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.
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.
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.

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).
Liberty offers two meal plans for students: Freedom Dining and Freedom Dining PLUS+.
- Both Freedom Dining plans offer unlimited access to Liberty’s main dining hall, The Food Court at Reber-Thomas. With either plan, you will also receive $200 per semester ($120 Dining Dollars and $80 Flames Cash). And both plans give you 10 swipes per week!
- The Freedom Dining plan’s swipes can be used at select locations on campus, while the Freedom Dining PLUS+ plan allows swipes at any location for select menu items.
