Student Life

Dining Experience

Dining at Quinnipiac reflects our commitment to community-based experiences. It's a time for shared connections and conversations. It's why you'll find the attention to detail in our dining environments and food choices. There's something for everyone.

The last few years have seen a revolution in campus dining across the nation. Quinnipiac is committed to sustainability and meeting the dietary needs of all our students. Health issues and food allergies shouldn’t ruin your dining experience, nor should dietary choices and personal beliefs. Our menus emphasize inclusivity and healthy lifestyles, and offer a range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

Dining by the Numbers

30% Sustainability

We source much of our produce from local family farms, and we're actively looking for ways to increase these local partnerships.

9,000 Daily Customers

We cater to more than 9,000 customers every day — and our goal is to satisfy each one.

31 Food Stations

We offer 31 unique food stations across our 3 campuses, serving options such as fresh salads, grilled entrees, smoothie stations, Starbucks coffee and sushi.

Locations and Menus

Dining halls on our 3 campuses offer a menu that represents the global and the familiar, with ingredients that are fresh, sustainable and often sourced locally. We have several unique culinary stations offering traditional and eclectic dishes. If eating sensibly is important to you, you'll love the options — and information — available to achieve a balanced lifestyle.

Meal Plans

Meal plans are refreshed at the beginning of each semester, and students are able to purchase individually priced items in locations across our three campuses. All items in the dining facilities are sold a la carte (not buffet). Instead of a meal-based system, students pay for each item on their Q-Card just as they would in a traditional restaurant.
