Dining Services

Romano Dining Hall

Blair students eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Romano Dining Hall, which features an abundance of healthy options, including a robust salad bar, hot, homestyle entrees, homemade soups and sauces, and a wide range of deli choices and freshly baked breads and desserts.

Breakfast, lunch and some evening meals are served buffet-style; on other weeknights, students and faculty families sit down together at family-style dinners, an experience that fosters a strong sense of community and strengthens relationships across campus. Student leaders assist the faculty members at the head of their table with serving, clearing and engaging with their classmates during these meals.

The dining hall is open for breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. from Monday through Saturday and brunch is served on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Lunch hours vary by day: On Mondays through Fridays, lunch is served from 11:10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on Saturdays, lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 12:35 p.m.

The dining hall typically serves a buffet dinner on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6 to 7 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Family-style dinners usually take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:15 to 7 p.m.

Black Canteen

Students can also eat in The Black Canteen, better known on campus as “the Can.” Located in Hardwick Hall’s Blair Commons, the Can is a popular place to socialize, study and relax between classes. Each week, the Can offers weekly specials, in addition to regular menu items, and the community regularly gathers there to watch major sporting events and political debates.

The Can is open from 8:45 to 11:30 a.m., 1 to 5:30 p.m. and 7 to 10:30 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays; from 8 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 11:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 1 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 10:30 p.m. on Sundays.
