What Students Are Saying

2.32 Average Rating
Some people say the dining hall isn't up to par, but it's warm food on bad days. It may need seasoning, and pizza and pasta do get old quickly, but there's always something available.
Murryn from Gibsonville, NC
The food at Hollins can either be hit or miss. The cafeteria serves its food buffet style so students can get as much food as they want. The bad thing about the food is that it is often not very healthy, and there isn't many vegetarian options available to those who don't eat meat. We also have a little restaurant located under the cafeteria, that serves exceptional fast food.
Jamila from Roanoke, VA
Moody Dining Hall is average at best, but unfortunately has its sub-par days as well. If you are paying very close attention to what you're eating, you can eat healthily. Because we're in the South, some of the food is a little more fatty than necessary. There's also a sad lack of vegetarian variety, though if you're happy with beans, tofu, and salad, you can continue a veggie diet.
Kyri from Estes Park, CO
A lot of students are not the greatest fans of our dining hall, but as long as you break up your meals between the main dining hall Moody and the more casual Rat downstairs of Moody. Dining at Hollins can certainly be enjoyable.
Maya from Knoxville, TN
Dining is hit or miss. I dislike the fact that students are required to be on the meal plan unless they have a valid religious or medical reason, but it does make sense; kitchens in some of the dorms are tiny (ok, I speaking of West in particular. Tinker's are good; East's is good; the apartments have good kitchens) and not always the cleanest. The food is sometimes really good and sometimes isn't. It depends. The school does make en effort to provide variety to suit different needs, and Hollins often pulls from the community to get fresh fruits and veggies (and recently, milk. Which is super good). One issue I have is inaccurate food labels. Labels are often wrong and don't disclose allergens or have 0's for all the nutrition facts. Not cool.
Grace from Hollins
You have a variety of choices at our dining hall here at Hollins. The services try their best at accommodating any dietary restrictions. They are also always open to feedback and suggestions!
Josepha from Roanoke, VA
The dorms are larger than you would see in most colleges and the roommate pairing system is very accurate if you answer all the questions truthfully.
