Students dining

At SMU, you can savor a variety of delicious food with options at both Lee Dining Hall (in Umphrey Lee Center) and Arnold Dining Commons. Both 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 and The Market — a fully stocked convenience store that houses Rollin’ n Bowlin’ Acai Bowl and more. Or, take a study break to meet up with friends at Starbucks located 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 dining options.
