    Over the past three years they have added a Starbucks ON CAMPUS, with 2-3 more starbucks a walking distance from campus. We also have a Qdoba on campus, Subway, McDonalds, a cafe in our North building and Science building, and a plethora of vending machines that take credit cards.

    I live in the Campus Village Apartments on the Auraria Campus. This living option has a cafeteria that is optional to purchase a meal plan for in addition to rent. The food is not the greatest and healthy options are few and far between, but it's edible. When purchasing the meal plan you also receive Flex Cash which can be used at the convenience store within the building that has food, drinks, and some toiletries as well as the pizza place and Einsteins bagels on Campus. Dining on campus is in the student commons building (Tivoli) and there are about 6 or so options for fast food there, (McDonalds, Chinese, Subway) but must be purchased out of pocket.

    Food Trucks every Monday. 5-10 minutes from the heart of Denver where food is unlimited. There are several good options on campus and healthy ones too (Blackboard Eats).

    Food is EVERYWHERE. We have food trucks here almost every week and there are vending machines scattered everywhere on campus. In the Tivoli, there is also a dining area that has Taco Bell, McDonalds, Chinese food, Subway, and more! Definitely one of the best campuses when it comes to food.

    I don't know why, some people complain, but honestly shouldn't. The Tivoli offers a variety of food, as well as there are a couple of food trucks parked throughout the campus. Not to mention, downtown Denver is just several blocks away, specifically the 16th mall, which offers a large variety of restaurants and dining. There are many choices out there, I never grow bored of the food.

    Lots of restaurants to choose from around town. Cafeteria in the university also offers a good variety of food to choose from. I will visit the local business to support small businesses, all the food is delicious.

    There are plenty of options though I wish there were more fresh food and less overwhelming comfort food options. With a ten minute walk to 16th st mall, truly if you plan it out, you can obtain great meals. Coffee options are plentiful on campus.

    Were so used to eating the same foods which most are at this campus and is good because your familiar with what your eating. On Mondays CU Denver had food truck Mondays which were awesome because there was more choices but again not having that variety available all the time is bummer for some.

    I didn't eat on campus, but it was nice being so near to downtown Denver with all its shops and restaurants.

    Personally I am not affiliated, I know there are some sororities/fraternities that may exist, however, they are not very active on this campus.

    There is no greek life offered at CU Denver, so if you are looking for a group that provides a sense of family or community this needs to be found in other ways at this school. The lack of a greek life also adds to the lack of a large social scene at this school.
