New Haven’s Dining Options

Even though New Haven is a great restaurant city, the Law School also has a dining hall, which serves a variety of meals for breakfast and lunch during the week. The dining hall is also the site for many catered events that are hosted by the Law School. The newly renovated dining hall serves as a convenient meeting place, a study hall, and a great place to pick up a cup of coffee between classes. Students can pay cash or sign up for a declining balance meal plan.

Dining Hall Hours

The Dining Hall will open for the 2016-17 Academic Year on Monday, August 29th.

Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Friday, 8:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
