Craving the sort of canned fruit, mystery meat and slightly doughy roll glop you struggled to choke down all the way through elementary school? Sorry, we can't help.  Instead, think delicious food, wide variety, good prices, & lots of places.  Just swipe your OneCard and dine!

The Commons on the Green isn’t just a dining hall, y’all—it’s a dining experience. It is a source of nourishment and entertainment. Choose your cuisine from the Commons’ offerings of grilled foods, deli favorites, pizza and pasta, classic home-style flavors, international delicacies, vegan offerings, and soups and salads. All meals are all-you-care-to-eat. And it’s pretty! A modern yet comfortable interior, a panoramic view of the Campus Green, and free wifi give you a reason to linger over lunch, stop by for a study session, or just relax after class and/or hang out with friends.

Remember, the Commons on the Green is now all-you-care-to-eat all the time - for breakfast, lunch AND dinner!
