Dining Locations

Monarca Dining Hall (Formerly City Eats)

Monarca Dining Hall is the main dining commons for the residential community. Here you can enjoy all-you-care-to-eat dine-in options at a variety of cuisine platforms or you can grab a meal to go.

As an international student, it's been really difficult for me to get settled in and so not worrying about what I have to cook and eat every day has been a huge relief...and I just love the food that they offer.
