Food

 

There are plenty of options for food both on campus and nearby. You can enjoy a vast variety of Taiwanese cuisine with an average of about 60-200 NTD(2-6 USD) per meal. Food delivery services such as UberEats or FoodPanda are also very popular and convenient. Here are some of the main eateries:

 

Main Cafeteria: Located right across the wooden stage, this cafeteria is always busy with the sounds of student activities. With it being renovated in 2021, it is one of the newest cafeterias on campus, serving affordable meals that will leave you satisfied. There is also a Mcdonald's and a 7-11 in the Main Cafeteria.

 

Shuimu Hall: Shuimu Hall is located near the entrance to the dorms. You will often see students take away their meals to enjoy back in their dorms. The food here is a little more expensive than the Main Cafeteria, but there are various cuisines to choose from, including Japanese food and a waffle stand. There is also an optician, a hair salon, a dry cleaner, a print shop, and a small grocery store in the Shuimu Hall. A one-stop-shop for everything you might need.

 

Fengyun Hall: Fengyun Hall is located just across from Shuimu Hall, and is a four-storied food paradise! From tacos to steaks or even spaghetti, if you can imagine it, we've got it! It's a little more pricey compared to the other two halls, but it's definitely worth it!

 

The Loft: The Loft is located on the fourth floor of Fengyun Hall and it provides a dine-in experience for students and professors alike. You can enjoy a set meal of steamed fish or even traditional Cantonese cuisine here! Good for a nice Friday night meal!

 

Wavelight Restaurant: The Wavelight Restaurant is located near the bus station in front of General building II. They serve scrumptious Italian dishes like risotto and spaghetti in a beautiful window-paned building. Perfect for a first date!

 

Guest House II: Hidden near the Delta Hall, you can find traditional Taiwanese food in the noontime and authentic Indian Curry at night. It is truly a hidden gem popular among engineering students.

 

Tsing Hua Night Market: Tsing Hua Night Market is just across from the main gate, with various shops open from dusk till dawn! You can enjoy restaurants as well as food stands, all without breaking the bank. Although it is called a night market, they are also open during lunchtime.
