Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of dining is available on campus?

We have three dining halls on campus, two of which--Terrace and Towers Dining Halls--are conveniently located in residence halls, and the Campus Center Dining Hall, which is located near the academic quad. Besides your basic fare, we provide vegetarian, vegan, kosher, and special-needs meals. You'll also find allergen-free eating at the Simple Servings station in Terrace Dining Hall, as well as brown-bag lunches, Sunday brunch, and Friday Shabbat.


With your Bonus Bucks (money you deposit in your meal plan and access simply by using your ID card), you can visit nine separate retail locations on campus. Order lunch at Sub Connection in the Towers Concourse, grab an afternoon snack at the Campus Center Food Court, or drop by La Vincita for a Starbucks® coffee and a snack. There are also several conveniently located cafes in the academic buildings, making it convenient to grab a beverage and something to eat between classes. Circles Market, located at the Circles Community Center, provides entrees, side dishes, and a variety of convenience items; you can even make your own delicious F'real milkshake! And, don't forget to check out the tc Lounge Coffee Bar on the 14th floor of the East Tower. Overlooking Cayuga Lake, the tc Lounge provides the perfect scenic retreat for evening study, and is a great venue for hosting specialty events.
