The main dining hall in the Catherine Burrow Refectory

Campus Dining

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, all with extended hours, that will keep you happily eating on campus:

Catherine Burrow Refectory - "The Rat" recently underwent a major renovation that added a new dining hall and grand servery, featuring a bakery, a brick pizza oven, a cook-to-order food station, and a fireside lounge. It offers fresh food stations where you can get traditional meat and vegetables, pasta, vegetarian and vegan, Asian, and seasonal fruits for lunch and dinner. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

The Lynx Lair - Located in the Bryan Campus Life Center, the newly renovated Lynx Lair is a casual dining venue and pub with sushi, classic Memphis entrees, gourmet sandwiches, pizza, grab and go items, and grain bowls made-to-order. 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 - This hub of activity, serving local French Truck coffee, is open 7 days a week, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. 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.

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 unlimited meals per week for residential students and 5, 7, 15, or unlimited meals per week for commuting students—whichever plan best fits your needs. Use your meal plans at “The Rat,” Lynx Lair, and the Middle Ground.
