International undergraduate students can reside in one of five residence halls or three language houses (French, German or Spanish). Upperclassmen have the option of living in shared apartments off-campus. International students who will not be traveling home during school vacations and breaks can arrange for on-campus housing during those times.
Meals are provided in the Coblentz dining hall for all residential students, and students may visit the Hood College Blazer snack bar, located in Whitaker Commons. At each meal, Dining Services provides a meat-based entree, a vegetarian entree and a vegan entree (no meat, dairy or eggs). In addition, hot soups, a salad bar, and desserts are available for lunch and dinner. Students with special dietary restrictions may make arrangements with the dining hall manager to suit their particular needs.
For students who are interested in preparing their own meals, each residence hall has a kitchen available to all students living in the hall.
Students purchase an "unlimited" meal plan as part of their residence costs (19 meals per week). This plan allows them to eat three times a day on weekdays and twice each day on Saturday and Sunday. Students can choose to eat as much as they desire. Students may also purchase a 15 meals/week plan or a 10 meals/week plan. Students should purchase the meal plan that best fits their needs. Information about the meal plans can be found here: http://hood.campusdish.com/.
