Something for everyone

All that studying can work up quite the appetite, and luckily Transy has you covered. Students can purchase a meal plan, either a 19-meal-per-week plan, a 14-meal per-week plan, a 10-meal per-week plan or a plan offering 160 meals per term. Special meals are available for students with medical needs. In addition, you can try some of the other great eateries on campus—like Jazzman’s Café or the Rafskeller.



Fondly known as “The Raf,” the Rafskeller is serving temporarily as the main campus cafeteria while the university builds its new campus center and dining hall. It offers a wide selection, including soft serve ice cream, classic entrees and vegetarian offerings. This location also features The Grille @ Transylvania and a Sub Connection. The Grille offers burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, french fries and all your grilled favorites. Sub Connection is a deli that specializes in made-to-order salads and subs on fresh baked breads.
