What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
The food on campus is decent. If you like a bit of a variety, you can expect to find it in the dining hall. It is set up like buffet style with options from pizza, to pasta, to seafood, to breakfast and the list continues. If you just want a quick snack, the student center has a couple of known restaurants such as Sbarro Pizza and Burger King.

the dinning hall wayne hall, has its good day and bad days. the best option there is the breakfast which is served all day. the downside to the dinning hall is it closes at 7pm. there is a food court that has sbarro, burger king, asian express, and quiznos.

Student from Egg Harbor Township, NJ
there is a lot of options for food on campus as well as around the campus. on the main campus we have a sushi place, a burger king, chinese food, and many more options. also, with your student id you can buy food from other places around town with a student discount.
