Campus Dining Logos

At SMU, find food that you can savor! With an impressive selection of healthy options and comfort food - all freshly prepared - even the pickiest of palates can enjoy meals throughout campus. At Lee in Umphrey Lee Center, an all-you-care-to-eat residential restaurant, choose from International Street Fare, Comfort Kitchen, a produce market, pizza, pasta, omelets all day or the "Healthy on the Hilltop," featuring full meal solutions for those desiring vegan or made- without-gluten. At Arnold Dining Commons, take advantage of all-you-can-eat at nine different stations. Always fresh, never frozen, and prepared right in front of you, you can choose from salads, burgers, regional cuisine, brick-oven pizza, or home-cooked classics. If you're on the go, stop by Mac's Place in McElvaney Hall, to pick up a freshly made-to-order grill and pizza options and convenient grab-n-go choices. 

Looking for your favorite cup of coffee or chicken sandwich? SMU Dining has that covered, too. Among the hotspots are Chick-fil-A, SUBWAY, Einstein's Bros. Bagels, Campisi's Pizza, and The Market, a fully stocked convenience store. We also have a full Starbucks in Dedman Rec Center and the Fondren Library! For a more cozy environment, meet up with a friend at Lawyers Inn, located in Carr Collins Hall at the Law School Quad, for fresh brewed coffee, desserts, and lunch menu favorites.
