What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating

Although the thought of college food might make any prospective student a little queasy, the food and dining system at Maryland is quite impressive. The dining hall itself has a lot of variety, including stations for sandwiches and wraps, make-your-own pasta, Korean bbq, quesadillas and cheesesteaks, and one that is much like a Boston Market. The dining halls also have a a full pasta bar with fruit and soup, vegan station, a pastry station, and fridges full of desserts. One of the best parts of the dining hall, in my opinion, is a station called the â??Chefâ??s Specialâ?? where thereâ??s a different choice for lunch and delicious dinner every day to add a little variety to your diet. The dining hall also hosts many different special events that are definitely something to look forward to. Thereâ??s been a Jamaican night, a Big 10 night featuring foods from all of the Big 10 teams, holiday dinners, and â??late night decadenceâ?? that serves unique and delicious desserts for a late night snack. One of my favorite parts of the dining system at UMD, however, is a little place called 251 North that is built into your meal plan once a week. At 251, thereâ??s all-you-can-eat buffets with food that is surprisingly delicious. It has become something my friends and I look forward to every week. What is also great about UMD is that, if you have some extra dining points which many people do, you can go to a restaurant called Adele's. Adele's is an elegant restaurant located in the Stamp Student Union where you can buy a lot of quality dishes using dining points. Some of my favorite things on their menu is the crab dip, New York strip steak, jambalaya, and lava cake. Donâ??t those just make your mouth water? Adele's is an AWESOME treat for UMD students. And between meals youâ??ll need a snack, right? Every semester you get terp bucks that you can spend at the convenient stores, cafes, and the 24 hour shop on campus. The convenient stores and 24 hour shops are lik...

Like any college campus, you can get tired of the same food, but there are many other options near campus so that you can mix it up.
Jean-Thomas from Hyattsville, MD
The North and South Campus Diners offer a great variety of choices. 251 North offers all-you-can-eat gourmet dining, and is very fun to visit with friends. There are also numerous shop on campus and Route One has many different restaurants that are located right off campus and will suit everyone's fancy
