University Dining

Food that feeds the mind and body.

University Dining is committed to giving our students, staff and guests a place where they can relax, connect, and fuel their minds and bodies for academic success.

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 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 X professional chefs ensure every bite is delicious.

Our nutrition and sustainability programs, as well as our facilities, are regarded as “best of the best” amongst our peers, and our dietitian, Lisa Eberhart, has been recognized with the Governor’s Award of Excellence for her work to ensure our guests can make informed decisions when they dine with us and promote healthful eating. 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 our efforts to nourish our campus, and we’ll continue to look for ways we can better our program in the coming coming years.


  • We have more than 8.600 students on a meal plan. We serve faculty, staff and campus guests, too.
  • We accommodate group visits, ensuring they are served within a specific timetable and ready to get back to their campus programming.
  • We have more than 30 locations across campus, including dining halls, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores and vending machines.
  • 28 percent of our food served in the dining halls is procured locally.
