What Students Are Saying

4.67 Average Rating
We are ranked #2 in Best College Food, second to Culinary Institue of Technology. Since my dad is a great cook I had very high standards concerning food when entering college. When I tried WashU's food I was amazed at the endless options and high-quality meals. We even have a dessert hall (Ursa's) that serves smoothies, milkshakes, brownie sundaes and crepes!
Katherine from New York, NY
Wash U was recently ranked the nation's top university for food lovers by the Daily Meal. It has a wide variety of places to choose from on-campus to eat, and each of those places offers a vast assortment of types of food to choose from: Italian, American, Mexican, Greek, Asian, Indian, as well as Kosher food, sandwich and wrap stations, several coffee and pastry bakeries, and a miniature grocery store. Off campus, there are a few wonderful cafes nearby, and a 15-minute walk will get you to The Loop, which has a variety of chain restaurants (Chipotle, Noodles, Panera, Ben and Jerrys, etc.) and local ones, including a delicious Fro Yo place.
Lindsay from Plymouth, MN
You can get pretty much any kind of food you want, and it's all delicious. There's a pasta station, stir fry station, Mexican food station, burger grill, and pizza stand all in the same place. There are also kosher and vegetarian options, as well as a grocery store. I was able to go two weeks without eating the same thing for a meal, and I enjoyed everything I ate. It's all cooked to order, so freshness is also a plus.
