What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
There are many different places to eat on campus. We have a Pizza Hut, Chik-fil-a, SubConnections, an Italian Restaurant, and a Mexican Restaurant in the student center, cafes, a dining hall, and dining areas in the dorms. There are so many different options on campus. Marshall is also located in the heart of Huntington on 5th Ave, and there are numerous restaurants on 5th Ave and within walking distance of campus.

The food isn't too bad, but it can be a little expensive
Adam from Beckley, WV
marshall offers two dinning halls and a student center all of which the meal plan can be spent at. options vary, so those with allergies, special preferences, or a large appetite can all find what they are looking for.
NL from Bluefield, WV
dining at marshall is very convenient. marshall has two cafeterias, as well as a student center with various options such as chick-fil-a. the cafeterias offer a homestyle section, a grill section, a deli, a salad bar, and a pizzeria. the towers dining hall even offers made-to-order stir fry. in addition, to the options on campus, you are in close proximity to all your fast food cravings located on 5th avenue. make sure you check out the campus hot spot, fat patty's.
Bria from Beckley, WV
Marshall's food and dining areas are top of the line. They have two dining halls, and other restaurants such as Pizza Hut, chick fil a, and star bucks. The dining halls always have a variety of entrees from the pizza station, to the grill, the salad bar, or the international station. The chefs always prepare amazing meals, and take into consideration your opinions.
Margaret from Danville, WV
the cafe food (which you are probably gonna pay for if you get a meal plan anyway) is almost always really good, with a pretty wide selection for all kinds of lifestyles. kosher and halal included!
