What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Louisville offers two types of dinning plans: flex points and swipes. While its kind of a bummer that as a commuter I still HAVE to buy a meal plan, it comes in handy in a pinch. There is a lot of good food and coffee on campus. I can say I've spent too much money on bagels and coffee in the mornings.

although there aren't many healthy options there is a good variety, from subs to pasta there is something different available every day of the week.

The Ville Grill is an all you can eat dining hall that our meal plan is accepted at and it has great food. There are plenty of other food choices within walking distance from our dorms and there are great restaurants within driving distance also.

The Student Activity Center has Papa John's Pizza, Subway, Chick-fil-a, Wendy's, chinese and others. There's also an on campus buffet called the Ville Grill that's also pretty good. For all of those you can use your meal plan card. Also around the area is Bearno's Pizza, Qdoba, ice cream shop, and some others but you have to use your own money for those I believe. Honestly, towards the beginning of the year, you love the fast food options. Towards the end of the year, you're pretty much tired of it and ready for home cooked meals!!! Many people I know prefer the fast food over the Ville Grille, but hey! To each its own.
Ashlyn from Louisville, KY
there are many fast food locations scattered throughout campus. these locations accept a meal card for the freshman students. the only complaint is that there are few healthy choices and there is no grocery store where students can spend their meal points.
