What Students Are Saying

3.52 Average Rating
Dining options are great, and include an all vegetarian and vegan cafe.
Marissa from Newington, CT
There is a vegetarian eatery (Terra Ve), a main dining hall (buffet style), a pay per item option (the Hub), and Starbucks. All of these places accept the meal plan.
Sarah from Purchase, NY
the food is ok, its good for dorm food and the chefs here come up with some unique food combinations (like chicken and potato eggs) and theme days (wacky wing wednesday or ice cream friday). purchase college is also one of the top ten vegan friendly colleges in america.
Rondell from New york, NY
Purchase is known for being one of the most vegetarian/vegan friendly campuses in the country. There is a wide variety of healthy foods to choose from as well as good old junk food. The Starbucks on campus is great and usually very crowded, hey New Yorkers need their Starbucks. The Starbucks is also known for having the most variety of sandwiches in the country. Terra Ve is the campus's all vegetarian dining hall. There is also the Hub, which is open the latest out of all dining facilities on campus so it's great for late night cravings. The Hub is a mix of a mini mart and a food court. You can get chips and dip, candy and all that good stuff as well as grab yourself a hot meal.
Andrea from Carmel, NY
there are many different options, including vegan, which is great.
Dani from Mastic Beach, NY
With White Plains and Port Chester minutes away and accessible by a free bus system, opportunities are endless for fun activities.
Brandon from Rosedale, NY
Not so bad, I commute, but from far, so I do eat on campus a lot. It's not horrible. The pizza isn't always cooked all the way.
