What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
Marycrest has great wraps and awesome workers. VWK has a ton of options so you never get bored. The Emporium (The Empo) is a great quick stop before classes. There's always fresh fruit and veggies. Plus, you can even use your meal plan for milkshakes at the Hangar in KU, the student union.
Taylor from Naperville, IL
There's a reason UD is nationally ranked for healthy students; the food here is healthy! While there are options to indulge in (chicken fingers, the best french fries in the state of Ohio, and who can forget the legendary Marycrest Monster Cookie?!), there are also many healthy options that are delicious as well. If you go up the hill to VWK, you will think that you're traveling around the world. They offer your traditional meals such as subs, salads, and soup, as well as a Mongolian grill, a burrito stand, and a sushi bar. With several different options to satisfy whatever craving you would like, UD is the place to be when it comes to dining services.
Marie from Bellbrook, OH
Plenty of choices. Even a Qdoba type place and a sushi bar. Sometimes the less popular dishes sit out for a while and get dry but the majority of the food is great.
Dylan from Indiana
the dining halls are amazing. the workers are the sweetest people too! kennedy union has the best breakfast potatoes and the all new vwk has chipotle style and mongolian grill, not to mention a bakery! the food off campus is also wonderful, and many restaurants accept our flyer express cards for payment.
