What Students Are Saying

3.47 Average Rating
The food is pretty good i'll say. There are different types of food and different places where you can get it. For instance there is marina dining hall where there is a buffet part and fast food place known as the HUB. Then there is Fresh Tossed that is downstairs in the Student Center which like a healthy eating place. Depending on what meal plan you applied for is the amount of dining dollars that you receive. Just make sure to use the money wisely.

i usually bring my own lunch from home, but the burgers from the hub are really good! i'm addicted to coffee from the scribe. i like marina for brunch everyone once in awhile but i do not think eating there every day would work for anyone.

It's cool because you can eat snacks and Starbucks-esque food at the Scribe in the library for a very good price. The Marina dining hall has different vendors, like a BBQ hut, Thai food, Italian. In marina you get your food first then pay for what you get at the checkout. The HUB is set up like a high school cafeteria but with as many options as you wish. If you eat a lot I would consider getting a meal plan (they have one for commuters too) because you have to pay BEFORE you go into the hub, and then you can get whatever you would like, similar to a buffet. It does get pricey though, with lunch ranging to about $10.75 and dinner $11.75

The beach is located near the school. There are cafe's around the school. New York City is just a short train ride away.

UB schedules many social and sporting events for students to attend and participate in. The beach is a few foot steps away, take a walk or run, or just lay and relax by the sound. It is also close to the Webster Bank Arena, which has concerts and more.

The food is okay but it can be better.
Allan from Passaic, NJ
You are smack-dab in a huge cultural melting pot. There is something for everyone here, and it's great to try new foods and experiences.
Stephanie from Trumbull, CT
There are two dining options on campus; one Marina, the school cafeteria, providing to all those with a meal plan, and the hUB which is a sociable dining establishment. The school cafeteria often at times lacks in variety, and with that becomes a dull routine of same foods after every few weeks. Nevertheless, it provides enough resources for innovation and allows students to be able to cook their own meals there from time to time. They're open conveniently for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Although they lack in food variety they surely make up for it; personnel are very friendly are in touch with their students, they are open to suggestions as well as planning events. This adds to friendly community aspect which I stated previously, every individual on campus plays their role in bettering the school as a whole. For those times when the school cafeteria is closed, the hUB is open to students providing delicious quality meals that can be bought using dining dollars or cash, the only downfall being that they don't accept debit. The hUB provides students with an establishment to socialize in and hang out from the hours of 10am-11pm.
