Wright State University has two dining halls on campus: the Union Market and the Hangar. 

The Union Market is located in the Student Union and is open from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

There is also Bowl Life, which is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tim Hortons is located next to the Union Market and is open 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

The Hangar is located in Allyn Hall and is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

There is a Starbucks located on the first floor of the Dunbar Library that is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

Rey Rey Cafe in Rike Hall is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The Raider Mart is next to Honors Hall and is open Monday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m., Friday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 12 a.m. 

Students opinions 

Jessica Rutkowski is a missionary at the Catholic Campus Ministry who expressed the difference between WSU and other universities.

“It seems pretty deserted most of the time, which is kind of hard if you’re in a rush. I’m not in a rush, but it’s pretty different from other colleges that I’ve been to,” Rutkowski stated. 

According to Rutkowski, the dining halls do have options for everyone, but Rutkowski prefers to bring packed lunches from home as some of the pricing is very high for the healthier options. 

Jebadiah Patterson and Kalli Koppin are both first-year students. Both Patterson and Koppin enjoy the options on campus, especially the sushi and Tim Hortons.

According to Patterson, between the Union Market, Tim Hortons, the Hangar and Raider Mart, dining services cover all the bases. 

“I wish the Hangar was open a little later, only for the fact that I live in The Woods, so it’s more convenient to just go there instead of the other side of campus,” Koppin mentioned.

Jeffery Henderson, cashier and contractor for WSU, loves working at the dining halls. 

“Oh, I’ve had so much fun here, for real,” Henderson said.
