Meal Plans

Living where you learn means that eventually, you’ll need to eat. No worries! Temple University has three dining centers on Main Campus: 
  • The Louis J. Esposito Dining Center (adjacent to our Johnson and Hardwick Residence Halls), a more traditional dining option which serves all-you-care-to-eat options including global cuisine, sandwiches, burgers and a fresh salad bar.
  • The Morgan Hall Dining Complex offers an all-you-care-to-eat facility with student favorites on the second floor and popular brands like Tony Luke’s and Pleasant News on the ground floor. 
  • The new Valaida S. Walker Food Court opening in Fall of ’17 is located at the Howard Gittis Student Center. The new Food Court features seven national brands, including Chick-fil-A, Twisted Taco, Burger Fi and Which Wich, allowing students to use meal equivalency on the brands they crave most!
