What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
There is a great variety of food offered and it's pretty decent too.
Mariam from Nigeria
With 11 different halls, there are over 11 cafeterias to eat in, each cafeteria with different foods and styles in it everyday. I personally enjoy the cafeteria food; they have a diverse selection of foods every day.

There is not a lot of variety when it comes to food. The people in the dining hall are not very helpful when it comes to asking questions. They seem that they could care less about the students eating there.
