You can purchase individual meals at the dining hall at Haverford College Dining Center (the DC)

During the 2024 Gathering everyone who has on-campus housing must have a meal plan. However, you may choose to buy a two-meal plan and then choose to occasionally buy breakfast in the dining center, or you may be staying off campus and choose not to have a meal plan. Learn more about meals here.

The Gathering will have a number of golf carts to help people with mobility problems move around the campus. Golf Cart Central will dispatch carts by cell phone when people call us, by prearrangement, and run regular routes throughout campus.

Look for the Golf Cart Central phone number in your packet when you Check-In at the Gathering. Golf Cart Central will be in the Werner University Center.
