CSUN offers a variety of foods in 21 locations around campus, from fast food restaurants to coffee houses, and even a sports bar located in the University Student Union.

The food court in the Matador Bookstore Complex gives students the option to choose from Burger King, El Pollo Loco, Juice It Up, or Panda Express, while the Marketplace, located in Sierra Center, includes a more diverse food selection at restaurants such as Bamboo Terrace, Cilantro’s, Greens, and Pizzazz.

Are you looking for a stimulating caffeine fix? Head over to one of the six Freudian Sip locations around campus. Do you need to grab a quick bite to eat? The university has five convenience stores throughout CSUN.

If you’re looking to enjoy a burger and beer while catching the Laker’s game after a long, tedious day in class, head over to the Pub Sports Grill for an evening of food and sports with your classmates. Student Housing also offers several options at Geronimo’s, the school’s dining hall.

Geronimo’s offers an all-you-can-eat menu, which includes an assortment of foods, as well as international themed menu items every Wednesday and Steak Day every Thursday. CSUN also introduced Bamboo Terrace at Geronimo’s last fall, a 250-seat Pan-Asian restaurant featuring foods such as Vietnamese pho, Korean kalbi (short ribs), Chicken Tikka, Vegetable Samosa, Pad Thai and Thai curries.
