University Dining

Food that feeds the mind and body.

To that end, we have invested in our dining program on multiple fronts, renovating and expanding several locations on main campus and adding the first permanent, full-service, public dining operation on Centennial Campus: On the Oval Culinary Creations. We’ve created a menu mix across campus that provides more variety than ever. Our team of 13 professional chefs ensure that every bite is delicious.

Our facilities, nutrition programs and sustainability efforts are regarded as being best of the best among our peers. Our dietitian, Lisa Eberhart, has received the Governor’s Award of Excellence for her work to promote healthful eating and to help our guests make informed decisions when they dine with us.

Our “My Roots at NC State” sustainability program brings local foods into our dining halls and promotes our green initiatives, mostly aimed at reducing waste and energy usage.

We are proud of our efforts to nourish our campus, and we’ll continue to look for ways we can improve our program in the coming years.
