Owens Dining Hall

Owens Dining Hall is one of the oldest dining facilities on campus. Currently, it houses several food choices, with colorful names like Bowl Dynasty, Frank's, and Sweet Temptations. It is a staple of on-campus dining, as it is often the most economical of the dining halls for all types of Meal Plans

Hokie Grill

Hokie Grill is one of the two Dining Halls on campus with food services provided by an external franchise or chain. Hokie Grill's food options are rather limited, with only a Pizza Hut, Chick-fil-a, Blue Ridge Barbeque, and the typical salad bar and to-go cooler of other dining halls. There is a nice stage in the space, and several large televisions always tuned to watch the Hokies sports teams.
