4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: College Park has many options for off-campus dining in convenient locations where students can walk or ride. Also, there are a variety of food types sold.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off campus late night food options. If the bars are not your thing, try one of the dozen pizza places open very late. Most places are cheap and in walking distance with nearby bus stops.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places but none are close by and those that are contain cheap, fast food.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The good news is that College Park is filled with a lot of restaurants, fast food joints, and snack shops that line Route 1 and a few mini-shopping centers. There are so many restaurants in College Park that one would think that food is the city’s top income-producing industry. The bad news is that while there are a lot of places to eat off campus, knowing that there are better restaurants a good distance away can make many students’ stomachs ache. However, there are favorites: Chipotle, Five Guys, Marathon Deli, and Noodles & Company.

The food off campus can be awesome, as long as you don’t think about universities in cities like New York, where there are 5,000 restaurants just a train ride away. College Park does have a Subway and a few McDonald’s restaurants, as well as many pizza places; however, if you go home during winter break, watch out for withdrawal symptoms because there really is something special about dining in College Park—even if it entails dining after midnight on a school night.
