About Chartwells

Chartwells Dining Services is proud to be the exclusive food and catering provider at Hudson Valley Community College since June 1, 2004. We work closely with the Faculty Student Association (FSA) to ensure the highest levels of quality and customer service.

Chartwells is a division of Compass Group North America, a leading contract food service company with operations throughout the United States and Canada. To learn more about Chartwells, please visit

Chartwells is not only a campus vendor. The company is also a partner with the college. Throughout the year, Chartwells gives back to Hudson Valley by helping to fund the FSA Meal Plan Awards and supporting various Student Senate activities.

We also remains committed to helping students save money. Students may add meal plan funds to their Hudson Valley identification cards and use them in place of cash at any Chartwells location on campus. Doing so automatically saves the 8 percent tax on every purchase; however, students must sign up to take advantage of these significant savings! Simply stop by the FSA Business Office or call (518) 629-7518.

Chartwells is ready to receive comments and answer your questions. Know that your input helps us serve you more effectively! Consider joining the Food Service Committee to have your opinions and suggestions heard. Meetings are generally held once a month. Stay tuned for announcements during the academic year.

Look for updates that will highlight specials, promotions and menu changes.

Thanks for making Chartwells part of your Hudson Valley experience!
