Campus Dining

Students and visitors have 19 dining options available to them on the SDSU campus.

Located inside the University Student Union are 10 different dining options, and Union Coffee, which proudly serves Starbucks coffee. Students can choose from popular restaurants such as Chic-Fil-A, Extreme Pita and Panda Express, along with The Market, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Coffee and Weary Wil’s Sports Grille.

The Dairy Bar is a must-stop during a campus visit. SDSU Students make ice cream in over 60 different flavors, which can be sold as scoops or half gallon containers. Located on the west side of campus, connected to the Davis Dairy Plant, visitors can see ice cream being made in the store. Visitors can also purchase from a selection of cheese and meat at the Dairy Bar, also made by SDSU students. Coffee, snacks and other ice cream treats are sold there as well.

Larson Commons, which connects Young and Binnewies halls, has an all-you-can-eat buffet with several different options to choose from.  Students can use block or flex dollars on their meal plan to eat at the buffet. In Larson Commons is also a C-Store, where students can use flex or Hobo Dough to purchase grocery items. Erbert and Gerbert’s, a sandwich shop is located inside the C-Store as well.

Residents that live in Hansen Hall have access to their own C-Store as well. While smaller in size, the facility offers similar products and has an Erbert and Gerbert sandwich shop also.

If students are looking for a caffeine fix, but don’t feel like trekking to the University Student Union, there are two other coffee shop locations on campus. Cottonwood Coffee, a local chain has a location in Ben Reifel Hall. They offer drinks that can be found at their two other Brookings locations. A Java City location inside of Wagner Hall not only has coffee, but quick snacks and sandwiches for students as well. This location is open during class hours for the perfect pick-me-up.
