Better known as Plex to the Northwestern student body, this mid-campus dorm hosts two dining halls in one building.
Plex East is open every day, offering specials such as stir-fry Wednesdays, meatless Mondays and barbeque weeks.
Plex West is open for all meals, with made-to-order lunch and dinner options available, including omelets, burgers and burritos. You can even get your favorite brunch options on Sundays. In addition, students can request halal menu items from the grill. For those who get the munchies after dinner, Plex West late night is open Monday through Thursday. And if you want to just grab something to take to-go, consider the C-store, filled with prepared sandwiches, wraps, sushi platters and more.
