What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
we have two main dining halls - douglass and danforth. danforth provides really high-end up-scale food, but you can almost count on these things to always be there in some variation: something with fries, dessert, salad bar, pasta, usually mexican or chinese, vegan, and pizza or other pasta. douglass is more of a comfort food place - there's a kosher station, pizza/pasta stations, grill, and another station actually labeled comfort. food is fine at both, but nothing compared to home-cooked meals of course!
Pre-med from Portland, OR
Aramark is the caterer for the school. Though it is expanding its repertoire, the food gets real boring real fast.
Eric from Durham, CT
Hey! The University was ranked sixth (6th) by the Daily Meal in their 75 Best Colleges for Food in America for 2014.
Orin from Brooklyn, NY
It would be a lie if I said that the food you get on campus is like the food you get at home, but the food is not bad at all. There is usually a variety of choices you can chose from even though the number of dinning halls are limited. For those of you who are vegetarian, vegan or allergic to certain types of food, you won't starve to death. And I think it would safe to say that the food on campus can lead to the freshmen 15.
