Within a facility, the Institutional Foodservice, such as dining halls, holds a significant role in the dormitory setup. These dining spaces provide students with opportunities to socialize, dine, and engage with peers and faculty from diverse backgrounds. This fosters a sense of community on campus. Specifically, the Institutional Foodservice at IKTBN Alor Gajah is located near the student dormitory block. This research comprises a descriptive survey aimed in assessing student satisfaction with the Institutional Foodservice.
