Initiatives

Dining services at Northeastern are managed by Chartwells, a division of Compass Group USA, a worldwide leader in higher education dining services. We work closely with the University’s administration, Food Advisory Board, and students to provide a variety of nutritious menu options, personalized service, and exceptional dining experiences.


​We envision the future of food service to be a holistic experience where our guests and clients find it easy to live well and thrive. 

We create community by optimizing existing spaces and transforming them to be multi-functional spaces that are used throughout the day, providing our guests with social spaces and collaborative areas that create engagement and entertainment. We leverage ​technology in our business to help guests take ownership of their health and lifestyle decisions. We recognize that food is fuel, which is why we work so hard to incorporate more whole grains, fruits and vegetables into our meals. We connect our guests to our food by telling the story of where it comes from and about the people behind it. We provide a strong story by establishing partnerships with companies that align with our sustainable and environmental initiatives.
