What Students Are Saying

4.57 Average Rating
There are soooo many options for dining halls! The food and ambience is great! No need to worry about running out of dollars or anything like that. You get three meals a day so no need to budget. This only becomes problematic when its 11 pm and you want food but its not breakfast lunch or dinner time.
Brea from Freeport, NY
Although it's nothing like home cooking, the staff here really makes an effort. We have a large variety of food, and it's easy for vegetarians and vegans to find yummy stuff. Desserts here are incredible as well....
MK
Yale's food is way better than other cafeteria food. The desserts are incredible (hello, freshman 15) and there are special dinners each semester with really classy food. The freshman year holiday dinner was another highlight of my Yale experience. There's even a place where you can get bagels with lox (tons and tons of smoked salmon and capers!) every other Saturday!
Taylor
The food is all edible and cooked to impress, with exotic dishes coming out left and right. However, some menu selections may prove seriously lacking, and you may find yourself in line at the Chipotle more often than you would have hoped.
Pastor Clearance of Monuckabee, UT
Dining has improved considerably, and the accessibility of nutrition information is fantastic. Dining staff are very accommodating of any special needs students may have, ask for feedback, listen to requests and ideas from students, and host special events.
Lotta from Hartsville, SC
Food on campus is not bad, but the availability of late-night food is less than satisfactory. Dining halls close at 7:30, and this tends to be a problem for students who are up late. The only other options around campus (Gourmet Heaven and Durfee's) are ridiculously expensive. However, Downtown New Haven has some great restaurants. If money is not a factor, these are definitely great options.
J
The food in our dining halls is actually great, we have lots of vegan/ vegetarian/ gluten-free options. Most of the food is actually healthy and doesn't taste too terribly! If all else fails, you can always make yourself a sandwich or eat cereal.
