Food is an important part of day-to-day life at Lawrenceville. One thing that makes Lawrenceville unique is our approach to Dining; the whole community eats at the same time - removing scheduling conflicts and ensuring the opportunity to bring everyone together for positive interaction. It's not just about refueling, but also sharing stories about our days, talking through problems, or just sitting down to relax and enjoy each other's company.
Dining Services is a key element of the Initiative. During the past two years, students have been served meals that are not only healthy and delicious, but are also prepared in a manner that contributes to the conservation of our ecosystem.
Second-, Third-, and Fourth-Form students eat in the Irwin Dining Center, where each residential House has its own dining area. This community space with large windows and hexagonal pods has an airy, relaxing feel and occupies the same building as the school store and post office.
The Fifth Form eats in the Abbott Dining Room of the Upper House. This beautiful, open space - decorated with traditional Lawrenceville touches like House flags and memorabilia - was remodeled in 2018 and includes meeting rooms and an outdoor seating area.
The Bath House is a small cafe that is accessible to the community all day. A lovely glass seating area, featuring stained glass windows with the School’s House flags, and an outdoor patio are often used for studying, meetings, performances, and other community events.
