Eating on campus not limited to just dining halls

If you're ready to break away from your new-found diet of instant noodles and yesterday's pizza, there are plenty of on-campus alternatives, with UF offering choices ranging from sushi to Starbucks.

Gator Dining Services, UF's official food service provider, satiates students' appetites with more than 35 dining options.

It offers a variety of fast food chains, including Burger King, Wendy's, Chick-fil-A and Taco Bell.

But fine dining is also available in Camellia Court Cafe` at the Harn Museum of Art and the Arredondo Room at the Reitz Union.

The two main dining halls to chow down at are the Broward Dining Center and Gator Corner Dining Center.

Both halls offer all-you-can-eat meals with foods influenced by Mediterranean, Latin and American tastes.

Menu items include anything from Indian-style tandoori chicken to beef lo mein.

Both dining halls also cater to vegan students and have been ranked by PETA for their excellence.

To grab a quick snack between classes, students can visit Little Hall Express or Pugh Hall's Chomp and Go for sandwiches and smoothies, as well as chips and treats to munch on in your next class.

Graham Oasis and Beaty Market are two food stores located in residence halls.

Their candy selection is first-rate, and both are convenient when you have the munchies in your dorm.

And with five Starbucks on campus, some open until 4 a.m. during exam week, UF students never have to look far for their caffeine fix.

A Chili's Too and Moe's Southwest Grill just opened in the Racquet Club Dining Center adjacent to the Student Recreation and Fitness Center.

Chili's Too will offer a smaller version of the popular restaurant's menu, while Moe's will have all the favorites minus the kids menu.

The Orange and Brew, attached to the Reitz Union, sells beer (for those of age) and sandwiches and frequently hosts events for students at night.

Several recent changes to UF meal plans have brought the total number of dining program options to eight.

The new commuter meal membership gives students who live off campus the ability to eat on campus at a discounted rate.

Over the summer, The Olam restaurant opened at Hillel serving kosher food to UF and the community.

For those who aren't willing to sign a contract for a set allotment of meals per week, most establishments on campus will take a declining balance from your Gator 1 Card, cash or plastic.
