What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
Wide selection of food everyday. The menu changes everyday, and they also have a few hot spots on campus such as Chick Fil A, Freshii, Buscuitville, and a restaurant that acts like a substitute for Chipotle.
Sidney from Henderson, NC
Dining halls on campus are okay. They sometimes repeat meals every other week, but the food they serve is good and staff members are very nice. There are many other food options on campus aside from dining halls that are open later than the dining halls.
Vicky from Wilmington, NC
Here's the downfall. The dining halls aren't open 24/7, and with a performer's crazy schedule, that's a little inconvenient. The meal plans are kinda dumb and I feel like I'm throwing money out the window by being forced to have a certain one. The food itself isn't exactly great, either.
Christine from Raleigh, NC
Great food most of the time in the dining halls, but sometimes a little repetitive. However, there are on campus restaurants like Qdoba, Boars Head, Topios, and Chick-fil a to name a few that can help change things around.
Erin from Holliston, MA
elon university has three dinning halls which are, harden, mcewen, and colonades. there are also retail locations such as boars head, pan geos, varsity sports and grill, and 1889. there are a great selection of choices from salads, pastas, chicken, burgers and soups. there's many gluten free and healthier options for those who cannot eat gluten. the only concern would be that the if you go to lets say mcewen everyday, then you'll get bored of the same food. try to variate between the other dinning halls because eventually you'll get tired of eating the same thing.
Brian from Burlington, NC
The dorms are amazing! Even the smallest ones are spacious, and there are many different styles offered to suit any preference. There are also many services offered for the dorms: they will cut and install any carpet of your choice before you arrive for a nominal fee, if they can access your bathroom from the hallway they will clean it for you, there is free Wi-Fi throughout the entire campus, and if you don't want to use the free laundry machines they will wash and fold your laundry for a nominal fee. You also have the opportunity to switch roommates up to four times a year just in case something goes wrong. The dorm life is really amazing!
