Dining will be an important part of your NIU experience, so we want to make it pleasurable and easy to manage. We'll help you optimize your overall experience, guide you in your meal plan selection, and offer convenient places to eat both on and off campus. We'll even help you make informed meal planning decisions by providing nutritional and allergen information for the food we serve in our All You Care to Eat dining centers. Remember those convenient places to eat? Let us show you what those places are, where they are, and if Flex Dollars and Huskie Bucks are welcome!

That's not all! From residential dining centers, to retail, and even catering, Campus Dining Services manages it all. So whether you're looking for a snack, meal, or employment opportunity, we're here to serve you.
