Policy Statement

Food Preparation

All students residing in College residences are required to participate in the College dining program. Kitchens located in residential facilities are intended for the use of residents for casual dining purposes. These facilities are offered to enhance the community living experience and are designed for floor events, occasional meals for an individual or group, baking cookies, special events and the occasional snack. These kitchen areas are not intended for a student to use on a daily basis to meet their nutritional requirements.

For reasons of health, sanitation and fire safety, food may be cooked only in the kitchens of College owned or operated residential facilities.

  • Students who use cooking facilities must clean up after themselves.
  • All food must be kept in closed containers, and garbage must be disposed of immediately.
  • Students who violate health and sanitation standards may be liable for any resulting cleaning or pest control costs and may be subject to fines and/or disciplinary action.
