A Message from the Dean of Students OfficeKennesaw State University
There are several campus dining options for your student’s convenience whether they live on or off campus. All residential students receive a Meal Plan based on their credit hours. The cost of each Meal Plan is in addition to the cost of living on campus and will be charged to their student account each semester. Meal Plan changes may be made up to the drop/add deadline at dining.kennesaw.edu.
Students who live off campus may customize a Meal Plan from our Commuter Meal Plan options, including Dining Dollars, which can be used at any on-campus restaurant, and for discounted entry into The Commons and Stingers, our award-winning dining halls. Students can use their Meal Plan even when they don’t have time to dine in!
With our Takeout Club, students can take their favorite foods from The Commons and Stingers dining halls to go. To get started, they directly download the Takeout Club participation form from dining.kennesaw.edu and return it to the Meal Plan office. Then fill the reusable to-go box to the brim, eat, rinse and repeat!
University Dining is using the Grubhub app to make picking up orders at our on-campus eateries more convenient. Students can follow these simple steps to begin placing pick-up orders on their phone at either the Kennesaw or Marietta Campus.
1. Download the Grubhub app.
2. Select “Get Started” to set up your account.
3. Place your pick-up order during regular business hours.
4. Pre-pay using Dining Dollars, KCash, a credit card or debit card.
5. Pick up your order with ease and skip the line!
The Marietta dining hall features a variety of vignettes in an all-you-care-to-eat setting. Students can enjoy fresh pizzas and international cuisine at World Fare, custom subs and sandwiches at the BluePrint Deli, fresh salads and soups from Farm Basket, and made-from-scratch classics at the Down Home station.
Centrally located, The Commons is the main dining hall on campus and houses nine unique venues in its all-you-care-to-eat facility. Students can enjoy smoothies, specialty coffee drinks and more from The Grind Coffee Co., globally inspired but locally sourced fare is available at Globetrotter, and Apron Strings serves fried chicken every Thursday as part of its rotating selection of family favorites.
You will be familiar with several of our nationally branded restaurants located across both the Marietta and Kennesaw Campuses.
Kennesaw Campus: Moe’s, Panda Express
Both Campuses: Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, STACKS Sandwiches & Snacks, Hissho Sushi
Dining Dollars are accessed through the Talon Card. This declining balance account is used to purchase food at any on-campus eatery. By using Dining Dollars to pay for food and drink from restaurants on campus, your student will save on sales tax (6%). As an added benefit, Dining Dollars carry forward from the fall to spring semester. Students may check their balance and add Meal Plan entries and Dining Dollars to their account at dining.kennesaw.edu.
