What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The University of Arizona has a wide variety of different foods and places to eat. The Student Union has a food court, which is just unbelievable. There are many choices like Panda Express, Chic-fil-a, Burger King, a Deli shop, frozen yogurt, and several sit down restaurants. You can purchase a meal plan at the beginning of the semester, and then you just use your student ID to purchase your food which is so nice!

the dining hall does not have any healthy options.

The food is kind of a hassle. It can be annoying to go to the Union constantly just to get your food and fulfill your meals of the day. The food options are not the healthiest either, there is Cactus Grill upstairs, which has some good options if you need vegetables or protein other than a Chick-fil-A sandwich or a burger from Burger King. However, the prices at Cactus Grill can be expensive (except the burgers). The meal plan tries can be somewhat enticing at first, but the whole 10 percent off your meal can be somewhat of a ploy since the average price for food can be $6-10, which can add up overtime and it's not all you can eat unless you go to Pangea for $10.99. There are a lot of options, but I regret having a larger meal plan since I barely use it due to the fact that most of the food is not as healthy and too far away from the dorm. That being said, there are A LOT of off-campus food places that are super cheap and affordable for college students. Just explore the options and do your research on Yelp before going because I know sometimes the pictures can be deceiving.
