Campus Dining

Diverse Options All Around Campus

Philadelphia is known for its exceptional restaurants, and University City is no different. In addition to many local businesses, Drexel Campus Dining offers its own variety of dining concepts and locations — ensuring that our University City Campus is full of options for just about every taste.

Dining Options at Drexel

Around Drexel, there are numerous campus dining options to match any appetite and even dietary preferences. There are two all-you-care-to-eat dining locations — the Handschumacher Dining Center, also known as "the Hans," and Urban Eatery, offering seven different stations showcasing a variety of healthy and both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options. Kosher dining is available at The Café in the Perelman Center for Jewish Life. And when you're looking for some familiar name brands, the Northside Dining Terrace is the place to go. Plus, our dietitian and chefs can help personalize and create a menu that fits your lifestyle.
