What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
The food on campus is good, although if you eat on campus all of the time it can get boring.
Phairyn from Canada
Food is all right, there is an all-you-can-eat buffet on the meal plan.
Siri from Los Angeles, CA
The dining areas are welcoming and pretty standard with some outdoor options also. The campus has an all you care to eat dining hall as well as a few smaller made to order places including a subway. The food compared to the standard of campus food is very good and and has a huge variety and healthy options as well.
Adam from West Henrietta, NY
Let's be honest, which school actually has great food?
Kassandra
Clarkson is currently updating all of the dining facilities and it makes them enjoyable to relax and eat at.
