What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
Dinning halls are okay. There's always something to eat. I wouldn't say that there are many choices though. The kitchen staff is so nice. The downside of the dinning halls in RU Newark is its timing.

Breakfast: 7:30-10:30
Lunch: 11:30-1:30
dinner: 5-8
late night: 9-12 (Not available every day in the week and start 2 weeks after school)
Marina from East Brunswick, NJ
You get fed. The food offered for those with the meal plans in the residence halls is par.
