You Really Do Want to Eat More Veggies!

At the University of Maryland, there are plenty of options for vegans, vegetarians, and those students that just enjoy eating their veggies! While there are plenty of options for unhealthy eating and treats on and around campus, the university works to have options for everyone and encourages healthy eating. My youngest daughter is a vegetarian and I worried that there were not enough food options for her, but she is always able to find food that she can eat and enjoy.

On-Campus Options

Since Fall 2016, every UMD dining hall offers many vegetarian and vegan selections. All dining halls have a dedicated vegan station, so students lookout for that area!

  • 251 North: This is the North Campus Dining Hall and it has its own vegan buffet. Students are offered vegan/vegetarian salads, sandwiches, and veggies burgers. Tell your student to be on the lookout for their vegan sushi rolls! They sometimes have mango rolls, cucumber rolls, tofu rolls, and more.
  • South Campus Diner: At the South Campus Dining Hall there are endless vegan and vegetarian options. One favorite among students is the stir-fry station. Here students can make a fully customizable stir-fry. They even have a vegetable-only surface!

Off-Campus Options

  • Blaze: Everyone loves pizza, and Blaze offers vegan mozzarella cheese so all customers can enjoy their amazing pizzas.
  • Busboys and Poets: This is a great restaurant located in Hyattsville, 10 minutes from College Park. Here they have delicious vegetarian and vegan options. Their Vegan Quesadilla and Vegan “Chicken” Stir Fry are some of the best vegan meals I have ever eaten!
  • NuVegan Café: This is one of the most popular vegan restaurants in College Park. This chain serves some of the best vegan soul food in the area. In addition to the great eats, they have a smoothie and juice bar.
  • Sweetgreen: If you like salads, this is your place. Sweetgreen is a salad chain that allows you to customize your meal and has a variety of options for those who are vegan or vegetarian.
