COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) - Pizza is now easier to get than ever at The Ohio State University as a new Pizza ATM is revealed.

The high-tech machine is located on the second floor of Morrill Tower and will serve hungry students from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Non-students can try it for lunch between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Ohio State says the machine works by having it loaded with pre-made pizzas in a neighboring kitchen. When a pizza is ordered, it bakes in about three to four minutes.

The Pizza ATM can hold about 70 pizzas at a time, making it a convenient option when the closest dining hall is closed.

Similar machines are on the campuses of Xavier University and Case Western Reserve University, per Ohio State.

A 10-inch pizza costs $8.
