What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
like i said unlimited food within the dining halls. they do have a day to day menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. in addition to this there is always, a salad bar, a sandwich bar, a cereal bar, an option of pizza, an option of burgers/garden burgers and fries as well as make your own stir fry stations, all kind of fresh fruit and even waffle makers. believe me when i say you will not go hungry.

as previously stated the only difference within michigan tech's meal plans are the amount of dining dollars (vending machine/cafe) and/or guest passes.

There's been some cuts in the food budget, and the Dining Hall has decided to decrease dining hall hours instead of cutting back on food quality. This means that some dining halls close earlier than others, and you'll have to take a short walk to get food at times, but to keep the food quality decent it's worth it, as the dorms are all located quite near each other.

Food is overall very edible, however, it does go down a little before breaks
Tessa from Waunakee, WI
At Tech you get unlimited meals if you live in the residence halls, but there's a price: the food isn't four-star. Most of the time the meals are good, they just tend to cycle quickly, meaning that you will probably have the same meals every three weeks or so. Occasional special dinners are incredible, and often feature steak and other nice food. The other downside to campus dining is location. While each dorm has its own dining hall, The dining hall in Douglas Houghton Hall only serves breakfast and lunch on weekdays, and on the weekends only the Wadsworth Hall dining hall is open for brunch and dinner (in the winter the walk to Wads can be uncomfortable). McNair Hall's dining hall offers late night food until 9 pm, which is great.
