Three Places to Dine on Campus

Oxford students enjoy a wide variety of menu offerings across three locations on campus: the Oxford Café, Oxford Family Kitchen, and Oxpresso.

The Oxford Café

The Oxford Café is the residential dining hall at Oxford College. Stations include Classics offering a different hot entree each day, Herbivore, which features our vegan and vegetarian fare, Taqueria, which features international cuisine, and the Grill, which offers burgers, grilled chicken, hot dogs, french fries, and a daily special. In addition, there is a made-to-order deli, an expansive double-sided self-serve salad bar, hand-tossed brick-oven pizza, self-serve pasta, and house-made soup, as well as an expansive dessert and candy bar available every day.

Guests of the Oxford Café are encouraged to enjoy as much as they’d like while dining in with us. Food removed from the premises is generally limited to one piece of hand-held fruit or a hand-held dessert item. The dining hall serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Sunday. 


Oxpresso, located in the Oxford library, is our campus coffee house. It serves drip coffees, expresso drinks, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries, and for those on the go, quick grab breakfast and carry-out lunch options. In addition to sandwiches and salads, Oxpresso offers fresh sushi daily and they have a wide selection of specially selected international snacks available. Students can use a residential meal swipe to purchase breakfast from Oxpresso daily until 11:00 a.m.

Oxford Family Kitchen

Oxford Family Kitchen, or OFK, located next to the bookstore in the Oxford Student Center, is our primary retail location. OFK's menu varies from rice bowls to chicken sandwiches, and they offer weekly specials that span the globe. Open until 10:00 p.m. Sunday–Thursday, OFK provides Oxford’s community a late night meal option after the dining hall has closed. Students can use a residential meal swipe to purchase lunch from OFK Monday–Friday until 2:00 p.m.
