4 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a wide variety, but llines are usually very long. Also, the fee that is put on meal plans is way more than the amount actually on the meal plan. For example, i had $700 on my meal plan but had to pay an activation fee of $2,500

Campus Food: The lines can be long, but as long as they keep Bell Tower open there will be a sure place to go for good stir fry, pizza, and other options.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
