Dining Services

The Citadel Dining Services program, managed by Sodexo, is all about fueling both the mind and the body for performance, while simultaneously fueling the need for camaraderie and community.

Within the Mess Hall, students are served a wide variety of fresh, scratch-made recipes, from home-style and low-country favorites, to more global, on-trend flavor profiles. Fresh and wholesome meals are prepared by culinary experts, using locally sourced products wherever possible. The Mess Hall serves 100% sustainably sourced seafood, and ethically sourced meats, poultry, eggs and coffee. A variety of special themed meals take place throughout the academic year to engage the students, introduce them to new international cuisines, and foster a heightened sense of community. Those who prefer alternative proteins can feel confident they are receiving ample nutrition with the dedicated station vegan and vegetarian station.

Retail dining offers cadets, evening and graduate students, and faculty and staff variety, flavor and convenience. Whether it’s a nutrient-packed salad or sandwich at Fresh Kitchen, an iconic Chick-fil-A sandwich on the way to class, or a quiet, hot meal in Bond Café, The Citadel Dining Services offers something for everyone.

Daily menus and nutritionals for the Mess Hall and Bond Café can be found using the free Bite by Sodexo app. Use code Z3NF5, or use the geolocator. They are also found on the mobile-friendly website,
