Dining Halls

The Globe

Located in the Mason Global Center, The Globe is a resident dining hall which is open 365 days per year. Situated on the bottom level of the residence hall for students participating in the INTO Mason program, The Globe offers food that will broaden pallets and appreciation for international cuisines by exposing the university community to worldly flavors. The Globe Chefs and culinary staff use traditional recipes and showcase the origins of food at special "Around the Globe" events. By partnering with INTO Mason and other on-campus groups, the Globe dining hall introduces customers to a cultural experience that starts with food.

SMSC Front Royal Commons

The Commons Dining facility, located at the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation in Front Royal, VA, features a grill, flatbread pizza station, salad bar, daily entrée, and Dessert Station. Given the small size of this location, students and faculty create personal connections with the dining staff, and the chef works closely with students to provide a delicious, residential culinary experience. What the Commons lacks in size, it makes up for in personalized dining and attention to each customer’s individual needs. Chefs have the capacity to sauté to order, customize pho bowls, or personalize flatbread pizzas. With a clientele that is particularly focused on sustainability and animal welfare, we offer a robust variety of vegetarian and vegan offerings such as rustic Portobello mushroom ciabatta sandwiches, whole wheat penne pesto pasta with vegetable cacciatore, or couscous with Marine Stewardship Council certified lemon Chile tilapia. Guests can enjoy the expansive view through large windows, or they may take their meal outside on the patio.
