What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Meal plan is unlimited, and dining halls double as social spaces. The freshman dining hall is cool and historical, as well as conveniently located, the food isn't as good there as the Houses, but it's not bad. The food gets better the less central the dhall. HUDS is really responsive to feedback and the workers are usually really friendly and helpful. The food, in comparison to other colleges, is mostly average (with both really good and bad days), but there is always something to eat �¢���� if not in the main options at least at the grill.
Current Sophomore
Most students complain loudly about the quality of food here, but they have obviously never been to public school. It's really fine, some days better than others, but it keeps you alive.

Tons of Mexican food around as well as little sandwich shops. There are plenty of great places to go out for coffee and there is a wonderful mix of chain and personal owned restaurants. Basically, whatever the budget, there is a place for you.

As an athlete, I eat LOTS of dining hall food, and am usually fully satisfied. Freshmen all eat in the same Gothic style hall, which can be very fun if you can find your friends, and rather overwhelming if you have to search the rows and rows of tables for a while to find a place to sit. The dining hall can feel a bit crowded at peak meal times, but it is generally easy to find a little corner. Upperclassmen dining halls serve the same food, but it is made in smaller portions, and therefore tastes infinitely better. The rooms are also much smaller and cozier. They strive for a family style set up.
