Overview & Menus
Welcome to Dickinson College Dining Services Catering. Our services are available to the entire College and local community. Catering Services welcomes your patronage and wishes to be of service to you. We recommend that you review our Catering Guidelines for helpful information and to ensure a successful event.
Dining Services is periodically unavailable to fulfill orders due to other scheduled engagements and unforeseen circumstances. The department keeps an updated calendar (below) with unavailable dates and times as a convenience to those wishing to plan events.
If your event will be held on campus, it is necessary to first reserve a room with the Office of Conferences and Special Events (717-245-1900) - CASE. It is important to book your event well in advance to guarantee the availability of space and Dining Services. Room setup requests are handled by CASE.
Please plan for an alternate space if you schedule an event in a building with an elevator or for outdoor events. If elevator service is unavailable we are unable to provide service due to the risk to our employees. Events canceled due to weather and not planned with a "rain location" cannot be refunded or rescheduled without additional charges.
