It’s hard to learn on an empty stomach. Luckily, with the top-rated food service in the SUNY system, that’s not a problem at Potsdam!

SUNY Potsdam’s PACES Dining Services is routinely rated #1 of all the 27 state-operated colleges and universities in the SUNY Student Opinion Survey—having earned this distinction three times in a row! In the 2018-19 Best Campus Food Survey by Niche, SUNY Potsdam ranked 110th in the entire country out of 1,382 public and private institutions. SUNY Potsdam’s dining services were also recognized in Niche’s 2019 Best College Food in New York list, where the campus was ranked No. 8 in the state.

The biggest reason we do so well is by listening to our students, providing them nutritious and flavorful options, and catering to dietary restrictions and preferences at each on-campus dining location.
