St. John’s Queens Campus has a variety of dining options available. Most options are popular fast food joints, including Burger King, Red Mango, Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donut. There are also sandwich shops, baked potato bars, grab-and-go stores and more.
Though options are available, students aren’t always able to afford the on-campus prices. Students who are already paying over $40k for tuition aren’t able to pay $10 or $20 a day for food. Because of this, some students are asking St. John’s to lower campus food prices, or at least provide a viable alternative.
While students wait for St. John’s to take action, off-campus options are seen as attractive alternatives. A few food trucks offering $5 to $7 meals have set up shop outside of Gate 5.
