Campus Dining: There are an overwhelming number of food options to chose from dispersed around the campus. However, you can end up getting stuck going to the same places once you get into your day-to-day routine. It's up to you to venture out.

Campus Dining: I love how the meal plan is set up as actual money. There are plenty of options, however things arnt open very late.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's interesting. Everything that can be branded in marked with the university's "M," but that doesn't effect the taste of the food which is exceptional.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food on campus is absolutely HORRIBLE! it shocks me how during orientation they glorified the vast food choices they created for their students when in reality the food is the same every day, there is no variety and furthermore the food is usually very oily and lacking nutritional value. I have also witnessed some of my friends who are gluten-free have a hard time finding meals that fit their dietary needs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The buffet style dining halls close at seven which is before some classes end. The rest of the food is relatively overpriced if you want to be full when you are done.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Miami University has a large number of on-campus dining options. For every three or so dorms, there is a suitable dining hall. There are also a couple markets around campus that students can go to when they are looking for a quick bite to eat before doing some work. At most dining halls, there is a nightly special, and although the staff tries its best with the special menu items, students usually stick to the basics that are available at each dining location.

Overall, the food is good but repetitive. There are also some on-campus restaurants, such as Panache and La Mia, that provide a restaurant vibe where students can still pay with their meal plan, which is extremely convenient. However, even though the on-campus food is good, Oxford also has many delivery options that most students take advantage of after being at the school for more than a semester.

Did You Know?
  • Most students who have a meal plan purchase a diplomat plan, which gives them a limited amount of dollars that can be used anytime, anywhere on campus. It is by far the most common food plan used by students who live on campus. The snack plan is used mainly by students who live off campus.
  • Many students also purchase MU Bucks, which provides students the ability to charge restaurant deliveries to their cards.
