Union Drive Marketplace
The Union Drive Marketplace is located on the west side of campus in the Union Drive neighborhood. The dining center conveniently serves students living in Friley, Eaton, Martin, and Helser Halls, as well as other students and visitors to the west side of campus. The spacious, multi-venue facility offers guests more than just a meal, but a place to choose a breakfast, lunch, or dinner prepared perfectly to their liking.
Enjoy a hot homestyle breakfast, including daily prepared eggs, breakfast casseroles, pancakes, French toast, and more. You will also be able to create your own custom omelet at our omelet bar. If you just don't have time for a traditional breakfast, you can get a doughnut or other homemade breakfast pastry, make your own waffle creation or grab a bagel from our waffle bar, or choose from large variety of breakfast cereals on our breakfast cereal bar. We'll have everything you need fresh and ready each morning to help you get your day started right.
For lunch and dinner, choose a meal like Mom used to make at Country Cuisine; create your own quesadilla or dine on Mongolian stir-fry at Wok Your Way; grab an Italian treat at Oregano's; or enjoy some burgers and fries at the Backyard Grill. You will also want to check out our Sweet Temptations dessert bar, The Farmer's Market salad bar, and Fresh Choices delicatessen, where you can get a made-to-order deli sandwich topped with your favorite fresh vegetables. And, don't forget the waffle and cereal bars, which are open all day...not just for breakfast.
