Dining Hall Meals
On a daily basis, our Hobson Hall Catering staff provide support to academic activities to both students and staff by providing quality nutritional well-balanced meals in a safe, hygienic and hospitable environment.
Rhodes University uses a computerized Meal Booking System that allows each student to choose the meals that they want and to select the diet they prefer. All Dining Halls on campus provide meals from the same menu.
