There is no shortage of places to eat here at the University of New Hampshire. There are all types of dining locations, with everything from restaurants downtown, to grab-and-go stores like Zeke’s Café in Dimond Library or Union Court in the Memorial Union Building (MUB). However, arguably the most popular places to eat around campus are the three major dining halls. There is Philbrook, located near “The Timbers” and the freshman dorms Williamson and Christensen Halls; Stillings, located near “The Hills” and particularly popular among Stoke Hall residents; and Holloway Commons, the largest of the three which is centrally located and attached to the MUB. All three dining halls offer allergen-friendly stations, stir-fry, pizza, dessert, sandwich and salad bars.
Philbrook ‘Philly’ Dining Hall
Specifically located at 29 McDaniel Drive, Philly is all one level, with booth-style seating, tables and a separate breakfast dining room. Philly is known for its all-day breakfast bar, which offers omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, egg scrambles or pancakes made-to-order. The dining hall’s specialties also include toasted subs and a cook-to-order round Mongolian grill for stir-fry. If the breakfast bar isn＊t the feature that makes Philly a favorite among many, it＊s probably the late-night service offered Sunday-Wednesday.
Holloway Commons ‘HoCo’ Dining Hall
Central to campus at 75 Main St., HoCo has recently undergone extensive remodeling that increased the dining hall’s capacity by over 365 seats. Filling and decorating the multi-million dollar addition to HoCo is a custom-designed table made of reclaimed metal railings from the original dining hall, featuring a controllable LED lighting system. The addition is also filled with matching recycled chairs. Specialties of the dining hall include a weekly sushi bar and brick-oven pizza.
Stillings Dining Hall
Stillings, located at 20 Ballard St., has a comfortable, open setting with panoramic views of the surrounding “Hills” area. It has daily specialty bars, a rotisserie grill, a deli and toasted sub station and a Sunday night wing bar. Stillings’ pizza has been voted the best on campus by students.
