What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
The dining halls are pretty good. It can get boring after a while, but luckily you can use dining dollars for places on campus such as coffee shops, Einstein's Bagels, Subway, and Munchie Mart.
Jeniffer - Grand Junction, CO
On some days, the food is fantastic with many different options. Other days, nothing is appealing. There is always a salad bar and a fruit bar along with a variety of cereal if you cannot find anything else. The breakfast is usually my favorite. The hours kind of suck because if you're in class during certain hours, you just don't get to eat.. They do have pretty good retail dining in the UC where you can spend your dining dollars. The hours are pretty good too. Once again, meal plans are pricey but I enjoyed being able to go to the dining hall if I have no food in my dorm.
Elicia from Westminster, CO
The food here at UNC is superb. You never get bored, because there is always something new. With three dining halls throughout campus, you are never to far away from your next meal.
Carlie from OR
UNC is actually known mainly for the cooks that they hire to serve the students. I work at a dining hall myself, and love the people I work with. The job itself isn't terrible, but the people really make it an experience. The cooks are wonderful to talk to, and will give you tips on how to make something, and even on occasion will except recipes from students home, and try them out. Depending on how the dishes go over they might even add it on the menu.
