  • Dorms are located in two buildings: Lawrence and Thayer. Lawrence is the main building of the school, therefore most of your classes will be only an elevator ride away! Those…

    The food is a little pricey but what university food isn't? They have buses to take people shopping at local grocery stores.

    The meal plans are very expensive. But most food tastes all right, but not fantastic.

    Point Park University has two on campus dining experiences. One is the cafe that offers a variety of different foods (hot and cold), fountain drinks, bottled drinks, ect until midnight every night. The other option is the dining room which has a buffet style assortment of food that students can go and eat for a rather low price. However, if you are not fond of on campus food, there are many other eateries in the Downtown area all within walking distance. Whether it is a Subway on the corner or Pittsburghs Primanti Brother's in Market Square there are many options!

    Food and dining here is far from ideal. They do not offer many convent hours for eating or healthy options. There is also not many options for different types of food, it is usually all the same most days.

    The food is great, but its basically the same thing everyday, which is great if you like regularity in your life, they try to switch it up sometimes by having themed days like Wing Wednesday which is one of my favourites

    The dining hall is pretty good and the Point Cafe offers some good options, and there is market square nearby that has a lot of restaurants but they don't take meal plan points and the selection is still limited compared to other campuses I've visited.

    The department running the dining experience with working with the student body to provide nutritious options as well as options to accommodate different tastes. Its a work in progress.

    The food can get kind of old when on certain days they have the same thing, but the food is typically pretty good and yummy.

    There is no greek life. But Point Park is surrounded by Pitt and CMU and during your second year you can pledge at either school.
