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. Students are served meals that are not only healthy and delicious, but are also prepared in a manner that contributes to the conservation of our ecosystem.
As part of Lawrenceville’s strategic plan, Tsai Field House is currently under construction. Tsai Commons, the dining portion of the building, opened in fall 2022 and is a vibrant gathering space. Tsai Commons reinforces the idea of total health and wellbeing - drawing connections between physical fitness, healthy eating habits, socialization, and community inclusion. Read more here.
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.
