Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Never go hangry

Ever tried to study without coffee and plenty of snacks? Yeah, us neither. Food is life.

Not your high school cafeteria

The Trojan Marketplace in the Trojan Center (TC) is our main dining hall, where you'll find home-style entrées, fresh fruit and salads, pizza, baked goods, deli choices, and more—seven days a week. (Yes, pizza every day.)

The Marketplace policy is "all you care to eat," BTW. Not that it's a challenge.

Queue Up

Elsewhere in the TC, you can stop by the new Queue morning, noon, and night for made-to-order items from the grille. And, that full menu of Caribou Coffee items that our students have come to love? Queue has those, too. You can even order ahead and pick up for even more convenience.

Simply to Go

We get it. Sometimes sitting down for a meal isn't possible. Pop into the Bits 'N Bytes convenience store to pick up grab-and-go meals or items to cook for yourself in the residence hall kitchen.

Simply to Go items like fruit, salads, and wraps, bottled beverages, yogurt, and other snacks are now available at Habeger Science Center and Beacom Institute of Technology.

All on-campus dining options, including vending machines, accept Meal Plan Flex Dollars and Trojan Silver.

Manage your plan, peep the menu, and check dietary info on everything at MySodexo.
