Hofstra University Dining Services
Quality, Consistency and Innovation at Every Turn
At Hofstra University we strive to exceed expectations by tailoring programs, services, and dining venues to meet the needs of the students and the entire Hofstra community. Through customer satisfaction surveys, focus groups, comment boards, and an open door policy, we encourage communication and feedback. This helps us better understand how to match our programs and services with the needs of the Hofstra University community. Our programs and services reflect the diversity and spirit of Hofstra University. There are multiple meal plan options available varying in points to fit any lifestyle on campus, for part-time and full-time students. In addition, we have plenty of eateries to choose from; Hofstra’s dining program boasts 20 retail restaurant locations as well as a 24 hour dining service. Each location has its own identity with numerous food platforms and a large variety of grab & go items that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.
Student Focused Dining
Sbarro’s is the newest addition to Hofstra’s dining program, back by popular demand. You can find a range of delicious Italian entrees like baked ziti and spaghetti, in addition to Sbarro’s famous pizza, at this eatery, now in the Student Center!
Hof USA is a newly renovated Dave and Buster-style entertainment venue that opened to the campus community. It is a unique dining location with an expanded menu derived from student-suggestions. Hofstra USA offers late-night hours, which fosters a sense of community by encouraging students to enjoy a “night-out,” right on campus.
In addition to the renovation of Hof USA, Dutch Treats, the 24/7 convenience store on campus was recently completely modernized and expanded. It now offers a larger selection of bottled beverages; hot Au Bon Pain soups and an increased variety of grab and go salads, sandwiches and snacks. Additionally, the entire store was remodeled with a fresh, modern and welcoming décor.
Nathan’s Restaurant is one of the newer additions to our dining locations. It is located inside the Netherlands Café next to Subway. The menu offers hot dogs, hamburgers, signature French fries, chicken tenders, grilled chicken sandwiches and so much more. While you are there, stop by Java Connect for a coffee, tea, fruit smoothie or try our delicious iced Bubble Tea. New for fall, Tavalon Bubble Tea is sure to be an afternoon delight!
If dining at the Student Center, make sure you try some of the new concepts and offerings. In addition to guest favorites like Nature’s Organic, Charcoals, Sono and the Omelet station, we have nightly specials, like Fresco Wednesdays or Steak Nights, and a dessert station that changes nightly.
Bits ‘n’ Bytes Café on the south side of campus is another great eatery, loaded with student favorites, like Picantes Mexican Cuisine, 2Mato Pizza, and even a Red Mango!
