4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food on Campus is convenient. Not bad not good they have other foods like subway and as well as coffee shops.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls and their menus are average. They do serve good food but could be improvements. The best places are GSH and Carson Late night.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: It's great that common grounds is open late. I think it'd be helpful if more of the dining places were open late.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Lack of dining options near the Millrace campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Spring term and im still not tired of the food

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

In the past few years, the University of Oregon has expanded its on-campus dining to include a full coffeehouse, bakery, and grill. The University offers a selection to suit any appetite, from two dining centers providing all-you-can-eat buffets to the popular Grab 'n' Go Marketplace and its fast food options. Students see the food itself as standard dorm fare, but the variety of options makes it more palatable. You can usually find something on campus that you're not sick of, even if it's not the highest-quality cuisine. There is only one meal plan available—a points-based system—but it comes in three different sizes, depending on your appetite.

You can use your points at the main campus eateries and even treat your friends with your meal plan. Occasionally, you may want to indulge in the EMU's food court, which doesn't accept the point system. Too much of this can get really expensive, though. One interesting feature of Oregon's meal plan is that students are encouraged to submit recipes to the dining services director and may even have their food incorporated into the dining hall offerings. Check out the dining section of the housing services website (housing.uoregon.edu/din) for more details.
