What Students Are Saying

3.22 Average Rating
The worst part about the school is probably the cafe food. Although sometimes their food is good, I am very tired of baked chicken and rice and most of their food has no seasoning. The cafe ice cream is great and the staff is as well. I have made some friends in the staff with some of the young as well as the older staff members and for that I am grateful.

The food that Hampton University serves is very good and our café has a section strictly with a healthier selection of food. The café food is never the same in one week so that is a plus because you won't get tired of the food fast.
DAsia from Erlanger, KY
The food is sometimes amazing and then other times horrible.
Myles from Baltimore, MD
The food at Hampton is satisfactory. There will be days where the food is better than others. Common food served are cheeseburgers, fries, chicken, fish, fruits, salads and more. As my first year came to an end the Student Government Association worked on getting better foods served at the caf and it was a success. Hot wings , Buffalo & teriyaki wings were served and it made the students happy. Also ice cream with variety was served. A lot of times students eat out or order out. So theres many choices to choose from. All in all, students who attend Hampton university can cope with the food and dining.

The school has just opened their new cafeteria. This cafeteria has an awesome view and the food has it's up days and down days. It is mostly good though. There are other places to dine that are either on campus or close to the campus.
