What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
Out of all the colleges I've visited, Uconn easily had the best dining options. There's something like seven or eight dining halls on campus and we get unlimited dining hall swipes to all of them. The food is actually surprisingly very good, and the dining halls do a really good job of mixing up what they put out so you don't really get tired of eating the same food all the time. The Student Union also has great food including the Student Union Market(which you can use points at) and Subway, Panda Express, and Dunkin Donuts. Also, you can order food from Wingz Over Storrs, DP Dough, and many other local places, most of which are great and reasonably priced. I'd definitely give the food a 10 out of 10. I eat better at school then I do at home!

Uconn has a pretty boss meal plan. I mean, you'll inevitably get sick of the food, but it's generally good and you get free swipes to any dining hall at any time of day. Points can be used to buy (yummier) food from the Student Union and Cafes around campus during late night hours. On weekends you can purchase food with points until... I think 1 a.m.? They always serve pizza, Mexican, chicken wings, salads and paninis and sandwiches. Opt for the 500 point plan, if you can afford it. It's worth it just so you can be obese and stress eat during finals without having to budget all year. the only downside is that all your friends will mooch off you for food at the end of the year once everyone else has spent all their points. But who knows, maybe you can use them as leverage to get personal favors of some sort. ANyways, if you don't want to spend money on the meal plan, your options are kind of limited, since most dorms don't have kitchens. Furthermore, if you don't have a car, it's pretty hard to get to the grocery store. I'd say the nearest one is a good 5 miles off campus. I know there's a bus that goes to a Big-Y or Walmart or something of the sorts, but you'll have to look into it, because I never opted to go that route. Aside from all that, there are a few staple take-out places (Wings Over Storrs, DP dough) that you simply MUST try if you want to be a real UConn student. Other notables include the Dairy Bar, which is an ice cream parlor voted #1 in Connecticut (probably cause it's made out of milk squeezed from our very own UConn cows) and Chuck and Augies, a wannabe upscale restaurant that will accept points from your meal plan. (Can you say cheap date?) Alrighty, I wrote too much for this section already. I really like food. Sue me.

As a University Dining Services employee, I can tell you for sure that the food is great and well-prepared. You'll never go hungry here.
