What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
The food is pretty good at Shippensburg. On campus, you are offered 3 meals per day--one for breakfast, one for lunch, and one for dinner. There are 2 dining halls open until about 7-8pm as well as a cafeteria that is open until 12am. Aside from on campus, there is a gas station, dollar general, dollar tree, giant, walmart, various chinese restaurants and fast food that surround the campus and town as well as small diners and cafes.
Enna from PA
Ship has a lot of options for food and two large buffet style dinning halls.
Josh
The food's alright. There are two dining halls placed on either sides of campus, and in the CUB building in the center of the campus you can get some food and either eat there or take it with you. Good for students on the run, because it's open later than the dining halls.
Birdie
The food at Shippensburg is great which is a large part of choosing a university. You don't want to go to a place that has disgusting food. If I had anything to say it would be that I wish we had more food choices as far as places to eat.
Chelsey from Everett, PA
Any thing you could ask for is freshly prepared to your liking. The have specials and salad bars, grill, fruit bar, desert bar, and the space in the dinning hall features flat screens so you will never miss your shows and or sports events while you get a good meal.
Monae from Bushkill, PA
There are two buffet style dining areas for students. I personally think that the food is very good and there is a lot of variety to chose from. There is also a fast food type of building to eat at on campus which gives students the opportunity to grab food before their classes.
Jordan from Hanover, PA
There is a wide variety of food choices. Whatever you are in the mood for I can guarantee you would be able to find it at one the dining locations.
