Badgers love food! That’s a fact. Go ahead, check it. I dare you.

Tuns out that Brock students Badgers love food too! It’s a good thing then that there are plenty of places to eat on Campus! Let’s look at some of them:

1. Residence Dining Halls

DeCew and Lowenberger Residences each have a dining hall in the building that is, in most cases, open until 1am on every week day! That means that you can take a study break any time of the week, even into most of the wee hours of the morning! Each dining hall offers something a little different from the other, so I would suggest eating at both for a new change every once in a while.. (try the waffles in DeCew!!)

With the late closing hours however, that means that the Residence Dining Halls are closed on the weekends…I know, I know now you’re asking yourself “Where the heck am I supposed to eat then, Iain?” well little Badgers, fear not! There are plenty more options for students eating on campus on the weekends.

2. The Guernsey Marketplace

The Guernsey Marketplace, otherwise known as: “The Market” is named after Mjr. Gen. Sir Isaac Brock’s mother country, Guernsey (a little island in the English Channel Islands). The Market has a plentiful amount of food available for those hungry badgers, everything from calzones, to stir-fry to sweet potato burritos! Offering breakfast, lunch and a hot entree dinner the food is reasonably well priced and incredibly tasty! Be sure to try out the award winning butter tarts when you’re perusing through the Market!

3. The Hungry Badger

The Hungry Badger, the newest dining hall is located in the Walker Complex, our primary athletic facility here at Brock. More than any of the other cafeterias, this “half-caf” (half the size of the other cafeterias around campus) has the healthier alternatives available to students, including: more protein options, an entire refrigerator full of chocolate milk; a full-functioning salad bar; and much, much more! Be sure to try out the teriyaki while you’re visiting the Walker Complex!

4. Union Station

Run by the Brock University Students’ Union, Union Station has plenty of on-the-street eats available for all Brock students. Everything from Subway, to Booster Juice, to Burrito Boyz is offered at Union Station; open during University business hours during the week. Although not available on the meal plan options, these eateries are run by and for students, so it’s a great place to apply for a job after becoming acquainted with the Brock campus!

5. Tim Hortons

Again, not on meal plan, however there are a couple of Tim Hortons’ locations on campus and it’s a great place to go for a quick energizing coffee or a light refreshing tea to take to class and keep you awake and learning!

All sorts of other little places like cafés are available to students on campus, maybe make it a little challenge for yourself to check out all of them while you’re here at Brock!

Brock on Badgers!


About Iain

Hello Future Badgers! My name is Iain, and I am a fourth year Concurrent Education I/S B.A./B.Ed. student (teaching subjects in Drama & History) and Head Resident in the Residence Department here at Brock! First thing’s first, I love this newfound second home that I call Brock and I’m hoping I can pass off all of that love to all of you! This summer I spent an incredible four weeks teaching and living at an Outdoor Education Camp in the Algonquin Highlands and would love to tell you all about it! Through the experiences as an actively involved University student here at Brock, I have seen that maintaining a social life, as well as an academic life is just as important to becoming a well-rounded and balanced student (it’s almost like eating both your fruits and vegetables!) In the coming months, I hope to pass this knowledge on to you, to ensure that your love of all things Brock grows strong. Brock On Badgers!
