The Grubhub food ordering app will be available for students, faculty and staff to pre-order meals at on-campus dining locations with the exception of Dunkin’, which has its own app. Grubhub is loaded with students’ meal plan details, and students can spend their Falcon Funds and discretionary funds on campus using the Grubhub app. It allows students to place a pre-order in whichever dining location they choose, so the food is made to order and ready for pick-up when they arrive, avoiding wait times and lines. No tipping will be required when Grubhub is used. Read these instructions to download the Grubhub app.
 
 
Using the Grubhub app will allow diners to customize their meal orders and enjoy a quick and easy ordering experience. Customized orders must be placed through Grubhub at the following locations:
 
  • Einstein Bros. Bagels
  • Currito
  • Starbucks Express 
  • Harry's
  • The Lower Cafe (Hissho Sushi and Simply to Go will have limited grab and go options)
  • Use a VPN to gain access and download.  
  • Set up a second Apple Account to download the app
  • Update location services in the iTunes Store.  In order to do this all subscriptions need to cancelled and balances need to spent.   
Food at the 921 and other on-campus locations will be served in disposable recyclable or compostable containers, and students, faculty and staff will be able to sit in most dining locations. 
 
To promote distancing, the dining locations will have fewer seats, and seating may be created in other locations throughout campus to accommodate overflow. Bentley dining locations comply with guidance from the state of Massachusetts that requires at least 6 feet between tables and no more than six people at a table. Dining locations will look different with directional arrows and floor markings reinforcing distancing. Touchless entry will be added to the 921 and Google Pay and Apple Pay have been added across campus. 
 
All employees of Sodexo, our food service provider, are required to follow the company's COVID-19 safety measures, which include wearing face coverings and self-monitoring for symptoms.
 
Most to-go containers on campus will be compostable, with the rest recyclable. 
 
The 921 
Bentley's main dining hall, the 921, has been reconfigured to reduce on-site seating and provide meals in to-go containers. Updated safety measures include: 
  • Self-swipe entrance

  • Plexiglass barriers installed 
  • Expanded outdoor seating options
  • Replacement of self-service, unattended buffets, topping bars, drink stations and other communal serving areas

Your Meal Plan (meal swipes and Discretionary Dollars) are valid for the current semester. Meal Plans cannot be used during Thanksgiving, Semester and Spring breaks.

If you find that your Meal Plan doesn't suit your dining needs on campus you are able to upgrade your plan at any point in time during the trimester. Should you choose to lower your meal plan you have 2 weeks after the start of the trimester. Any changes made after these dates must be completed in person at the Residential Center. 

Discretionary Dollars are included with the purchase of your Meal Plan. They may only be used to purchase food at any of our dining locations on campus. Falcon Funds are monies that you personally add to your Falcon Fund account. They can be used on campus like a debit card. Falcon Funds are accepted at all dining locations, the bookstore, and student information desk.

Students: Login to Workday, click Academics, select Falcon Funds in Quick Links. From there you can add funds and edit your account. 

To make a Falcon Funds deposit by mail, send a check made payable to Bentley University and including a Bentley ID number to:

Meal Trades will be used to purchase (1) entree, (1) side and (1) drink designated at all retail locations except Einstein Bros. Bagels and Starbucks Express. Meal Trades are per week. Please note, the use of a Meal Trade subtracts from your block plan (1 Meal Trade = 1 Block).
Block Plans provide a specific number of meals to use each trimester at the 921 Dining Hall or through Meal Trades, if applicable. Unused meals do not roll over and are forfeited at the end of the trimester.
