What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Metz is our supplier of food for Gannon. Overall, it is very good. It gives you a variety of different choices every day, so you never have the same thing too much. But, if you don't like the special of the day, there is always pizza or wraps that you can get.
Emily from Poland, OH
There are many places to eat on and off campus. On campus places do have really good food but it is a little expensive if you are not using a meal plan but off campus site allow you to use GU gold so you can get food that is cheaper.
Hannah from Corry, PA
Lots of options to dine with the school plan. There are also many places to eat around campus.

There are various locations on campus and in the Erie community for food. The university allows you to put money on to your ID that can be used on campus or at over 75 different off campus locations.
