Purdue University-Main Campus Top Questions

Tell us about the food and dining options.


Purdue's Memorial Union has a wide variety of restaurants. These are in a fine central location and prove very handy during busy days. They offer both sit down style dining and a la carte. Purdue's dining courts offer excellent, buffet style food. The offerings are varied enough to appeal to any diet and all tastes. Menus are available online to tell students what will be offered on any given day. Many of the dining courts are staffed by chefs who have won awards. The Wiley Dining court in particular is run by a cook who holds multiple awards in barbecuing meat as well as coming up with original recipes. In short, nobody goes hungry at Purdue Dining Courts.


Our dining courts are honestly great options for on-campus and off-campus students alike! With five courts spread out throughout the residential parts of campus, there's a different twist on "traditional" food to be found around almost every corner. If you're looking to head off campus, we've got a lot of great chain restaurants and the Purdue staple -- Triple XXX burgers, home of the Purvis Burger (which is smothered with peanut butter!)
