Dining

Student cafeterias are located in many places on campus. Students may purchase a meal plan, set up a debit account ("Dining Dollars"), or pay by cash or credit card.

Many students prefer to eat in the many cafés and restaurants located in the area - there are lots and lots of choices and many different types of food.

Those staying in University dormitories can also cook in the shared kitchen areas.

Please see the Columbia Dining site for more information.
