North Dining Hall
North Dining has one of two Starbucks locations on campus; all-day breakfast; quick-serve pasta and pizza and a create-your-own pasta station; BBQ spot for rotisserie, pulled pork and chicken; an in-house bakery for doughnuts and other baked goods; and the Top-9 Allergen free area with custom bowls, sandwiches, stir fry, pizza, salads made to specifications. Like most dining locations, North includes several grab-and-go stations with pre-made wraps and salads, sushi, granola bars and other snacks. If you’re in a rush, grab a quick snack and miss the long lines.
The Atrium houses Chick-fil-A, Papa John’s, Boar’s Head Deli, Vivimos Fresh Mexican Grill and the McKinley Grille. Chick-fil-A and Papa John’s serve classics from their menu. Boar’s Head Deli is a create-your-own sandwich, wrap, flatbread, or salad station. Vivimos serves all the classic Mexican-style options in taco, salad, burrito bowl or nacho form. The McKinley Grille serves the classics for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pancakes, bacon, biscuits and gravy for breakfast, and all types of burgers, fish and chips, tenderloins and baked potatoes for lunch and dinner.
The Student Center
In the Student Center is Ball State’s second Starbucks location and only on-campus Taco Bell—which also serves their famous breakfast. The salad bar is a popular choice to add variety, color and hearty toppings to your greens. Add a bowl of soup, yogurt parfait, fruit cup or make your own snack mix. The Student Center Tally also has a stir fry station, Grill—which serves meat or meatless burgers and sandwiches or chicken tenders—and Homestyle, which offers your favorite homey comfort foods.
Woodworth offers students a wide variety of food options all day long, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Grab a sweeter breakfast and coffee from Patisseries, stop by Della Casa for a brick oven pizza or Italian classic, or hit up Woody’s Grill for a hamburger or chicken sandwich. Deli World offers custom salads and sandwiches for a lighter lunch or dinner, Comfort Zone has the comfort food down with mac and cheese, turkey, or chicken and noodles, and Sushi with Gusto offers a variety of sushi options or a custom poke bowl—and ramen too!
Before a study session, grab a coffee of all kinds and flavors, donuts, bagels or fruits and lunch items later in the day. If you want to save a few bucks between classes, grab a latte here instead of Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts.
Multicultural Center Ice Cream Shop
Just east of Bracken is the Multicultural Ice Cream Shop! They serve 16 flavors of ice cream, shakes, sundaes or ice cream sandwiches. They also have dairy-free options and sorbet!
Starship Delivery Robots
Ball State has robots that deliver food right to your door step. These emission-free robots can deliver food when you order it on the Starship Delivery app. Delivery robots come with anti-theft devices and are monitored by employees at the dining facilities.
