Dining & Housing

From Sandwiches to Sushi

With more than two dozen eating locations offering a variety of foods, Carnegie Mellon's Dining Services serves up just about any fare students might crave. From sushi and Indian food to Kosher options and fresh salads, there's something for every palate.

Flexible meal plans offer students on-campus and off-campus choices, including restaurants affiliated with Carnegie Mellon like regional favorite Eat'n Park and the national chain Subway. A full-time nutritionist can also help students with smart eating. For more information, visit the Dining Services pages.

Carnegie Mellon’s original campus design is said to have been modeled after a ship by the campus’s initial architect Henry Hornbostel. An actual ship's prow taken from the historic cruiser, the USS Pennsylvania, rests atop Roberts Hall, which overlooks Panther Hollow and the Carnegie Museum complex.
