4 College Junior

Campus Food: It's great but the cost is still too high for a meal plan, it is better to just eat wherever you want every day and not have a mealplan.

Campus Food: It was great at first but then it became the same thing over and over!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is usually good, South Quad is the best place to eat in my opinion. The menus are usually open and change and their are always plenty of options for all types of students. Dinning dollars and Blue Bucks are the best things ever! They come in handy when you have those late study nights and the Union is open.

Campus Food: Its nutritious enough to get me through the day

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Most of the dining halls have respectable food, but they are often so crowded that you cannot find a seat or you have to squeeze a chair into a full table. I have found that East Quad does has this problem, not too mention they have very limited hours of service.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Campus dining is a combination of dining halls, fast food joints, and convenience stores. While dining halls work on a meal plan system, the latter two use a debit card-like system called Blue Bucks. Many students gripe about the quality of the food and the inconsistency between dining halls. What campus dining lacks in quality, however, it makes up for in its abundant variety of options. Michigan does a remarkable job of providing food for an array of diets, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. University dining halls can be found in or within close proximity to almost any dorm. North Quad is overwhelmingly the most popular dining hall among students, with "Mojo" (Mosher-Jordan adjoins Hill Dining Center) coming in a close second. Many students rave about the weekend brunch meals and the warm chocolate chip cookies. With salad and sandwich bars, fruits and vegetables, and cereal available at every meal, even the pickiest of eaters can find something they like.

Special Options
If you are unable to access a dining hall during regular hours, you can order your meal by 4 p.m. and get it to go. Also, the dining hall will be happy to provide you with a special meal if you are sick or have an injury. A friend or roommate can pick up the meal.
