Early writings on university housing show a connection between dining services and university residence halls (Riker & Lopez, 1 96 1 ) Regardless of how housing and dining programs are organized within the institution, the two entities are inevitably connected; living and eating go together. A recent annual study (Educational Benchmarking, Inc. (EBI), 2002) comparing four years of data cited satisfaction with dining as being one of the foremost predictors of overall residence satisfaction. This prominent relationship provides incentive for housing administrators to be more aware of students' dining satisfaction. The purpose of this research was to examine contributors to residence hall students' dining satisfaction at a large Midwestern university.
