On Campus Dining

Some of the Best College Memories Are Made Over Sharing Meals Together.

At Liberty, you can choose from a wide variety of eateries to suit your schedule, dining habits, and tastes.

With 24 dining locations across campus and a nationally ranked dining hall* that offers over 20 unique stations — including one dedicated to gluten- and allergen-free dishes — you’ll never get bored. And you’ll always have somewhere to make memories with your friends. 

*Our variety of healthy and wholesome dining options helped us earn a top 5 ranking from BestColleges.com for the past 3 years.

Reber Thomas Dining Hall


In the Fall of 2017, Liberty Dining Services made the switch to use Eco-Products, a company that provides 100% biodegradable flatware, plate ware, and cups. Their products are also BPA-free, compostable, and made from renewable energy sources such as cane sugar.
Our urban farming herb garden grows various types of herbs (such as basil, thyme, parsley, rosemary, and more) which are used in dishes served throughout the dining hall.
We use napkins that are made of 100% recycled paper, and our Xprss Nap dispenser encourages customers to take (and waste) fewer napkins.
92% of the chemicals Liberty Dining uses are “Green Seal” certified, concentrated, or sustainable.

We work closely with local produce distributors to purchase from local farms and dairies and participate in farm-to-school initiatives. Tracking local purchases helps us to meet our Better Tomorrow Plan commitment of 20% local purchase by 2020.

Our on-campus Argo Tea uses Caribou Coffee, which is rainforest certified, small batch crafted, and sourced from small farmers.

We are proud to feature 100% Transfair, Fair Trade USA certified aspretto coffee and 100% USDA certified organic and ethically sourced Numi teas. Everything that touches the product is green, from the 10% post-consumer fiber cups to the renewable resource stirrers to the fair trade sugar wrapped in recyclable paper and printed with vegetable dye.

Special Dietary Needs

From the general manager to front-line servers, we work diligently to address students’ specific needs, especially those with food allergies, Celiac disease, or special diet needs. In 2017, our program won Best Allergy Training at a University by Restaurant.org and AllerTrain.

Our award-winning Simple Servings station at the Food Court at Reber-Thomas offers meals prepared without gluten or seven of the most common food allergens: peanuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soybean, shellfish, and tree nuts. 

In 2019, Liberty was ranked in the Top 20 Best Dining for People with Allergies by BestColleges.com.

For those with a gluten intolerance, gluten-free pitas, pasta, buns, bread, pizza crust, and other gluten-free options are available at dining locations throughout campus. And our Gluten Intolerant Options Program (G.I.O.) allows students with a gluten dietary restriction to swipe for a gluten-free item at no additional charge (gluten-free options are available to students not enrolled in the G.I.O. for a small fee).
