Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is always a go too, you have endless options from candy and cookies to Wally's chicken coop or DP Dough.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is great when the dining halls are closed, however they can get expensive sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I enjoy all the different vegetarian options they have, but most places do not delivery or are too far away and makes getting good food very difficult.

Off-Campus Dining: It sucks. The choices at these establishments are redundant. The same things are offered in each place, just a t a different price. There's no quality food. There should be a Whole Foods built off campus.

Off-campus dining mostly includes takeout and delivery restaurants that serve pizza and wings. They deliver right to your dorm building, and you usually don’t have to wait long for them to get there. Students can pay with cash, credit cards, and even Husky Bucks. These restaurants are all located on the outskirts of campus, making them within walking distance. If you have a car, you can venture farther off campus to other restaurants like Applebee's and Angellino’s Restaurant. Manchester is only 20 minutes away and has a plethora of restaurants to choose from if you feel like having a night out.

The website www.campusfood.com is a great resource for local restaurant menus and ordering online. It is a place to see all essential information for all of your off-campus dining needs.
