regents_MG_9238_fin-001Meals are available in the dining hall at breakfast time (8.30am-9.30am), lunchtime (12.30pm-1.30pm) and dinner time (6.30pm-7.30pm Mon-Thurs, 7pm Fri) on Mondays through Fridays in term. 

Most meals are cafeteria style and students only pay for what they eat.  

Friday’s evening meal is Formal Hall, a waiter-served three course meal. Students and staff wear gowns and dress more formally, and students may bring their own wine to the tables. Twice a term, there are Guest Nights. Other special occasions include the Advent Dinner, the Finalists’ Dinner and the Recognition Formal.
