What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
First-years are all required to be on unlimited meal plans, which makes eating at dining halls relatively easy. The dining halls are all run through Aramark, and the food is usually decent but not spectacular, which is all you can reasonably expect. However, the convenience of the meal plan is hard to top, as the dining halls are well-spaced, and meal swipes and Plus Dollars make it easy to get a taste of something different. The basement of Newcomb Hall (the student union) has Chick-Fil-A, Five Guys, and Subway (all of which accept meal swipes for certain items but Plus Dollars for the whole menu), and the Amphitheater has a good selection of local food trucks that will take Plus Dollars; these food trucks include meat pies, gyros, BBQ, poke (fish bowls), and dumplings (my personal favorite).

There are three dining halls: Newcomb, O'Hill, and Runk. Newcomb is nicely located on Central Grounds by most classes and the UVA bookstore. O'Hill is by new dorms and is the best in my opinion. Runk is by Gooch/Dillard. All the dining halls have pretty good food. There are always a variety of hot food options, a salad bar, soup, pizza, and ice cream.
