Dining and Meals - JKCP @ Villanova University

Are meals included?

  • Yes, if you are a residential student, you will eat three meals per day in the campus dining center with just a few exceptions. One night a week, we'll take an off-campus trip where you will purchase your own meal. On Saturdays, you will purchase your own lunch and dinner during the trip. On Sunday, we provide brunch and dinner, but you could purchase a third meal or snack during your trip.
  • Yes, day students will receive lunch in the dining center. (Some programs, like Golf, will eat their lunch at or near their golf course - we still cover the cost, though.)

What can I expect in the Dining Center? You are given the freedom to make your own choices. There are multiple options available at every meal, including hot, cold, vegetarian and gluten-free choices.

What if I have food allergies or dietary restrictions? We're very experienced in helping families manage these concerns and the staff in the Dining Center are trained to keep you safe! You'll need to share the details in your Health Information Form. In order to make the necessary arrangements, we require this information at least three weeks prior to your start date. 

Is JKCP or Villanova nut-free? No, but we are certainly nut sensitive. We ask all students to avoid bringing foods that contain common allergens onto campus. Please be sure that you are mindful of the signs and food labels which will help you avoid trigger items. If in doubt - SPEAK UP! Your safety is our first priority and we'll do anything we can to help you avoid an incident.

I'm still worried about my allergies and food restrictions, what should I do to make sure all of my concerns will be addressed? We're here for you. Start by emailing the basics to help@jkcp.com so we can connect you with the Program Director and talk through it.
