    There's a central building most locals ignore in the center of campus that has a Sbarro, Burger King, Church's and Pollo Tropical. Off-campus you might find more alternatives such as Quizno's, Pasta Mobile, a Mexican Restaurant, a Natural/Organic cart, etc. Also, some departments do have their own cafes that sell sandwiches, soups, salads and local cuisine.

    Given that the University of Puerto Rico is located in the heart of Rio Piedras, there are many places for each particular taste. Students can go and enjoy in different dining places such as: puertorican food, italian food, chinese food, sushi, organic food, cafeterias and others. Most of these places are located inside the campus and are very cheap, what is beneficial for the students.
