Campus Life - Dining Options

Colleges of Lafayette’s size typically have only two or three dining venues, but Lafayette has six dining locations spread across campus. Students don’t have to walk far or wait in long lines when they’re hungry. Options include two traditional, expansive student restaurants, one retail food court, and three casual cafés with à la carte menus. Food is available on campus from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. most days of the week. There are plenty of items to choose from at each meal, and the chefs change the options regularly. Seasonal, local produce is added when available. Special themed events highlight holidays and cultural traditions that expose students to new cuisines.

At Lafayette, it’s not hard to customize a dining plan that satisfies your particular wants and allows your family to feel confident that they’ve provided well for you. And within easy walking distance there are restaurants specializing in seafood, Asian, Portuguese, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Jamaican, Middle Eastern, and American cuisine.
