What Students Are Saying

3.55 Average Rating
I absolutely love the food. From the tacos, to the burritos, to the pizza and mozzarella sticks... I love it all! I was informed that the meat and chicken cooked in the kitchen is imported fresh daily. The cafeteria is always clean and comfortable to eat at. I literally go everyday and eat there. I also love how there is a section for grease lovers as me and vegetarians as well.

The Dining Center located at the dorms is a NO GO. I mean you can go and its its edible, but not as amazing as the UC dining hall. That food is just plain out amazing.
Alex from Morris County, NJ
There is the cafeteria which has many choices from breakfast, to pasta, sandwiches, burgers, etc. for lunch and dinner; there is also the Couger den which has less options but better quality of food (healthy also) and more of a restaurant style seating and serving but no tipping. Lastly there is the Ursino restaurant by the STEM building which is organic and uses the farm nearby for its dishes. I have heard great things but have not been there yet.

Kean has about 4 different dining areas some are better than other but overall i cant complain about the food.

I have actually not eaten here so I wouldn't know much. My cousin whom attends the school says it isn't half bad.

The flood is not all that. It's okay. Sometimes it's great other times it's not.

There are three major places to eat ON campus. The New Residence Halls Cafeteria is a buffet-style set up where you can swipe once and get as much food as many times as you want in one sitting. The University Center Cafeteria is bigger and has better (possibly even fresher) food than does the other cafeteria. There are hot foods like wraps, soups, grilled food, salad bar, Tex Mex station, pizza, hot subs, sushi, paninis, etc. which is also a little more expensive but delicious. The Cougar's Den is more a small restaurant that serves healthy, organic, and fresh hot and cold foods. It's a little more costly like the UC Cafeteria. Delicious though.
Freshman Student from Bergen County, NJ
Unfortunately, the food has its highs and lows. The cafeteria that every freshman has to get swipes for is the cafeteria that sometimes has good food. Most people go to the University Center cafeteria which has the best food. We also have a Starbucks on campus so that is always a plus.
Brianna from Piscataway, NJ
Freshmen have unlimited swipes in the cafeteria, as you move up in years you receive less swipes but receive more cougar dollars to spend at Starbucks or the Cougars Den.

The food and dining is good, variety of foods.
