What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
The food is really good. If you get bored, you have to suggest something that you would like to have, don't just complain. There are also about 4 living options that have kitchens, including Northpointe (the most expensive building) the honors house (only honors students are allowed to live here) The Global Scholars house (for student in the global scholars program) and Linden 6

There are quite a few places on campus to eat, and from the few times I have eaten on campus, the food was excellent. A wide variety of dishes are served and you'll certainly find the food and dining acceptable here. Fairleigh Dickinson also has a partnership with various restaurants located near the campus, so you should have more than enough options to choose from.

There are three different cafe's on campus. If you choose to dorm, you are required to purchase a university meal plan. The meal plan allows you to swipe in one of the three cafes, in which you can eat similar to a buffet style, three times a day. There are a variety of foods that are offered from pizza, to burritos, to Chinese. There is even a salad bar and a sandwich bar where you can make a sandwich to go and take it with you to class.

If you are not in the mood for campus food, there are many different locations where you can go off campus to eat. There is a multitude of diners around campus, as well as two malls. Also, New York City is a simple bus or train ride away, therefore you can make a trip and enjoy an assortment of foods to fit your preferences.
