Late night food stops satisfy cravings

On nights when hunger hits and the cafeteria has already closed, microwaved meals just aren’t enough to get ravenous students through the night.

There are a variety of food options within five miles of the Owings Mills campus residence halls, including fast food restaurants that have drive-through options in addition to a couple of restaurants that have dine-in as well as carry out options. Because the residence halls are located close to Reisterstown Road, there are plenty of food options, including a variety of cuisine choices.
