What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Of course the food in the dining halls can get a little repetitive, but there are many dining options at Union that make finding something you like really simple. Whether you get creative in the dining halls or use your declining balance (a part of the meal plan that functions almost like cash) at another vendor on campus, there's always something that will fit your interests and if you really can't find anything the Dining Services team will do what they can to accommodate your needs!

I love the food. The standard dining hall fare is better and has more variety when compared to other schools, but the specialty options are what set Union apart. The UShi bar is a sushi bar located in Reamer campus center and they make sushi fresh every weekday. The Rathskellar is a little underground grill the serves the best milkshakes in the world. 03 is my personal favorite and they only use local organic food in all of their dishes. I couldnâ??t be happier with Unionâ??s food situation.

When I visited, I ate in the upperclassmen dining hall. The food was SO delicious and much better than some of the other food I've eaten at other colleges. I'm not sure about the freshmen dining hall but if it was anything like the upperclassmen, it's amazing.
Britt from Albany, NY
Food always seems fresh! There's a lot of gluten-free and vegan options if you need it!

i didn't get a chance to eat on campus, but the off campus dining options were pretty good.

The people who work in the food service try really hard to make food that you need, especially if you have specific diet needs.
