What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
so many choices!
Haley from Goddard, KS
Wichita State University has great food. Our dining hall is always packed because the dorm cafeteria serves great food that feels like a home cooked meal. The student center offers a wide variety of fast food restaurants for students on the go.
Kristyn from Haysville, KS
Food options in Shocker Hall are the best of all the universities I visited.
Daniel from Springfield, MO
housing is a little dull
Chieraqui from Wichita, KS
i have only been to the main campus a handful of times, but the dining in the student center is to die for. they have so many options.
Rachel from Goddard, KS
the food is pretty good. there's always stalwarts like pizza and hamburgers, as well as some exotic dishes to make international students feel more comfortable here. there's a fresh salad bar, soup, cereal, and more. on campus, we have taco bell, pizza hut, the only chick-fil-a in wichita, and breakfast/yogurt joint called fastbreak, a blimpies sandwich shop, and greek and chinese food joints as well.
