    No dorms so no large cafeteria. A couple on campus places to fix up convenience food but there are at least 20 places to get food within a 4-5 minute walk.

    Within the school in the student center, there is a convenient market that sells everything from school supplies to food. Additionally there are so many restaurants less than half a mile from the school where you can dine at your convenience.

    Multiple places to dine while on campus at affordable prices, and for date nights the perfect place is Turps bar and grill.

    There are plenty of food places around campus within walking distance. Some take campus cash that can be purchased at the school or converted from the bookstore credit.

    There isn't a food plan at UB, but you can sign one up with MICA if you really want, though if living near campus there are plenty of food places to try. Also, in the Varsity you will have your own kitchen.

    The best part of UB's social aspect is also a pro and a con. There are tons of food diners surrounding the university. The con is that these food diners take your money. It's hard to save surrounded by such delicious eateries. I recommend you stay away from eating out every day unless you have the money. It will leave a large hole in your pocket.

    The food around the campus is domestic and exotic in the way that the cuisine ventures out to all customers. If you want a little of Italy or Greece, or even Asian, Midtown has it all here!
