What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
i remember my campus tour when my guide was talking about dining services. she said something about the standard deviation regarding students getting sick is about two weeks longer than other school. to put plainly, the food is pretty hard to get sick of.
Juliette from Tacoma, WA
as i said above, the food may seem old after a while, as you'll find lots of the same flavors even in varying dishes. but the choices are pretty broad, and it's very high-quality, especially for college food--and largely vegetarian/vegan. we have pasta, burritos, asian food, a table just for vegetarian/vegan options, a hamburger/fried fare grill, sandwiches, soups, and an awesome pizzaria with a very small convenience store downstairs. if you need anything else, there are several grocery stores within easy walking distance.

One of my top three favorite things about Puget Sound is the food. The sub (the school cafeteria) has stations in which students can choose to get food from: Italian, Latin America, Asian, Vegetarian/Vegan, The Grill, Chef's Table, The Deli, and the salad bar. UPS always has a variety of meals and dishes that are being served- I've never gotten bored or sick of the food there. Not to mention that every thing is delicious. I always enjoy and look forward to eating at the sub.

There are two places on campus that serve food. There is the sub and the cellar. Both are located in the student union building. The sub is the cafeteria and can get a little redundant but you can always find something. The cellar is the campus pizza place and has many items on the menu. There is also a small student store where you can get small groceries. In addition, there are three cafes on campus.

I was pleasantly surprised with the food and dining services. There is a good amount of options if you go at the right time of day. Though I have heard vegans complain about a lack of options. I have a food allergy myself that makes navigation very difficult in the cafeteria. I would recommend bringing documentation from your doctor if you have dietary restrictions. That way you can receive an accommodation to make eating easier.
You can use your meal plan to get food at the pizza place and snack store (The Cellar), the two cafe's (Oppenheimer and Diversions), and the SUB (cafeteria). As a late night person, it is nearly impossible to buy food after 12 unless you go off campus. That has been rough.

We have four options for food and drinks: the Diner, where we have typical cafeteria style service (with lots of delicious options), the Cellar, a pizzeria and snack shop, Oppenheimer, our glass-walled coffeeshop and lunch spot, and Diversions, our main coffee shop. All really good.
