At Bryn Athyn College, we strive to offer a variety of dining options that are delicious, nutritious, and well-balanced. Our on-campus dining is provided by Sodexho in two facilities. On weekdays, meals are served in the Brickman Center for Student Life and Admissions, in the center of campus. On weekends, meals are provided in the Dining Hall.Students living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan, and students living off campus are welcome to purchase meal plans as well.
Students with special dietary needs due to diagnosed medical conditions or other special needs should contact Sodexho Manager, Jimmy Fekelman at 267-502-2645 to discuss accommodations.
In between meals, College Grounds, our campus coffee shop provides a popular location for grabbing snacks and coffee. Located in the Swedenborg Library, College Grounds provides space for students and faculty to connect, eat, and drink, offering sandwiches, sweets, and a host of hot and cold beverages.

The 28,000 square foot Theodore and Sally Brickman Center for Student Life and Admissions serves as an entrance and welcome center for the College. With a great hall, dining and kitchen facilities, offices for admissions and financial aid, the Alumni Association office, the President’s Office, and ample space for studying and student life activities, the Brickman Center serves as a central location for student life and information at the College.
The Dining Hall underwent complete reconstruction last year. It now seats over 200 students in a light and cozy setting. Large windows and light wood beams provide an airy feel, while large stone fireplaces enrich the comfortable, friendly atmosphere. In addition to the two large dining areas, there is a large patio and small upstairs meeting room.
For long days or early mornings, most Bryn Athyn students find some part of their day to visit the College Grounds Café, centrally located in the Swedenborg Library. Its debatable whether the café is better suited to studying or socializing, but with the full line of Starbucks drinks served it can be assured that College Grounds is buzzing just a little more than any other spot on campus.
