What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
dc food. yum.
not really.
but dorm food will always be cheap and full of carbs no matter where you go.
there is one dining center here. the meal plan varies from 1,600 to 2,000 a year here, depending on whether or not you got the 1 meal a day, 2, or 3. but again, that's actually cheaper than most schools.
it's hard to eat healthy here because the only healthy thing to eat is salad. but they do have good stuff available. if you get bored of what they have here, just get creative-there's usually enough raw ingredients in the salad and sandwich bars to make yourself something new.
hamburgers, salad bar, sandwich bar, cereal bar, and ice cream are available everyday.

the hours are bad though, especially on saturdays and sundays. it's also easy to miss meals during the week because of class/sports.

The Food Court and Northern Shores Coffee Shop are great places to quick grab a bite to eat! The new dining center looks very nice, but the food is not the greatest--its totally eatable, but not the best tasting. If you have a gluten free need it can be challenging to eat here a lot, so I recommend choosing the apartments freshman year so you have more control over your diet.

With UMD's new dinning hall the food has increased a ton and they have a ton of different options for food.

Very reptative but the ice machine is always a good option when its working
Sarah from Duluth, MN
The cafeteria food is really good sometimes and OK others. However, there is LOTS of variety (salad cart, sand which bar, burger bar, vegetarian options, soups, the hot meal stations, ect.). There are some restaurants and coffee shops on campus that are really great! The coffee shop is especially awesome (the red velvet cupcakes are the best). There is also a Greek restaurant, a burger hub, an Italian restaurant, and others. It is also very easy to order a pizza or jimmy john's right to campus.

I'm not going to say the Dining Center is amazing. However once you can't go there anymore you have a higher appreciation for what they offer. There is also the option of the food court which you use UMD dining dollars or cash at. You can deposit dining dollars onto your account at anytime and they are tax free so it is actually cheaper to do so.
