This summer, WPI is undergoing some exciting culinary changes. Morgan Dining Hall is currently under renovation, and when complete will provide some new and unique food options.
The campers who usually dine in Morgan Hall will now eat in the Campus Center Lower Level Food Court.
In place of Morgan Hall, Dining Services will open the Goat’s Head Restaurant, the Library Café, and Higgins House for faculty and staff. These establishments will be run by Chartwells, and be available from July 9 through Aug. 9 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The ongoing renovations at Morgan will reconfigure the dining space and add 50 more seats, for a total of 530, said Janet Richardson, vice president of student affairs and campus life. “It will be more user friendly,” she said. “It used to have larger tables, for six to eight students, and it was not very inviting for students going in to eat alone. Now, they have the option of sitting at stools with high counters. Someone can come in and have lunch at a counter and watch TV, and not feel like they’re on display. There will also be more tables for four.”
Diners will still be able to enjoy the Summer Breeze Concert Series, as performers will be visiting the Goat’s Head Restaurant and Higgins House lawn.
