Welcome to USF Dining Services!
Welcome to USF Dining, the official food service provider for the University of South Florida. Studies of college students across the nation consistently show that students who eat and live on campus are more involved, have higher grade point averages and are more likely to graduate – plus the dining halls are great social centers and provide an easy way to make new friends. 

Students are able to choose from several different types of Meal Plans. Meals can be used at any of our state-of-the-art dining halls, with all-you-care-to-eat servings each meal. Dining Dollars can be used at any USF Dining location on campus.  

In addition to the large variety of food to select from at the dining halls, they are also extremely flexible. If you don’t have time to sit down and eat, you can always get your meal to go! 

Study, Eat & Hang Out!

It's often difficult being away from home for the first time and making new friends can seem like a challenge.  The dining halls are conveniently located close to the gym and all of the residence halls on campus - they are a natural gathering spot for students to meet, greet & eat.  Join your neighbors for coffee, a meal, or a late night snack.  What better way to get acquainted? 

One of the great things about the Meal Plans is its flexibility. Students can enjoy meals at Champion’s Choice, Fresh Food Company & Juniper Dining - these kitchen-less facilities are a revolutionary way of preparing food that emphasizes the freshness of food as well as the individual attention given to each plate. Each plate is created individually, so you can select which ingredients go into your meal. Great for vegetarians or picky eaters!

Meal Plans also include Dining Dollars  which can be used at any USF Dining location on campus like Subway, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Beef 'O' Brady's, Jamba Juice, Moe's Southwest Grill & many more  no matter where your classes are, there's a convenient dining location less than 5 minutes away!

Meal Plans for First Time Residents Living On Campus! 
The Open Access Meal Plan is recommended for any resident living on campus- especially first year residents, plus it is the most economical and flexible way to eat on campus! 

The Open Access provides unlimited entries at all our dining halls – there’s no need to count how many meals you’ve used or how many you have left - & no extra cost to hang with your friends over ice cream! The Open Access provides you with a VIP pass to USF’s dining halls – any time they’re open. It's more than breakfast, lunch or dinner - you’ll make new friends over lattes or meet your study group in the evening for ice cream. If you’d prefer, you can always bring your laptop and surf the net using free wireless internet - if you don’t have time to sit down and eat, you can always get your meal to go! For added convenience, your Meal Plan allows you to access unlimited meals at Champion’s Choice, Fresh Food Company, & Juniper Dining.
