Food Service

Monmouth College and ARAMARK Dining Services take pride in offering you and your guests the best of food in the warm friendly atmosphere of Monmouth College. While our campus facilities are designed primarily to support the College’s educational mission, many groups have found that Monmouth College also serves as an excellent place to come together for meetings, presentations or dinners.

There is a wide variety of menu options for you to choose for your event. With this in mind our staff includes an experienced catering professional who can help design just the right menu for your particular event.

To reserve your facilities, call 309-457-2345.

Contact the food service office at 309-457-2346 with the following information:

  • Name of organization

Forty- eight hours notice required for cancellation of an event.

Late Bookings

Any event booked less than 1 week before the scheduled event will be accommodated as much as possible. Menus may need to be adjusted to allow for items not available on short notice.

We must stress that state and local health codes as well as the regulations of our insurance carrier prohibit the serving of any food or beverage on our premises that are not purchased and provided by ARAMARK. Monmouth College does not allow alcohol to be served on campus. All food served in the Stockdale Student Center must be ordered through ARAMARK. No outside vendors may provide food.

Meal Exchanges

Only Monmouth College students may apply for the Meal Exchange program. Meal Exchanges will only occur during the dinner hour. One meal exchange per night will be permitted on a first come, first serve basis. Meal Exchanges may only occur in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room, Private Dining Room and Tartan Room. Food Service has the right to decline a meal exchange according to their policies, even if the room is available.
