When you’re moving out for the first time on your own, you may feel intimidated. You have to do your own laundry, keep your dorm room clean and find your own meals. Fortunately, Grand Canyon University has made it easy to grab yummy meals every day of the week! We offer delicious dining options in our Student Union, Thunder Alley and around campus, plus a variety of meal plans to help make campus dining even easier. You won’t have to worry about heading off campus to find your next meal–we’ve brought some of the most popular eateries in the country right here to you:

The Grill 360

Conveniently located on the first floor of the Student Union, The Grill 360 is the place to go when your hunger is out of control. This all-you-can-eat cafeteria features a Mongolian Wok-style station, pizza station, salad bar, dessert station and more. 


Who doesn’t love chicken? Our campus Chick-fil-A offers all of the classic menu items, including chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, waffle fries and salads.


Enjoy fresh sandwiches and veggies every day of the week at our campus Subway. They serve up all of your favorite sandwiches, customized with your favorite toppings!

Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt

Enjoying a cup of frozen yogurt is the perfect way to stay cool during a hot Phoenix summer! Fill your cup with the flavors of your choice and add toppings to customize your treat.
