What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
I just explained that the food is great. Expensive, but great. If you want cheaper food, grease trucks usually stop on a crossroad on campus, and they are quite famous.
Ayrton from Newark, NJ
It has its days! There are a lot of fun themes though! I loved Hawaiian lunch! All the helpers wend all out with decorations and costumes! They make the food taste 10000x better!
Vincess Jasmine from North Plainfield, NJ
Many choices of excellently cooked food.
Drew from Ocean, NJ
NJIT has a variety of different places to eat on Campus in which all is great. Taco Bell, Danny's, Starbucks, All you can eat buffet (GDS) as well as many other options; not to mention the Greek Trucks on campus and on the neighboring Rutgers campus.
Semaj from Irvington, NJ
The food at NJIT is like that of a 4 star restaurant. Its buffet style and for a small fee you can eat as much as you want. Its a huge variety of food there, to much to explain.
William from Irvington, NJ
The staff are grumpy and mean with a few exceptions and the food was sometimes inedible. Also not a great selection compared to all the other colleges I visited.
Adel from Newark, NJ
There is a lot of variety of food, as well you can cook your own food if you don't want to eat what its already prepare.
Juanita from Englewood, NJ
The food is well-prepared and not bad at all.
