There's no need to leave campus to find all the dining options you want! The Dining Hall is located in the new Lackland Center and offers meal plans for every student.

Lackland features high top seating and booth-style seating, a gas fireplace and an abundant amount of flat screen TV’s that feature menus, games and other TV programming for your pleasure. We have a wide variety of foods to choose from each day, as well as late night hours and menus. From signature burgers and cheese steaks to salads and pizza. Take a break from it all and hang out with your friends & grab a bite to eat. Additionally, for our customers on the run, don’t forget about our Outtakes Convenience Store featuring fresh made prepackaged sandwiches and salads. All we ask is that all students and diners follow the dining hall regulations:
