Campus Dining: Loyola just realized its meal plan and dining options were lacking, so they renovated the main dining hall last summer and installed a new meal plan. While this change has improved the campus dining immensely, it is still not that impressive. There is not much variety, and is not near the level of other universities. I'm hoping for an improved experience this semester.

Campus Dining: It varies depending on the day, sometimes it's great and other times it's not. Free midnight breakfast is always a plus!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are a lot of different options, but the quality of the food could be much better.

Campus Dining: The dining hall was called Boulder Café. It wasn't the best place on campus and often it was crowded. The food wasn't always satisfactory but one meal plan entitled you to the entire buffet, so you never left hungry. Besides the Café, there was the Reading room, which sold yogurt and cereal, oatmeal, waffles, sandwiches and plenty more. When kids had to grab and go this was the hot spot. Last, was a place called Iggy's which was a dining hall on the other side of campus. You could use a meal plan or declining dollars and get an entrée, a side, dessert and a drink. There was also a market in Iggy's and in one of the student dorms where students could use declining to buy ice cream, Gatorade, mac and cheese and much more. Overall, the dining options were very flexible and satisfying.

Sodexo operates Loyola University Maryland's dining facilities. Although there is no traditional dining hall, there are 15 individual dining platforms across campus with national brands including Boar's Head Deli, Moe's Southwest Grill, Red Mango, Starbucks, Vocelli Pizza, and Wow Café & Wingery. Iggy's Market features fresh home-style meals, as well as grocery and convenient store items, and Boulder Garden Café has a new section called Iggy's Express, which offers more healthy home-style options for students. Loyola dining has also recently implemented many gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options, and they are very accommodating for students with food allergies. There is also a regular dining committee on campus. Loyola Dining encourages students to join and share their ideas to help make the dining service as compatible with the students needs as possible.

There is not a traditional college meal plan at Loyola University Maryland—dining is a 100 percent retail account. As a student you are given a declining balance card that works like a debit card, and each student puts a balance of his or her choice on either the Dining Advantage account or the Evergreen account. The Dining Advantage account is tax exempt and can only be used at dining locations on campus. The Evergreen account has a 6 percent sales tax and can be used at all of the dining locations as well as anywhere else on campus, such as the bookstore and the laundry facilities.
