What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
I realy like the food. Every break they switch out one of the dining options. This semester there's a new Mediterranean stand with pita and stuff...yeah...it's great. :)
Mary from Murfreesboro, TN
There are multiple places to eat on Hofstra's campus and many choices of food to choose from. However, if students get tired of the food on campus, there are some restaurants nearby.
Kimberly from Hempstead, NY
Hofstra offers a large variety of choices for each meal. Between California Pizza Kitchen, Au Bon Pain, the Student Center Cafe, and Bits and Bytes, on any given day there is almost every type of food imaginable available to students. The food is always good, those who complain are the ones who don't take advantage of the variety of food offered. The only legitimate complaint about Hofstra's food is that it can often be expensive.
Austin from Fairfax, VA
Food was good, plenty of variety, if a little expensive.
Luis from Palmetto Bay, FL
Great! They offer gluten free food which is awesome for a lot of people. I am a Nutrition major, so for me to say that they have healthy food means a lot!
Lorie from Minnesota
There are a lot of various restaurants both on and off campus. McDonalds, Chiptole and pizza places are here. There are two Starbucks on campus and one off campus, along with a Dunkin Donuts off campus. Free coffee and tea is available in the commuter lounge. Somedays there is also free food to be found.
Blair from Deer Park, NY
I really enjoy the food, they have healthy places to eat, the dining plans are really easy to figure out.

I'm a very picky eater, so I find it hard to find food I like. If i wasn't so picky I think I would eat way more here but another thing again is the price. Each year they raise prices on all the food and that too is getting so expensive that people are just going to the store and buying their food from there.
