Dining on Campus

College students are known to be hungry people. At Elizabethtown College, you'll eat well. Our campus is home to four dining venues. The Marketplace is the main dining location, while the Jay's Nest offers grab-and-go foods and convenience items. The Blue Bean offers desserts (yes, carrot cake!), coffee, tea and smoothies. The Jay Truck offers after-hours options for students on the weekend.

Our catering staff provides meals for special campus events, from blue cupcakes at Convocation to sit-down dinners at formal events.

At Elizabethtown College, you can choose from several meal plan options. Commuters, faculty and staff can choose to purchase Jay Bucks -- on campus dining dollars. Visitors to the College can purchase single meals.
