Food

Vivien talks about Brown Hall, where boarding students eatI like that if you want to be healthy, Brown Hall has a lot of options. You can get so many fruits and yogurts and salads, and there's also a hot meal. Having so many choices, there’s always something to eat.

Food, Glorious Food

You don’t need us to tell you that good food is important. And when you’re busy with school and your extracurricular activities, the last thing you’ll want to think about is “What’s for dinner?” Don’t worry – we have that covered with a nutritious, balanced diet.

As a boarding student, you will be served three balanced meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks during the day. On Sundays, boarders get a special brunch (a late breakfast/early lunch). All meals are served in Brown Hall, the on-campus dining hall, which is just steps from your boarding house.

What to choose?

At SMUS we provide you with a lot of options at every meal. Whether you’re hungry for a fresh-made hot dish, or you just want a soup and salad from the salad bar, you know you’ll always get a healthy and filling meal.

The menu changes every day and you’ll get an opportunity to experience cuisine from other countries during regular theme nights. You can also suggest your favourite food to our chefs, or join the Boarding Food Committee, and have a say about what should be on the menu.

And while healthy eating is a big priority, we know how satisfying it is to sometimes nourish your soul with a tasty treat (like our popular Pizza Thursdays!)

Special diets

Celiac? Lactose intolerant? Allergic to certain foods? Don’t worry – we will accommodate your needs.

Every meal has at least one vegetarian option, and if you have special dietary requirements or food allergies, let our chefs know in advance and they will prepare something especially for you.

Snacks!

You’ll have access to snacks in Brown Hall during recess and in the evening. There’s also a tuck shop where you can pick up additional food-on-the-go. You can use the kitchen facilities in your boarding house to store and prepare light snacks, like popcorn or a grilled cheese sandwich. Or why not grab a coffee at our open-until-late student-run campus coffee shop: “the Daily Grind”.

There are also coffee shops, convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance to the school, so you can always venture out to find something to satisfy your cravings.
