Dining

Saint Mary's Dining Services has a meal program designed to meet your individual needs.

We know you're busy with classes, sports, clubs and service activities, and we make sure that you can find a nourishing and enjoyable meal or snack when you need it.

On Campus Dining

Saint Mary's College contracts with the Sodexo Corporation to provide food service in Oliver Hall, Cafe Louis, and for many of the student socials. The College offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the week, and brunch and dinner on weekends. The Late Night Dining Program offered nightly gives students a break from studying and a place to gather with friends to enjoy comfort food, and study snacks like burgers, cereal, nachos, or ice cream.

Please visit the SMC Dining Services website for daily menus, hours of operation and additional information about our campus eateries.
