Your guide to dining at the U

By Life@TheU
There are a number of on-campus dining options as well as nearby retail food spots that can satiate your hunger.

Whether you’re looking for the hours of operations on the Coral Gables campus or want tips on where to get your mid afternoon cafecito fix, here’s a roundup of what you need to know about dining at the U.

 

Coral Gables campus
With plenty of options in the Hurricane Food Court, there’s something for every diet and craving but the retail options are not limited to the heart of campus, as you’ll see on this handy map of the Gables campus. Also located in the Hurricane Food Court, the Faculty Club offers UM faculty and staff the option of bringing guests to enjoy themed buffet lunches each day of the week. Hint: Snag a free dessert on Fridays with the purchase of two entrées.

Looking for a flexible, economic way to dine on campus? Purchase a meal plan and enjoy the buffet-style variety serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the residential dining halls, located at Hecht-Stanford and Mahoney-Pearson residential colleges.

Based out of the Gables One Tower? Head downstairs to Spot Café for your pastelito fix or take a nice walk to a nearby retail dining spot off US1.

Rosenstiel campus
You’d be hard-pressed to find a nicer spot to dine than at Salt Waterfront Restaurant on Virginia Key. Enjoy a casual dining experience and friendly-priced lunch specials. Stick around for happy hour to watch the sunset at the Wetlab—a student-run bar that opens at 5 p.m. from Wednesday through Friday. Craving something else? Drive a few miles down past Crandon Park and you’ll find plenty of retail spots at Key Biscayne with more options, all without having to head back to the mainland.
