Living in a residence hall?
Explore our plans designed to help you make the most out of your on-campus experience. Breakfast, lunch, dinner with your floor and snacks in between are taken care of with one of our four plans. Click on ‘Residence Halls’ to find the plan for you. Please note, Wallace and Wilson residents can choose from either hall or apartment plans.
Living in an apartment?
We know some of you will do your own cooking and others need a bit more! Our apartment meal plans offer large and small options. Whether you need us for lunch a few times a week or two meals a day, you can choose one of our convenient apartment plans. Need even more? You can also opt for a residence hall plan.
An Early Move-In Meal Program is available for students who are moving into their fall housing assignment before their scheduled move-in date of their resident hall or apartment. These meals can be used starting Saturday, Aug 11, in select dining centers and various Flex Meal locations. For more information click on the Early Move-In Meal Program page.
All of our locations are open to the public. In our cafés, convenience stores and restaurants, you pay for what you purchase. They’re great locations for snacks, meals, a homemade bakery treat or a cup of The Roasterie coffee.
Our dining centers are all-you-care-to-dine. Think of them like your favorite buffet but without the tips or taxes. The pricing below is for people who are not on a meal plan. Students with a meal plan can use their Flex Meals or Dining Dollars to pay for guests.
