    The catering is always the same boring sandwiches. They should change it up! Strawberry square is right next to the school which has lots of great choices. The Taco stand is awesome!

    Since HU is connected to Strawberry square, they don't have a cafe. However, don't be fooled. the food court at Strawberry Square is amazing!

    This university is attached to a building filled with businesses known as Strawberry Square. Because there is a direct entrance to the university from Strawberry Square, the university has opted to use the food court of Strawberry Square as its dining option. There is essentially no dining plan at this university, which can be a pain for students who rely on their financial aid to cover a comprehensive package of tuition, books, housing, and meals. Put quite plainly- students at this university are each individually responsible for all of their meals. Some of the vendors in the food court do offer small discounts to university students, but you can expect to shell out about 10-15$ a day on food if you don't have access to a car to go grocery shopping. (There is no decent grocery store within walkable distance to the campus.)

    There are numerous restaurants and pizza shops along the street. Also, the school connects to Strawberry Square where students can purchase Starbucks, McDonalds, Subway, and Chinese food. The University does not have a cafeteria or meal plan due to the closeness to Strawberry Square.
