Fill up at a dining hall. Visit an on-campus café. Explore the local restaurant scene. Wherever you go, you’ll find plenty of ways to fuel your campus visit.
All three of Michigan’s student union buildings are popular gathering places where you’ll find a variety of cafes, coffee shops and markets. Some are locally owned restaurants, some are MDining facilities and others are national brands. All accept major credit cards, Blue Bucks (U-M’s electronic “campus cash”) and Dining Dollars (included in campus meal plans).
Maizie’s, a new upscale kitchen and market, opened in 2018 at the Michigan League. This unique eatery features house-made entrees with a variety of sides, tempting desserts, cuisine from popular local restaurateurs, a selection of to-go dishes and a comfortable seating area with a view of the busy street scene just outside.
For specifics on hours and locations, visit the University Unions website.
The dining program at the University of Michigan is not only one of the largest collegiate food service operations in the nation, it’s also one of the best. The program includes seven full-service, allyou- care-to-eat residential dining halls and a network of 21 on-campus cafes, markets and pantries. In addition, a highly rated catering organization serves at more than 6,170 events each year.
Nutrition and Allergy Information
Online, digital and printed menus provide everything you need to know about nutrition and allergens for every item served in the dining halls and residential cafes. And a campus-wide system of icons helps to quickly identify dishes that are MHealthy, gluten-free, halal, kosher, vegan and vegetarian. On-staff registered dietitians are available to help students with nutrition questions or special dietary needs and gluten free pantries are located in every dining hall.
Fresh, Local and International
The MDining database contains more than 100,000 recipes so every dining hall meal includes many entrée options and plenty of variety. Most offerings are made from scratch and every effort is made to use fresh or locally sourced foods. Every day, international cuisines are offered to educate students about foods from different cultures and to help them become informed diners no matter where they go in life.
MDining employs more than 2,000 students to keep its campus-wide operations running smoothly. Students learn about customer service, time management and leadership. Each year, many students advance to leadership positions, with responsibility for managing the work of other students.
