Our service goes well-beyond your daily meals! We strive to host regular events and specials in the dining hall, as well as partner with Norwich clubs and offices to showcase their work. Some examples from the past year include our Celebration of Nations international feast, DIY sushi rolling, and Wicked Wing hot wings bar.

Events in Wise Dining Hall


Our team makes every possible effort to accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions. MyZone is our campus pantry that is free of gluten, as well as tree nuts and peanuts and we also have a dedicated vegetarian station. While we don’t have a registered dietician on campus, we can connect you with one at a campus partner.


BITE is an easy-to-use app packed with daily menu and nutritional information from our dining hall. This app is available to use on any Android or Apple device on the Norwich campus.

BITE compiles all the daily menus and provides a complete nutritional profile on each food item being served. Users can even connect their Fitbit and myfitnesspal accounts to the BITE app to log in their meal choices and gauge their fitness progress. This app is unlike anything else in the food industry and provides a way for students to eat healthy at our food service locations.
