Dining Services

One of the best parts of living on campus is that you’ll never go hungry.

The dining hall in McIntosh Center is open seven days a week for all-you-can-eat meals. Here, food stations serve up home-cooked style dishes, fresh deli sandwiches, vegan and vegetarian options, pizza, desserts, and more. Click here for meal plan information.

Food shouldn’t be boring, and we try to mix it up with fun events in the dining hall. From national food days to our pop-up restaurant-styled elite events, we keep it interesting in McIntosh. We also host special dinners to celebrate holidays, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Parents, you can even surprise your student with a Gift from Home, easily ordered from the Dining Services website! Try making a smoothie with our Blender Bikes, pedal-powered smoothie machines. We also have Steak Night, Luau Night and Chef's Fare. It’s all part of making ONU feel just like home.

Your dining experience is more than great food. It is a community experience centered on culinary expertise, fresh ingredients, healthy options and a shared sense of environmental and social responsibility. Sodexo, ONU's partner in Dining Services, is committed to creating the best possible dining experience on campus. Join us to experience the comfort, convenience, outstanding food and inviting atmosphere designed especially for you.
