Colgate boasts a healthy and sustainability-conscious dining program that provides a wide range of meal choices for students.

Colgate's dining facilities are designed to provide students with comfortable places to dine with friends and faculty. From Frank Dining Hall to a cozy pub and a modern café, there's always a place to relax and enjoy a meal.

Frank Dining Hall

The Curtiss E. Frank Dining Hall is the dynamic, primary dining facility on campus. Find Frank on the campus map.

Frank Dining Hall offers students made-to-order grill options, vegan and vegetarian selections, Pure Eats - our allergen-friendly zone, house-made pastas and pizzas, and more. This year, we’re excited to introduce two new concepts: Paper Lantern, a cook-to-order Asian station with a daily rotating menu including new flavors and old favorites such as Korean BBQ, dumplings, fried rice, ramen, and pho, and La Mesa, a West Coast Mexican concept that will include bowls, burritos, tacos, and quesadillas.

If you're looking for a cup of coffee or tea, we now encourage the use of reusable mugs, as we increase our sustainability efforts. Download the Boost mobile ordering app in the App Store or Google Play
