What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
Buffet.
Nicholas from Littleton, CO
As it is in most colleges, students love to complain about the dining. Personally, I don't think it's too bad. They always have a variety of option for carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores alike, although many students start to get tired of the cycle of food options in a few weeks. They have a good selection of meal plans to choose from. Most people start out with the (most expensive) unlimited meal plan their first quarter at DU, which gives them unlimited access to meals in the dining halls and a hundred bucks to spend at some of the many restaurants around/on campus. However, once you figure out your eating habits, you can easily change meal plans at the end of a quarter to save you the most money. The largest downside to food and dining at DU, however, is the hours of the dining halls. The large, buffet-style cafeterias open and close at the most obscure hours on weekends (you can't get breakfast until 10:00 on Saturdays and Sundays), and they often aren't open around move-in/move-out day. I gave student government a suggestion about this, so hopefully, they'll have this problem fixed soon.

Like many campuses, there is a lot of off site food that is quick and good. The cafeteria here is good as well.
Jeremy from Denver, CO
The food has its good days, but sometimes it's not so great. But what I love is that in the dining halls, it's all-you-can-eat dining, which is not the case at many other universities.
