This Pizza ATM Might Be The Best Invention EVER

In college, late-night snacking is a must. Whether you’re up all night trying to finish that term paper or are out partying ’til the wee hours with friends, chances are you’re going to get hungry. That’s why one college in Cincinnati made it its mission to come up with a late-night dining option for students, and it’s making us wish we were back in school.

Xavier University just installed a pizza ATM in Fenwick Place, a residence hall on campus. The kids who are living there this fall are mighty lucky. According to, this food ATM serves up pizza in just minutes and will be open for student use 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Pizza ATM was created by a French company called Paline, and the one that was recently set up at Xavier is the very first in the United States. Students will be able to select the type of pie they want, and then said pie is moved to a convection oven. Once it's heated, it gets dropped into a box and shot out to the student. The very first pizza made in the ATM was given to Xavier's women's soccer team yesterday, and it looks better than any dining-hall food we ever had.

When can we move in?
