Gainesville Campus Dining


Location: Administration Building (100) near the Student Center


Welcome to Great Western Dining at North Central Texas College!  We provide a tasty, varied menu for residential students, faculty, staff and commuter students throughout the academic year.  It is our pleasure to serve you!


If you live in one of the residential halls, your meals are part of your housing package.  Meal tickets are also available for purchase from our cashier at $46.00 (includes tax) for 10 punches, making each buffet meal you receive a value of $4.60.  What a deal!  Our prices are modest compared to other dining options in the area.  You may use debit, credit, NCTC cards or cash for your food purchases.


We serve a daily all-you-can-eat buffet including entrees, starch, vegetables, soup, chili, salad bar, fresh fruit, desserts, ice cream, breads, sub bar, coffee, tea, cappuccino and fountain drinks.  Our menus change weekly on a 4-week rotation.  We welcome your suggestions for menu items!  Just see Mike, Food Service Director, or post a comment card.


The Grill features your favorite grill items, including breakfast burritos, omelets, cheeseburgers, grilled chicken, tots and French fries.
