Chicago Dining Favorites

Students at a restaurant in Albany ParkWhen you’re on our campus, we encourage you to enjoy a meal in our dining hall, which has been recently renovated and offers a wide range of meal options to fit every dietary need. You can also enjoy a meal, snack, or beverage from Einstein Bros Bagels, located on the first floor of the Johnson Center, or grab a to-go option at Viking Café near the gymnasium.

When you want to get off campus for a meal, though, the options are innumerable. This is a world-class city, and North Parkers love to take advantage of restaurants you can’t find anywhere else. Our own Albany Park neighborhood boasts scores of ethnic restaurants, and easy public transportation connects students and visitors to Chicago's other notable dining spots, all across the city.
