What Students Are Saying

3.35 Average Rating
I personally don't use the dining halls on campus much because I budget my own groceries, but the food is good quality and can often be made to your specifications. There are vegetarian and kosher options available. It would be expensive to eat here everyday without a meal plan, but there are meal plan options available for those looking to use them. At the dorms every Wednesday is resident appreciation day so there is usually something free to eat or drink in the lobby.

School clubs and daily on campus events

There are numerous dining places that you can choose from with a wide range of food. The servers are very friendly and the food is quite good.
Michaela from New York, NY
Multiple options to choose from, all equally satisfying.
Michelle from Jamaica, NY
There are two cafeterias on campus and some food carts right outside the campus. Eating out can get expensive so I recommend carrying something light in order to save money.
Kemaul from South Richmond Hill, NY
The food that Chartwells provides is always amazing.
Ria from Hollis, NY
Lots of variety. Quesadillas are the best. Unfortunately, food is a tad expensive for a college student budget.
Jessica from Jackson Heights, NY
I tend to bring my own food because I don't want to spend the money and I don't think the choices they offer are very appealing. My friend has gotten salad a few times and it looks okay. The pizza she had was disgusting, even though I see a lot of people buying it. My favorite thing to get is the assorted fresh fruit cups. There are other restaurants that I have yet to venture in to, so I can't say much more about the dining hall food. As it is with most campuses there are vending machines in almost every building. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a bag of chips or a candy bar, and I can count on Queens to have the machines stocked every day. There are a lot of seating areas both inside and outside of the dining hall and all around campus.
