How to Find Food

At the Dining Halls:

Each campus has a dining hall. Checking out your campus’ dining hall should be at the top of your to do list!

College Avenue: Brower

Busch: Busch

Cook/Douglass: Neilson

Livingston: Livingston Dining Commons


All dining halls also offer take-out!


Special Use of Meal Swipes:

You can use your meal swipes at Douglass Cafe in the Douglass Campus Center (DCC) and in the Rock Cafe and Sbarros in the Livingston Student Center (LSC) during certain hours. Meal swipes can also be used at the Rutgers meal trucks that can be spotted parked all around campus!


RU Express

For those of you who have RU Express (Aka, money on your ID card that you can spend like a debit card), check out these campus restaurants that accept RU Express!



Use Scarlet Menus to find the menus of all local restaurants, organized by cuisine.


Some popular places on campus are:

Red Mango - A new fro-yo place that just opened up on Albany Street; only a short walk from the train station bus stop, and the loyalty program is great!

Hokkaido - A little hole-in-the-wall bubble tea shop that has some of the best milk tea, smoothies and slushies on campus, either for sit in or take out.

Rutgers Club – Enjoy a restaurant style meal for a meal swipe and $2 on Monday’s and Thursdays.

Au Bon Pain - Located next to the Rutgers Student Center, “ABP” is your one stop shop for coffee, wraps, snacks and baked goodies!
