Freshmen and sophomores are required to have a University dining contract, which includes either 14 or 20 meals per week served in the residential colleges. Students generally dine in their own residential college dining hall, but dining contracts can be used in any of the six college dining halls as well as the kosher kitchen in the Center for Jewish Life. The dining halls provide vegetarian, vegan, and lactose-free entrees, as well as an extensive salad bar, at each meal.

The Frist Campus Center is another popular place to eat. Students can use dining points or "late meals" to buy food at the Frist Food Gallery, which is open until 2:00 a.m.

Freshmen and sophomores can also "meal exchange" with upperclassmen to dine in the eating clubs.  Upperclassmen may opt to purchase a joint meal plan between University dining services and an eating club, as well as pursue many other upperclass dining options.
