Great food. Plenty of choices.
From Starbucks to UHart's own bakery, there is something for everyone when dining on campus! Take a look at our variety of options below.
The Dining Experience at UHart
There’s something for everyone at UHart, and that includes food. Every day, the University Commons dining hall serves up a wide variety of freshly prepared meals in our open-kitchen environment.
You can choose among traditional offerings and the latest in American entrees and ethnically inspired dishes. Vegetarian and vegan options are plentiful, and dietary restrictions and food allergies are accommodated. There’s even a bakery to take care of your sweet tooth.
We know that UHart students are unique: one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why our meal plans are flexible—there’s a plan to fit every appetite, schedule and lifestyle.
Places to Eat
Here, you'll find a delicious, health-conscious menu catered to a wide range of dietary needs. Whether you're looking for kosher, gluten-free, vegan, or vegetarian options, we've got you covered.
Are you craving Starbucks, MOE's Southwest Grill, Subway, or Einstein Bros. Bagels? All of your favorites are on campus. We even have a grocery store if you want to cook at home.
Grab a slice of pizza or a fresh- made burger, and catch a live band, comedy show, or poetry slam on stage. The Hawk’s Nest is a great place to eat, hang out, and even study.
