – 11:30 pm and open in the mornings for espresso drinks and boba teas (no hot food) from 9-11:30 am. The Café also sells sweatshirts and tee-shirts.
In the day rooms of each dorm, you’ll find an oven, microwave, and refrigerator. Creative cooks have whipped up elaborate gourmet meals with just these resources!
