Exciting Meal Plan Changes Coming This Fall!

Simple, Flexible Meal Plan Options

Included in your university housing, we have three options to choose from to meet your needs, all for no additional fee:

Traditional: 19 meals per week + $50.00 Dining Dollars per semester
Students are entitled to one meal during each meal period, up to 19 meals per week. There are 19 meal periods beginning each Monday morning and ending each Sunday night. Meal periods are defined as breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday during specific times. Dining Dollars may be used at any dining facility.

Flexible Value: 140 block meals per semester + 150 Dining Dollars per semester
Equates to an average of 9 meals per week and $10.00 Dining Dollars per week

Most Flexible: 100 block meals per semester + $350.00 Dining Dollars per semester

Commuter Plan Meal Options:

$100 Dining Dollars + 4 block meals = $100.00

$200 Dining Dollars + 10 block meals = $200.00

Interested in Changing Your Meal Plan?
Log onto your student portal and go to "Dining Services", click on "Meal Plan Information", and you are able to change it from there. Please note that you may only change your meal plan prior to the start of the semester.

Value Exchange
Student ID Cards will be used with an all new Point of Sale System that is tied to the campus database through the student's portal. Students will be able to use a pre-determined meal equivalency (value exchange) amount to purchase meals at all retail locations (the value of one meal within the 19 meal program). Value Exchange is a dollar amount set to provide a combined meal value in the retail locations.
