What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
There are vending machines with snack food (chips, pretzels, candy, and sometimes fruit snacks) in almost every building. About a third of buildings have a small cafes, where you can purchase coffee and the same few healthy food options. The HUB has several food options, such as pizza, pasta, diner-style food (like chicken strips and burgers), and a few different Asian food options.

About a block from UW is a street known as the Ave which has dozens of small shops and restaurants. They vary from cafes to brewpubs to Thai restaurants. Each seats about 30-40 people. By bus, there is access to University Village (with larger restaurants) and downtown Seattle (with more expensive upscale restaurants).
Alexandra from WA
The cafeterias in the school focus on providing students with a large array of different foods to prevent students from growing tired of eating in school. However, eating in the cafeteria all of the time may cause students to seek changes in their eating environment. The UW is similar to a small city, so there are many other restaurants that sell cuisines from a cornucopia of cultures.
Ronald from Honolulu, HI
The options are great. It's super expensive but you have a mandatory meal plan as a first year so it doesn't really matter (don't get above a Level 1, you really have enough money with that-especially if you eat out at all or go home regularly).
Sofia
Food is expensive in the city. Seattle prices will get you whether you live on or off campus, but the food is great. While it is spendy, it is also good quality and there are a wide variety of different dining options for all students. You can eat in a legit restaurant that seats and serves you, or get food from a food cart and everything in between, all payable by Husky card.
