Part of Living Well is Eating Well

Dining options at Holy Family University are flexible, in keeping with the practical needs of our students and staff. We offer tiered meal plans to provide for the needs of commuters as well as those in residence. Our primary dining hall preparing fresh meals is the Tiger Café, found in the Campus Center. The smaller Cub Café is located in the Education Technology Building. Note that each facility maintains different hours and menus. We increasingly source foods from local providers whenever possible. If you have dietary preferences/restrictions, please tell us.


It's All About the Food

The Kitchen Office is located in the Campus Center, on the First Floor. The Catering Office is located in the Campus Center, Room 207, on the Second Floor.
