There are many big adjustments that come with leaving home and heading to college for the first time. Students have to adapt dorm living, navigate a new campus, and face college level classes. However, one of the biggest struggles I faced was losing the luxury of having home cooked meals from mom and dad. Luckily, Rutgers University not only has four different dining halls on each campus, but also offers a variety of different eateries that accept Rutgers meal swipes.
- Cook Cafe
- The Cook Cafe is designed similar to a convenience store (think wawa!). Students can order their meal through a kiosk and customize in anyway that they desire.
- Douglass Cafe
- Douglass Cafe has its very own deli in addition to a “build your own burrito” bar.
- Harvest at IFNH
- Harvest at IFNH is located in the Food, Nutrition, and Health Building. This is a new meal swipe option for students where they can choose between a variety of meals created from student grown food. All of the food is designed in an effort to use a minimal amount of processed ingredients.
- Woody’s Cafe
- Woody’s Cafe offers prepackaged options for students on the go, in addition to having a grill menu for students looking to dine in. This cafe is located in the Kessler Teaching Building.
- Kilmer’s Market
- Kilmer’s Market is an on-campus grocery store for students. It is also home to a “create your own salad” bar and premade or custom sandwiches.
- Rock Cafe
- Located in the Livingston Student Center, Rock Cafe offers grab and go premade items while also having a deli or grill options.
- Henry’s Diner
- Modeled after a classic New Jersey diner, Henry’s offers every food option you would expect to see on a typical diner menu.
All Five Campus Locations:
- Knight Wagon
- Rutgers is famously known for its grease trucks and the Knight Wagon provides all of those options and more. They offer a student combo which includes a main menu item, fries, and a drink.
- Starbucks Truck
- One of only six in the country, the Starbucks truck offers every drink that you would see in a regular Starbucks store. It travels between each campus throughout the week.
