We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

  • Do I need to buy a meal plan?
    ◦Residential meal plans are mandatory for students living in the residence halls, the housing application includes selecting a meal plan. The cost of your meal plan is billed to your student account before the start of each quarter.

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next quarter? 

  • Will unused meals or Dining Dollars roll over? 
    ◦Meals do not roll over quarter to quarter but Dining Dollars roll over until the end of the school year.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    ◦Meal Plan holders can change their meal plan the first two weeks of any quarter or in-between quarters.


Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
