Dining

All on-campus residents must sign up for a Case Western Reserve University meal plan (CaseCash) to take meals in CWRU dining halls and cafeterias. If you live off campus, you also may choose to sign up for a meal plan. 

Leutner Commons

Leutner Commons is a dining hall on the Case Western Reserve University campus. Click here to see the newly designed space.

Features:

  • Flexible seating configurations from intimate seating at small tables or booths to large group gatherings of 16 or more
  • A new study area with single or group seating for 76 students off the main dining area
  • New front entrance and atrium equipped with two electronic boards for campus and food service information
  • Wireless connections throughout the premise
  • First-floor restrooms
  • Sustainable building using environmentally friendly materials, insulation and reuse of existing materials
  • The Taqueria, which features authentic food from different regions of Mexico. Items include Conchinita Pibil (pork braised with achiote and citrus), albondigas (Mexican Meatballs), moles, caldos (soups) and a variety of taco preparations for both meat-lovers and vegetarians.
  • Two sauté stations with a total of 20 gas burners that can feature risottos, pastas, stir-fry dishes, mussels cooked to order, Asian noodle bowls, customized soup preparations, and other innovative dishes that Bon Appetit chefs create daily.
  • A 15-foot one-of-a-kind custom ice-less ‘cold top’ that changes the way salad and deli stations are presented. A heated ‘Eurocase’ displays home-style comfort foods, simply prepared vegetables, carved meats, slow smoked barbecue items, and other regional and ethnic specialties

Hours of operation

  • Monday - Friday: 7am-2pm and 5-8pm
  • Saturday - Sunday: 10:30am-8pm

Dining rates 

Meal plan rates for the 2014-15 school year are:

  • 100 Block Meal Plan with $300 CaseCash: $2,000 per semester, $4,000 per year
  • 200 Block Meal Plan with $200 CaseCash: $3,008 per semester, $6,016 per year
  • CaseCash only meal plan: $2000 per semester, $4,000 per year

Meal plans can be changed during the first week of a semester. After this time, changes cannot be made until the following semester. Meal plan changes can be made by filling out a form in the Student Life and Housing office located in the JMC.

CIA identification card

Your CIA identification card is a very powerful tool. You are required to carry it at all times for identification in the academic buildings. It also has many other uses. For instance, if you live in the residence hall, it serves as your outside door key. If you want a meal plan, it is your food ticket.

Block meal plan

Block Meal Plans include a set number of meals which can be used at your convenience throughout the semester. The cashier at the ‘all you care to eat’ Dining Commons will ‘swipe’ your CaseOneCard through a register, which will automatically deduct one meal from your meal plan account. Short on time? You can also use a meal swipe to get a grab-n-go lunch from the “Grab-it” facility in Sears or the "Bag-It" in the Thwing atrium.

CaseCash 

CWRU’s CaseOneCard, or CaseCash, is an option that allows you to add money from an existing checking account to your ID. It also is available with any meal plan in $100, $200, or $300 per semester denominations. CaseCash can be used at retail dining locations and retail shops in the University Circle area. In addition, it can be used like cash at the University bookstore, snack shops, and selected copy, vending, and laundry machines. Dollars can be added with a credit card at any time through the CaseCash website or by using cash-at-value transfer stations on campus.
