Burapha University has many food options available around campus. Each faculty has its own building and most of these buildings contain canteens for staff and students to eat at. The International College Canteen has been recently renovated and is now very appealing to students. This canteen is one of few on campus where the menu is in both Thai and English. This is ideal for staff and students who are temporarily studying at Burapha University coming from an English speaking country who do not know how to read Thai.

Environmental Considerations

Though this cafeteria sells many snacks and drinks in plastic disposable packaging creating waste, they also serve food on reusable crockery and provide reusable cutlery for staff and students to use. This helps to reduce waste. There are also windows surrounding the cafeteria to help provide natural lighting- thus reducing energy consumption by reducing electric light use.
