Brenau Dining Services

You don’t have to travel off campus to grab a quick bite or meal between classes. Brenau’s historic Gainesville campus houses both the Hopkins Dining Hall and Tea Room, which provide large selections of food sure to cater to any palate.

The Hopkins Dining Hall features meals plans for purchase, or you may pay at each visit. The dining hall provides seven stations, which include Italian cuisine, comfort food, international dishes, dessert and salad.

The Tea Room, located in Sorority Circle, contains Brewed Awakenings, a coffee shop with Starbucks options; P.O.D. Market, a general store with food and school supplies; and Burgers + Fries, which serves burgers, fries, chicken sandwiches, vegetarian options and other hot items.

Kendy Manzano
Embrace everything Brenau has to offer. It was genuinely the best four years of my life, and I’m so glad that I took every opportunity. I said yes to every door that opened and learned to grow from every experience. It has played such a big role in who I am today.
Jayda Burkett
I say do everything the campus offers. Join clubs, student services — do everything. If you don’t, you’ll look back and wish you did. You only have four years here, so make them beautiful.

Pursuing your curiosities and hobbies shouldn’t stop in college. If you’re a fan of gardening, fashion, art and design, journalism, politics, community service or anime, we have a club for you. And if we don’t already, we will work with you to create one!
