Dining & Catering

Students have more options for dining than ever before with the addition of four new restaurants at the Student Union, along with the UL Dining Services' Cypress Lake Dining Room. Students and visitors to the Union can enjoy up to three meals a day in the Cypress Lake Dining Room on the second floor of the Student Union, overlooking scenic Cypress Lake through the plate glass windows or on the balcony dining area.

Get your caffeine fix with a Starbucks coffee at The Brew, our new cafe located just across from the Rose Garden residence halls, and stay to study in the attached lounge with convenient charging stations for your devices. Or, head down to the OCB (Original Burger Company) for a quick lunch to go. Adjacent to the OCB, you'll find Sidelines — our plate lunch counter that will satisfy your craving for South Louisiana traditional cooking. For a delicious sandwich, soup or potato, stop by McAlister's Deli.
