    UWT has little options for food and dining on campus. There is one small store on campus with a wide variety of snacks, but no options for dining. However, UWT is in the heart of downtown Tacoma with plenty of options for dining off campus. Jimmy John's, Subway, Abella's Pizzeria, Senergo, and Starbucks are a few options for meals that are less than a 5 minute walk down Pacific Ave.

    There's a good amount food located on campus as well as the diversity of food. The building are also connected so if it's raining you can take the building route to get to your food.

    There is a cafe and a Subway, and other than that I haven't really explored other options. The Melting Pot and The Rock Wood Fired Pizza are nearby as well.

    The restaurants have a variety of foods to pick from. There aren't too many fast food joints which is great because that equals less junk put into your system. But, when you are in a hurry there's always somewhere to go.

    most of the food near by are restaurants. The plus is there are quite a few within walking distance from the the campus as well as right in the heart of campus. The negative is most of them are sit down restaurants where you need time to order and dine.

    There is no greek life at UWT, but living in the Court 17 apartments gives the campus a more authentic college feel and students won't be disappointed.

    There is no Greek Life at UW - Tacoma. So if you are looking for that, this is probably not the school for you. With that being said, UW - Tacoma is always growing and expanding. If there is a want and need from students, the faculty will listen! It's never to late too start the Greek Life on campus.
