University adds new daily meal times

Andrew Hudson   ||   Feb 04, 2015  ||   

The campus card office at Brandeis University amended its dining period schedule, offering students new hours to access food at campus dining facilities. The university's old policy provided for three meal periods each day, but the new policy now offers five dining windows having added "continental breakfast" and "limited lunch" windows.

According to a report from Brandeis University's student newspaper, The Justice, the university's campus card office sent an email to students explaining that the decision to increase the meal periods was made to allow students additional flexibility in accessing their daily meals.

According to the email, the added dining times were the result of student feedback and consultation with the university's food service provider, Sodexo which partnered with Brandeis in the fall of 2013.

Per the university's card office website, students were previously offered the standard 3 meal periods each day -- breakfast, lunch and dinner. The university had received complaints about this structure, giving rise to the new meal time schedule. The university will keep its existing policy of only one allotting one meal during each meal window, only now the day is divided into 5 meal periods.

The 5 meal periods:

  • Breakfast: 7:00 am - 9:59 am
  • Continental Breakfast: 10:00 am - 10:59 am
  • Lunch: 11:00 am - 1:59 pm
  • Limited Lunch 2:00 pm - 4:59 pm
  • Dinner: 5:00 pm to close
