On-Campus Dining Facilities
University Dining Services has campus restaurants to satisfy every taste, and they are conveniently located around campus. The campus restaurants feature a variety of freshly prepared meals, snacks, and beverages. All University dining campus restaurants accept cash and credit cards.

Off-Campus Dining Facilities
Deliciously diverse and always evolving, the Minneapolis dining scene packs a flavorful punch. Restaurants vary from family-style home cooking, candlelit dining rooms, outdoor cafes, and intimate little snack bars. But don’t leave for home until you’ve tried a bite of walleye pike, Minnesota’s state fish. It’s the perfect finish to a perfect visit in the great state of Minnesota-land of 10,000 lakes and even more restaurants.
