Off-Campus Dining

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast-food joints, but we are close to Arthur Avenue, which has high quality Italian food

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I honestly had a better dining experience off-campus than on-campus. The food could be somewhat pricey depending on where you go but, I've never been disappointed.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A single block from Arthur Ave, Fordham's location is absolutely underrated with respect to the food options. While Arthur is known for its Italian food, you can find all different kinds of food here. From Mediterranean to sushi to just a classic burger, there's something for everyone here.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You're right next to Arthur Avenue which has a huge variety of places to eat, all of which I recommend. And there's plenty of late night pizza options, which for me was a big deal.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options with Arthur avenue right near campus, and even better and quicker options even closer to campus. Better than satisfactory.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

With the on-campus dining options being so poor, the off-campus dining found just outside of both Fordham campuses is a true godsend. Are you in the mood for Italian food? Just take a quick walk down to Arthur Avenue for dozens of choices. Whether you're in the mood for some delicious pizza, an Italian hero, or a fancy sit-down dinner, you'll be able to find it on Arthur Avenue. Not feeling Italian today? No problem—the Fordham area is also full of other ethnic foods, including several Chinese, Japanese, and Mexican restaurants. Looking for something more basic? There are also several delis and cafés that offer some good ol' American food like burgers, chicken fingers, wings, and fries. So no matter what you are looking for when escaping the cafeteria, the area surrounding Fordham has got your taste buds covered. 

Off-campus dining options are also perfect for late-night (and possibly drunken) hunger. Pugsley Pizza is a staple when it comes to late-night dining at Fordham, but now there are more options such as Munchiez and Simon's. These places stay open until about 3 or 4 a.m. on Tuesday nights and weekend nights. Best of all, these places deliver to off-campus apartments and the dorms, so you can enjoy your late-night snack in the comfort of your room—and in your pajamas.
