Fairhaven, Ridgeway and Viking Commons offers All-You-Care-To-Eat meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night meal service. At each dining hall, meals are prepared under the watchful eye of a chef. Vegan, vegetarian and made without gluten options are offered daily. Nutritional consultation and menu planning is available for those with dietary restrictions and food sensitivities. The dining commons are open to all meal plan holders as well as those who choose to pay at the door with Dining Dollars, Viking Dollars, Cash or Credit Card.

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.

Meal plans auto renew for next quarter. Once a mandatory meal plan holder moves out of on-campus housing, their meal plan is automatically canceled, based on their check out date.


Meals do not roll over quarter to quarter but Dining Dollars roll over until the end of the school year.

Meal Plan holders can upgrade their meal plan anytime.  Downgrades are accepted through the second Friday, after the start of each quarter, by 4:30 pm PST.  All meal plan changes are done online. The online portal is open Monday through Friday between 8a-4:30p.

All meal plan changes/purchases are pro-rated based on the first meal day of each quarter.  If you upgrade and have less Board meals on meal plan than you should, there may be an overspent meal charge added to your account, since you receive a pro-rated refund for your old meal plan.  Want to know all your upgrade options, including total charges and resulting Board meal balance?  Simply email us at dining@wwu.edu and ask prior to making the change online.
