Places to Eat

PACES Dining Services offers more dining facilities than any other SUNY campus its size.

We have lots of different options, so you never get bored with your choices. PACES is not your typical food service.

Explore the different facilities- from traditional resident hall style all you care to eat dining to a la carte food kiosks and gourmet cafes. If you are a student on a meal plan, you can use your plan at any campus dining location. Campus visitors can use cash or debit/credit card.

Each dining unit has unique aspects- from your not so typical residential dining hall at Lehman's with its all you care to eat value- offering a cook to order dairy and gluten free station at dinner - to a breakfast smoothie bar in the Student Union.

PACES Dining Services holds special events, tastings and theme dinners at different locations throughout the semester. Check SPW or sign up for the PACES Twitter feed to get the latest news.

Welcome to the world of PACES campus Dining. The choice is yours!
