What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
Dining at LU is run by Bon Apetit, a large but environmentally conscious food provider. Generally the food is excellent, with a variety of choices and plenty of options for people with dietary restrictions. The campus center houses all of the food options. There is a dining hall that has breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a corner store for buying snacks and other essentials, and a cafe that serves burgers, sandwiches, salads, bagels, coffee, etc. that is open until midnight (important!). The most important thing about dining is deciding on how you want to split your meal plan funds - there are different plans that change the amount of dining room meals you get vs. cafe dollars. Cafe items have been increasing in price, and many people underestimate how often they will go.
Molly from WI
Second to none. Really - the food is excellent. Lots of choices and the quality is far and away superior to every other college I've ever eaten at.

It gets boring after awhile - it's cafeteria food. But before it's boring, it's pretty darn good - better than probably 95% of the cafeterias out there. The cafe is overpriced, as is the corner store, but you get used to it.

Go down to the train tracks and fish, or go to the VR (Viking Room) and have a beer with your professor and discuss the impending heat death of the universe.
Alexander from Northbrook, IL
Our food is actually really good compared to other schools. Sure, it can get old after eating it every day for a couple years, but there are plenty of options to choose from so you aren't forced to eat the same thing day after day. All of our food is from Bon Appetit which is a catering company and they do a great job to provide good quality for the students as well as keeping options open especially for vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free eaters.

The presence of the Cafe and the dining room is very convenient.
