Where can I grab a coffee or quick meal?

  • The UMass Dining app makes it easy to access campus dining locations with daily menus, operating hours, and real-time traffic reports. Faculty can buy a meal plan or pay with cash or credit and eat in any of the dining locations. Marriott Meals is a student-run restaurant in the Campus Center, managed by students who are studying hospitality management through the Isenberg School of Management.
  • The Procrastination Station in the ground floor of the library, is a great place for coffee and a treat. (lunch too!)

Where can I go to refresh and reset?

  • The Durfee Conservatory is a greenhouse complex that features a bonsai collection, orchid collection, succulents, and tropical plants that surround a 4,000 gallon fish pond! 
  • You can visit the Fine Arts Center, which offers arts programming and is home to the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
  • The Faculty Commons on the 26th floor in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library is a great place to get work done besides your office.
