What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
Dining opportunities are plenty at KU and because the campus is so close to Massachusetts St., a popular dining and shopping locale, their are many choices for students to find nourishment.
Zach from Overland Park, KS
There is many places to eat at on Mass Street, and there is many fast places to eat also. Pizza Shuttle has good pizza. 3 Spoons good frozen yogurt. Tryyaki has good Asian food. Chipotle always seems to be the cheapest and best Mexican food.

there is a large variety of types of food that this university offers it's students. there's healthy food and junk food, vegetarian options and a wide array of snacks. you can always find a new meal to try at one of the universities many food courts and restaurants. many food places are open twenty-four hours a day, which is great for our late-night studiers.
Samantha from Villa Park, IL
The food in Lawrence is great, but the food in the Dining Halls gets really old. THis is to be expected, however. There's only so many meals they can cook and they start to get monotonous after months.
Jordan from Littleton, CO
there was only one case of food poisoning, the entire week that i was there; whereas at my high school, food poisoning was just a daily deal. i was impressed with the different food choices.
