Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

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?
    With a variety of options across campus, our meal plans offer the flexibility to eat when and where you want.  All students living in a residence hall (Fairview House, Residential College, Ross Hall, Irvington House) are required to be on the All Access Plan.  Apartment residents, off campus residents and Greek housing residents are encouraged to select a meal plan.   

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    All residence hall residents are required to purchase the All Access Plan and will be assigned that plan for both semesters.  Apartment residents, off campus residents and Greek housing residents, when you sign up for a meal plan, you will be signing up for BOTH the Fall and Spring semester. You can cancel or change your meal plan using the Meal Plan Change form for either semester at any time before the deadlines listed on this site, and there is no up-front commitment for any of the meal plans.

  • Will unused meals or Flex Dollars roll over? 
    Meals & Flex Dollars expire at the end of each semester and do not roll over until the next. If you have Dawg Bucks on your account, those will be available to use until you graduate from the university. Add on Dawg Bucks.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    If you don’t live in residence hall and have selected a meal plan, you have the first two weeks of the fall & spring semesters to change your plan. You can do so by filling out the Meal Plan Change form.
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.

Its like having your very own kitchen right outside your residence hall (or classroom). Grab what you want, when you want it or just go to socialize.
