What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
There is one dining hall on campus, the J, which primarily serves the Canyon and Hill dorms. The food here isn't bad and is the cheapest place on campus to eat. In the middle of campus you'll find the Depot. While the food here is good and is generally busy, it is probably the most expensive place on campus to eat. At the bottom of campus there is the College Creek marketplace and there is another marketplace at the very far end of campus by the BSS building.
Dion from Thousand Oaks, CA
The food is pretty great to be utterly honest. Many healthy options, vegan, gluten-free, and vegetarian. Produce is local and you get plenty for the right price with you meal plan. The cafeteria is definitely loud at dinner but it is a wide space. Breakfast is probably the best part of the day and there are so many options.
Freshman from SoCal
The best thing about food here in HSU is that you have options on where you can go eat.
