Housing and Dining: The Taste of LSU

Louisiana is known for its good times and good food. LSU Dining lives up to that tradition with award-winning dining halls and several other restaurant options to serve the university population. The 5 and 459 dining halls, located on each end of campus, offer buffet-style meals accessible for all diets and food preferences and an exceptional dining staff willing to work with you to ensure that all dietary needs are accommodated. Restaurants such as McDonald's, Chik-fil-A, Subway, CC's Coffee Shop and Smoothie King provide students with even more options throughout their day.

Students can use their meal plans at any of these locations at almost any time of day to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner or even just a quick snack to make sure they have the fuel they need to focus on their academics.
