What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
The dining hall is open everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They keep it open all day for random snaking. There is also a little cafe that you can eat at. It is also open 7 days a week.
Cristina from Buena Vista, VA
The food is so good, and everyone is so nice.
Lacy from Glenmont, OH
Southern Virginia University offers a dining hall and a campus cafe called Jonzzey's. The dining hall is great because if you don't like the hot food they serve, there is a salad bar, a deli bar, and a grill to make eggs or a grilled cheese sandwich. Jonzzeys is a cafe that serves sandwiches, paninis, pretzals, and so much more. Both are ideal options for any meal on any day.
Haley from Richmond, KY
the dining hall is small and has specific dining hours which can sometimes be hard to fit into certain schedules. luckily there is jonzzey's, a small cafe, that is always open for meals and snacks between classes. the dining hall provides different food for each meal but other choices such as cereal, salad, and sandwiches are always available.
