Food Options

We understand the importance of providing food options for our students, and it is a top priority for the College to determine a comprehensive food service solution for this upcoming academic year. While this process is ongoing, we wanted to share several food options that are currently available:

On Campus

  • Food Trucks: A variety of food trucks will be available on the Century College campus throughout the Fall Semester. View the Student Calendar for more information.
  • The Connection on East and West Campuses: Perfect for quick and convenient snacking or a small meal. Find affordable grab-to-go items like granola bars, trail mix, yogurt and even microwavable options such as ramen noodle cups, ravioli, and macaroni and cheese. West Connection has frozen/microwavable foods such as breakfast and lunch sandwiches, hot pockets, and pot pies. West Connection is conveniently located in the student center (The Nest) on West campus, room 1205. East Connection is located in the Kopp student area on East campus, room 1710.
  • Bookstore: Beyond academic essentials, our Bookstore stocks a variety of grab-and-go sandwiches, noodle bowls, a wide variety of chips and candy, beef sticks, breakfast bars, and a large assortment of bottled water, enhanced water, tea, energy drinks, and soda. The Bookstore is located on West campus, room 1320.
  • Vending Machines: Located across both campuses, our vending machines have in stock chips, chocolates, and drinks for when you’re on the move.
  • Microwaves: Warm up your meals or snacks from home. Microwaves are available for student use on both East and West campuses, conveniently located near the cafeteria areas.

Don’t forget to check the events calendar to see if any clubs or organizations are offering free food!
