Dining at Rhodes


Right now your mother is concerned about what you’re eating.

She’s got a point—if you’re running on empty, you won’t be able to think, grow or play. And because all those things are important at Rhodes, our dining options are designed to offer you variety, flavor, nutrition and convenience.

Three venues and counting—we’re getting creative.

We know it gets boring to eat the same kind of food at the same place every day, several meals a day. We’ve come up with three dining locations that will keep you happily eating on campus:

  • Catherine Burrow Refectory—“The Rat”—Offers fresh food stations where you can get traditional meat and vegetables, pasta, vegetarian and vegan, Asian, seasonal fruits and introducing a "Without Gluten Station" for lunch and dinner. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In conjunction with construction of a new residence hall, the Rat has just completed a major renovation. 
  • The Lynx Lair—Located in the Bryan Campus Life Center, the newly renovated Lynx Lair is a casual dining venue and pub with deli items, quesadillas, salads and more. The pub serves draft beer (proof of age required) in the afternoons and evenings. Open for lunch, dinner and late evening snacks. 
  • The Middle Ground—A 24/7 hub of activity, and not just because of the Starbucks coffee and tea drinks. This high-tech coffeehouse offers a wireless environment with six computers for checking email, four for general use, a plasma-screen television and comfortable seating. Serving specialty salads, gourmet sandwiches and coffee 24/7—and the common area is open around the clock.

Four meal plans to fit your dietary needs and budget.

Convenience and balanced choices make it hard to beat our campus dining options. Choose from 7 (East Village and Parkway House only), 15 and 21 meals per week for residential students and 5, 7, 15, or 21 for commuting students—whichever plan best fits your needs. Use your meal plans at “The Rat,” Lynx Lair and the Middle Ground.
