Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is okay. Students are sometimes able to use their Bearcat Cards to pay. However, off-campus dining does not enable students to get any sort of discount; this is understandable because the companies are not affiliated with UC.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many varieties of food and it is very convenient. You can find anything from pizza to vietnamese to indian to mexican. Great options yet can be expensice.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The area surrounding campus has a variety of restaurants, so it's almost impossible not to find something to eat. You have your choice of pizza places, Asian, Greek, and German fare, American favorites, and healthy options. Students can try new things that on-campus eateries simply don't offer, and the off-campus restaurants tend to be less crowded. The only exception to this rule would be Chipotle, which can be crowded around lunchtime because of the restaurant's popularity among students and the community.

The off-campus eateries are pretty affordable, and some places deliver, such as the pizzerias, Jersey Mike's Subs, Penn Station, and Bagel Brothers. But don't worry if your favorite spot doesn't deliver because a majority of restaurants are within a 10-minute walk of campus. It's very easy to grab a quick bite to eat on Calhoun Street or West McMillan Street before classes. The only downside to off-campus dining is the lack of late-night food options. Despite the extraordinary number of restaurants in the area, only a handful stay open late, leaving fewer options for students late at night. On weekends, it's not such a problem, but during the week, you may want to keep your fridge stocked with snacks.
