What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
The campus dining halls are not all that great. The best place for first years is NorthSide Dining Terrace, which has Chick-Fil-A, Subway, and Currito, however, it uses dining dollars. Once you are no longer bound to the meal plan that Drexel forces first years to take, there are a great number of delicious places to grab a quick bite or a full meal, you are in Philly after all!

The food is OK. We got a new food provider this year and they're trying to get better. My main problem is that the meal plan only lets us get food at one location on the weekends. That food gets old after a while.
Kristina from NC
Urban Eatery is a dining option for sit down, restaurant style meals, while the Hanschumacher dining center is more similar to a cafeteria.
Xavier from Littlestown, PA
There are so many options on campus. If you want something cheap, but don't want food from the dining hall, there are food trucks everywhere that are totally affordable.
Eliza
The Drexel campus has a lot of different dining areas. The meal plan is fair and taste good. From the dining hall to the variety of food trucks.
