What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
The food at UCCS is really diversified and they have a section for international food. Every week they have a different food from a different part of the world. They have the option to go to the Lodge to eat or you can go to Cafe 65 to eat. They offered food from different places of the world every week and its healthy and tasty at the same time. There are also restaurants around campus that you can go eat out if you get tired of the food at campus.

I mentioned this in the new student tips. Never spend money off campus for food unless you're craving something specific. Clyde's, Jazzman's, and the normal cafeterias have fine dining, whether you're going for gourmet or casual cheeseburgers with friends.
Georgette from Pueblo, CO
I only give the food and dining four stars because I think the food is good enough, but it is a little pricey.
