What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
Sometimes food and dining can become monotonous. The dining company, Sodexo, offers a wide variety of different foods and meal specials throughout the year. The thing that becomes so monotonous is that the specials and varieties do not change. I know what I'm saying may be a bit confusing but once you come here you'll understand. Monotony aside, there are not many places where you can get a top notch meal on a campus. Oh yeah we also have something called the Centrum where you can get your food on-the-go if you don't have the time in between classes or you're running late to a meeting.

The meal plans could use a little tweaking, but overall the food is good. There are also a few different dining options on campus.

The meal plan needs some tweaking at the moment but last year it was good and the food isn't bad
Sari from Thousand Oaks, CA
It's not bad, but it just gets old really easily. I don't have a problem with the system, but a lot of people complain about it because of time periods and how many times you can eat and what not. As a freshman you have to have a meal plan, but after freshman year I would recommend canceling your meal plan and making your own food in the kitchens in the res halls.
Stephanie from Burbank, CA
With the new Ullman commons coming soon, the quality of the food should increase ten fold. Before, students could order from the Cafeteria or the Centrum. CLU is pretty healthy and also offers a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan food.
Claudia from Moorpark, CA
Food at CLU is good the cafeteria has a buffet for salad and pizza and the best part of our cafeteria is that we have a touch screen menu that allows you to pick what ever you want on the menu and it is made right on the spot! Just like any other cafeteria some foods are better than others so you just have to try it all!
