What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
UT has a ton of dining options and even makes it cheaper by allowing you to pay with a currency called "Bevo Bucks." There are a couple places to eat on campus, like The Union and The SAC which include Taco Cabana, Chick-fil-a, and Wendy's. The two main dining halls are Kins and J2. They are both buffets that serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. they serve different specialty meals daily, along with burgers, fries, and fresh greens. We are also incredibly fortunate to have restaurants all along Guadalupe.

If you tolerated high school cafeteria food, then eating college cafeteria food will be more than just okay. Outside of campus, UT has loads of restaurants that cover foods across the world so try new places. Also there are a handful of places that are open late in case you're hungry late at night. Although UT has a mixed collection of places to eat, try not to eat out everyday because it tends to get pricey. So if you get a meal plan somewhere, don't forget about it. You'll find out various clubs and organizations offer free food at their first couple of meetings. Free food should not be ignored in college.
