What Students Are Saying

3.38 Average Rating
there are three main locations to get food on campus. one is the village cafe', which is located on the west side of the campus and is similar to a buffet. another is conrad, that is a building on campus which holds three different selections to choose to eat. here you are severed checkers restaurant, meat or veggie wraps, and even home-style chicken and potato wedges. the third location on campus to eat is the austin grill located in our student center which serves everything from cheeseburgers to burritos. most purchases can be made based upon your meal plans. and if you crave something else, the school is surrounded with eateries and restaurants that should satisfy your hunger.
delaware state university is located in dover, de. near the school you have all types of restrauants to eat and enjoy. there is also, the dover mall, which they have a food court that is very selective.

The food not so great. You will likely order out a lot.
Quintera from Newark, DE
I loved the food at DSU at first. Eventually I got tired of eating the same foods so I had to change it up a little. Sometimes I ate campus food and other times I went food shopping. As far as the dining areas, I would give DSU a perfect 10!
