Food

  • Hotel: rooms have a refrigerator and Residence Inn offers complimentary hot breakfast in the lobby every morning. Here’s a list of nearby restaurants, of which some deliver.
  • The Fermilab cafeteria in Wilson Hall (map) has a wider breakfast selection cooked to order at reasonable prices. We’ll go to the Fermilab cafeteria for lunch each day: regular menu and weekly menu. Feel free to pack your lunch instead.
  • Building 327 (where we’ll be M-F) has a refrigerator and microwave (map).
  • Remember, you will receive a per diem of $40 per day (partial for your travel days) and there is no need to save your food receipts.
