Beginning Sunday, June 19, and running Sunday through Thursday from 8:45-10:15 pm, students can enjoy late-night snacks and beverages.

Every day in your dining hall, you will find a core set of staple ingredients – cereals, condiments, yogurts, fruit, grill items, salad bar selections and beverages – as well as a rotating hot entrée, soup and pasta selection so that you have a delectable range of choices to make. Every meal includes vegetarian and vegan selections, as well as a balance between healthy options and indulgent choices. But we also have an "if you don't see it, ask" policy. You are welcome to whatever is in our kitchen, even it's not on that day's menu.

Anyone enrolled in the Summer School board program may order a bagged meal/meal-to-go. Please pick up a Meal-to-Go order form in your dining hall at the checkers’ desk. Please note: ordering a Meal-to-Go will prevent you from eating a regular meal in a dining hall at the designated meal period without special permission from a dining hall manager. Bag meals are only available for pick-up when the dining halls are open.

You may place orders (one-time or recurring) up to a week in advance. Please be sure to cancel an order, rather than not pick it up, if your plans have changed.

Harvard Summer School holds many different events over the course of the summer in order to foster community among students.

Typical events include:

  • Game Night
  • Italian Dinner
  • Melon Spotlight
  • Art Night
  • Southern BBQ
  • Pineapple Spotlight
  • Cake Boss

Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS) makes every effort to accommodate the various dietary requirements of our guests. We are committed to stringent food safety measures and to educating our employees on the subject of food allergies and intolerances. HUDS makes every effort to label its food correctly. However, the number of meals served, and the number of items used, makes it impossible to guarantee the accuracy of its labeling.
It is incumbent on every individual with special dietary needs to make those needs known to the dining hall manager. Self-reporting insures that all parties have access to the information necessary to keep you healthy and safe. It is also the responsibility of each student to check with their dining hall managers concerning ingredients if any question exists, and to use our online menu filter to identify potential ingredient concerns.
Food Allergies and Intolerances: Students who are attending Summer School and require dietary accommodations because of a documented disability/allergy must call the Accessibility Services Office (ASO) at 617-998-9640 or email To learn more about how to request an accommodation, please visit
Once you have done so, please also note your dietary needs here:
Other Special Dietary Needs:
Individuals who are vegetarian or vegan do not need to register with the ASO or fill out the HUDS dietary needs form. These foods are available as part of our daily choices. Individuals with religious restrictions may speak with a HUDS manager to help you make delicious choices, safely, and easily.
