Armstrong Dining Hall

Bringing the Community Together

Armstrong Dining Hall, designed by Graham Gund ’59, opened at the beginning of the 2017-2018 academic year. The three-level, 36,000-square-foot facility has two dining rooms and allows the entire school community to participate in family-style lunches four days a week. Gund Dining Room seats 480 people at 60 round tables with eight to a table. For family-style lunch, students are assigned to a faculty table for a week. Students have a chance to interact with a wide variety of students and faculty members. The room is divided in to three areas, giving it a sense of intimacy for dining conversations, yet the ability for everyone to see speakers and audiovisual presentations.

Stunning wood trusses reach to a clearstory that brings abundant light in from the outside. A floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace covered in porcelain tile serves as a centerpiece, while custom-made chandeliers offer dramatic lighting. Just off the main dining room is the Durham Terrace that seats 45 people and offers beautiful vistas of the Farmington River Valley. Adams Dining Room seats 120 people at 15 rectangular tables and can be used for meetings and special events. Just off this dining room is the Ekholm Terrace, which include a fire pit.

The kitchen features all new energy-efficient equipment and two separate grill areas, as well as salad bars, myriad beverage choices, Panini makers and other offerings. FLIK Independent School Dining provides wholesome, nutritious meals that fuel the minds and bodies of the Westminster community. The company is committed to providing fresh meals that support local and sustainable agricultural practices.
