Students getting food in The Grove

As the central hub of a $134 million complex, The Grove, a new dining area with seating for 800, serves cuisine from around the world along with vegetarian and vegan options.

So. Many. Choices.

Whatever your taste buds are craving, your meal plan comes with meal swipes and Corsair cash, making it easy to dine at the all-you-can eat Marketplace, cafes, and quick on-the-go carts. If you’re in a rush, skip the lines at select locations by ordering and paying ahead with the Boost App. And if you want to explore the area, plenty of dining options are available near campus and in New Bedford.
