    There are no dining centers, only cafes where they have vending machines and tables to sit at.

    Within every single HCC campus, there is one cafeteria area, where students can sit and work on their classes' assignments or simply converse with their acquaintances. There are several vending machines, where students can spare a few quarters for various snacks and drinks. The environment is quite comfortable and complacent to stay with different architectural designs. HCC campuses know how to locate themselves within fast food restaurants, where students can simply go out and purchase food without having to travel miles away from the campuses.

    There are cafes on every HCC campus that I visited, along with plenty of restaurants near-by, especially in downtown Houston. After hours of studying, food availability is a must. Cafe is not gourmet or anything, but it fills you up.

    They've got a bookstore and a deli that have a wide array of food options. You'll never go hungry or get bored of the food, as there is always plenty to choose from.

    This is definitely not a social butterfly school, everyone is focused to meeting their goals and transferring to the universities.
