Kosher Dining

Hundreds of Princeton students take advantage of our popular dining hall every day. Students of all backgrounds, Jewish and non-Jewish, eat here because the food is great (our chocolate chip cookies are favorites), because there's a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and because we are located in the heart of campus. Whether students are between classes or on their way back to their residential college, they will often choose to eat here for lunch or dinner. 

We provide twenty meals a week and anyone on the Princeton meal plan can eat here. Our University-run dining facility is supervised by the Orthodox Union (OU). Princeton University prioritizes accommodating religious observance and food allergies in a way that doesn't limit students from interacting with the entire community. You can feel that sentiment when you are enjoying a delicious meal with friends at the CJL dining hall.
