Dining on Campus
value in the nation among public colleges & universities (Consumers Digest)
As an active student at Truman State University, we know you have a busy schedule so we take care of your dining needs for you. Whether you want an omelet prepared just the way you like it or you're in the mood for home-style food, we have something for everyone. And to make it even easier, your meal plan and dining dollars can be added to your student ID so you don't have to worry about carrying cash.
Enjoy Home-Style Meals
If you want variety, you will find it at Mainstreet Market in the Student Union Building. This food-court style dining option features burgers, pizza, hot entrees, soup and salad bar, and more. In addition to hot breakfast items, you can design your favorite omelet.
Finding your favorite foods on campus is a snap at one of the dining rooms located within three of the residence halls — Centennial Hall, Missouri Hall and Ryle Hall. These all-you-care-to-eat buffets make it easy to find what you need with fresh fruit and salads, deli choices served on freshly baked bread, hot home-style entrees, and much more. Meals plans for the residence hall cafeterias are also available to students who do not live in a residence hall.
Coffee & Pastries
Enjoy your favorite hand-crafted hot and cold beverages plus snacks at Starbucks located in the heart of campus on the main level of Pickler Memorial Library. And if you walk past Jazzman's Café on the main level in the Student Union Building, you can't help but enjoy the smell of fresh brewed coffee and fresh baked pastries.
Salads, Soup, Sandwiches & Desserts on the Go
When you need to get a quick bite to eat, stop by Zime, a bistro located right next to Jazzman's Café in the Student Union Building. Featuring simple fare that's ideal for busy students, you can get sandwiches made to order, soups, salads, and fresh-baked pastries like flavored croissants. Food is served quickly, and Zime's daily- and weekly-changing items provide plenty of variety.
When you need some little extras, great munchies or a quick grab-and-go treat, you can drop by one of the convenience stores located in two of the University's residence halls — Dobson Hall and West Campus Suites.
