Commons is located between the dorms and academic buildings on campus. It is the home to the Commons Dining Hall, the Campus Store, Johnny's and the Fish House.


Located in the center of campus, the Commons Dining Hall is your best bet for a great breakfast to start off your day or a full meal between classes. Commons offers features such as Piazza, fresh sandwiches and sack lunches through Uppercrust, burritos and taco soup from the Taqueria, and specialty options like pasta bar, omelet bar and buffalo wings at the Flip-Side.

Campus Store

Calvin's Campus Store is a great place to find all your Calvin merchandise needs. It also sells the textbooks needed for classes along with office supplies. You can even find basic necessities like toothpaste, headphones and stamps at the store.


Johnny's Café offers freshly made breakfast sandwiches, baked goods and a cereal bar. At lunch, the menu features daily specials, our all-American grill, homemade soups, grab-n-go sandwiches and salads, and an array of beverages and snacks. Throughout the year Johnny's offers periodic events to keep things lively.

Take advantage of our later hours and feed your needs morning, noon or night, without the bother of leaving campus! Dine in the cafe at one of several tables, or take your meal to go.

The Fish House

The Fish House features fresh fair trade coffee, teas, breakfast pastries and specialty coffees. The atmosphere is a comfortable place to study, meet or enjoy a cup of java.
