Food Service

There isn’t a food program associated with Residence Halls, but the cafeteria is right
across the street in the Student Center. Food Service operates Monday – Friday,
7:00am – 6:00pm and they have a variety of options available to you. The Corner
Grille offers cook-to-order breakfast and lunch, deli bar, grilled items, espresso bar,
Mexican food and a full hot dinner. Pizza, salad bar, and a hot lunch can be enjoyed
from the Center Express.

Other Amenities

You just can’t beat the convenience of living on campus at Residence Halls. If you
have a car, you’ll receive a free parking pass for the “dorm only” parking lots. You’re
within easy walking distance of all of your classes. You’ll save vehicle operating costs
and valuable time. Your basic utilities are included in your dorm fees; you pay for
your own room telephone or DSL if you want it, but as mentioned, we have wireless
internet available at no charge and cell phone reception is pretty good. Lastly and
probably most important of all that we have to offer, the experience and friendships
that you gain from living at Residence Halls are priceless.​​
