The mission of Northwestern Dining is to educate students, engage the community, and enrich the Northwestern experience by offering one of the most unique and pioneering campus meal programs in the nation.

Allison Dining Hall

Allison Dining Hall is open seven days a week and is located on South Campus. The dining room, one of the largest on campus, creates an inviting atmosphere where students can enjoy a healthy meal while the bright sunlight shines through the glass-ceiling.

Allison offers freshly grilled sandwiches, a salad bar with a wide selection of toppings and dressings, an international bar, classic favorites like pizza, salad, and pasta. Vegetarian and vegan options are available for every meal.  Halal meats are available at the grill on request.

Kosher Station

Under the supervision of Rabbi Joseph Assayag, Allison is proud to offer a completely Kosher station and Kosher meals Sunday through Thursday for both lunch and dinner and Friday for lunch. We offer Kosher soups, salads, sides, and entrees.

Allison, Elder, and Hinman Halls will close on Friday, September 22nd at 1:45 pm. Please join us at 4:00 pm for a BBQ in Deering Meadow (located on the south-east corner of the intersection of Foster and Sheridan).

In observance of the Jewish New Year the Kosher station will be closing after lunch on Wednesday, September 20th. It will reopen after the Sabbath for Sunday brunch on September 24th.
