Welcome to your home away from home.

Moving—whether just across town or to an entirely new state or even country—can be exciting, overwhelming and even a little scary. At Case Western Reserve, we want to make your transition as easy and comfortable as possible, with top-notch dining options and residential communities that will help you feel at home from the start.


With days full of classes, meetings, projects, studying, research and fun, you need to fuel up. At Case Western Reserve, our food service provider, Bon Appetit Management Co., brings restaurant-quality dining to campus.

During meal times, you can enjoy the flavorful options at the two main on-campus dining commons, where:

  • Skilled chefs prepare meals from scratch
  • We use only the freshest, most flavorful ingredients—more than 5 tons per year grown just 10 miles away at the University Farm
  • Food is prepared to order—no frozen pizza dough, no soup from a can, no salsa from a jar
  • Nutritionists are on staff to help accommodate your dietary needs
  • Visual well-being indicators help you identify healthful choices

Our dining commons operate in an all-you-care-to-eat format, and additional on- and off-campus eateries accept student meal plans and/or CaseCash (money loaded onto your CWRU ID card). This autonomy gives you the chance to practice budgeting and making healthy dietary choices—establishing good habits that will follow you well beyond graduation.
