First-Year Meal Plans

First-year Blue Jays have the choice of a few meal plans depending on where they will be living. These plans were created to help ease the transition from home to the Hopkins Nest and to allow you to focus on the classroom and community building and not on washing dishes and cooking your own meals. First-year meal plans are created to work best at Fresh Food Café, but can also be accepted at Nolan’s (only open for dinner) located in Charles Commons and the Meals-in-a-Minute (MIM) program at the Charles Street Market.
