Why were changes made?

Our goal is to improve the campus dining experience for our students, faculty, and staff. Whether you purchase your meals on campus on a regular basis or occasionally grab a snack before class, we want to be sure what you’re getting is fresh, tasty, and affordable.

Campus food sales have been down in recent years, and we’d like to turn that around by offering campus food that is as good as what you can get at local restaurants and priced competitively, too.

We’ve brought in two well-known food service providers with proven track records, and we’re confident they will deliver food you’ll love.

Who do I contact for catering for a meeting or event?

NECC has contracted with NexDine and Salvatore’s Restaurants to provide catering services on the Haverhill and Lawrence Campuses. Additional details can be found on our Catering Services page.
