Residence Dining Halls

There are dining facilities in six of the larger residence halls in Evanston: Sargent, Elder, Foster-Walker Complex, 1835 Hinman, Willard, and Allison. Each of the six residence dining locations features an all-you-can-eat buffet with a wide range of choices. There are 24 meals available each week: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday to Saturday, late-night meals, Monday to Thursday and brunch and dinner on Sunday. Continuous dining is available from breakfast through dinner at Sargent, Foster-Walker Complex and 1835 Hinman.

Sick Trays are available at all meals for students on a meal plan who cannot come to the residence dining halls. The procedure is simple: give your WildCARD to a friend, who shows it to the residence dining hall manager and requests a sick tray to bring back a meal for you.
