3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Although there are not a huge number of options, it becomes more of a game, deciding where to go. There are a few affordable places that you can order from a few times, but there are also some places you can go to spice things up on a special occasion. The local spots, however, are almost unbeatable in terms of service and quality of food, even though they can be a little pricey for a student budget.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They have a lot of good options, however, the food is on the higher end if you're a broke college student. There aren't any fast food chains nearby, if you want those you'll have to go to the mall which is annoying.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating off campus. There are a million places to go, as well as many different price ranges. You can get any ethnicity of food.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options within walking distances. Our campus is located in downtown Burlington, Vermont. Church Street is about a 15 minute walk and provides all varieties of food.

On such a small campus, Champlain does not have any off-campus food vendors, but downtown Burlington is less than a mile away. Downtown Burlington and the surrounding areas have a surplus of restaurants to satisfy any craving or address any dietary need. There are many restaurants committed to fresh ingredients and local fare, and almost all have vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free options. The restaurants on Church Street in Burlington are a little more expensive. Many are appropriate for meetings, dates, or when family is visiting. Otherwise, there are more convenient selections with delivery options to campus. A walk down to KKD’s (Kountry Kart Deli) is common for a late-night meal, and many students get wings delivered from Wings Over Burlington or pizza from Mr. Mike’s or Big Daddy’s. There is even a cookie delivery place called Vermont Cookie Creations that makes custom cookies and delivers them to your door!

Even if you don’t live or work on Main Campus, there are many restaurants near Champlain’s Miller Center at Lakeside and around Spinner Place in Winooski. Food is never far away, but students need to watch their spending when it comes to off-campus dining, especially when they already have an unlimited meal plan on campus.
