If you’ve walked by Georgy Gym and Jester Dormitory, you might have noticed the line of people waiting at a food truck. As of last week, the University Unions began offering food trucks on campus for those who want to try something different than the usual dining hall options.


The decision for the program has been a work in progress since 2014, said executive director of University Unions Mulugeta Ferede. Although a resolution was signed in 2015 by the Student Government, the plan was delayed due to the construction in the area.


“The students I’ve talked to are really excited about this,” Ferede said. “They have been waiting for this for three years. I think this will help showcase the food truck culture we have in Austin and make campus more lively.”


Students can expect to see one food truck serving every weekday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. near Gregory Gym. There are currently six food trucks approved: Kona Ice, Mighty Cone, Casey’s New Orleans Snowballs, Four Brothers, Melted and Gobble Gobble.
