Eat Up!

At SMU, you’ll find delicious food that you can savor in a variety of food options at both Lee Dining Hall, in Umphrey Lee Center, and Arnold Dining Commons, which are all-you-care-to-eat residential restaurants that accommodate most dietary needs and preferences.


Dining room

If you're on the go, grab a quick bite at Hughes-Trigg Student Center where you’ll find Chick-fil-A, Panera Bread or The Market, a fully stocked convenience store with Rollin’ n Bowlin’ Acai Bowl located inside and more. Or take a study break to meetup with friends at Starbucks in the Fondren Library.

We do have great food on the Hilltop, but Dallas is a gastronomic hot-spot and total foodie paradise. From Michelin-starred chefs, to drool-worthy Texas BBQ, and the ever-evolving offerings at the restaurant incubator, Trinity Groves, you'll never run out of options to eat.
