Residence Meal Plan

Residence Meal Plans are active during the academic year, from September - April.

Your mandatory meal plan is included in your residence fees and allows you to eat at three All-You-Care-To-Eat dining halls and several retail food locations serving a variety of globally inspired food across campus!   

Your 2024/25 Residence Meal Plan includes: 

19 weekly meals: Eat in your choice of three All-You-Care-To-Eat dining halls using up to three meal swipes and four TAMs daily. Your plan also includes five guest passes for you to bring a friend to the dining hall for just $5. 

200 Trade a Meals (TAM): “Trade-in” up to four dining hall meal swipes for TAM swipes per day to build your own combo meal in participating retail locations. TAMs are not additional weekly meals but provide flexibility for you to eat across campus aligned with your busy schedule. *All meal plans and/or any portion of unused plans expire at the end of the academic year, are non-refundable, and cannot be carried over into a new term.  Flex $, also included in your meal plan, helps provide additional options for purchasing snack items or single menu items between meals. 

145 Flex $: Flex $ works like cash loaded onto your student card to supplement retail food purchases like beverages, snacks, and meals in participating locations. The cashier will swipe your card and the purchase amount will be deducted from your Flex $ balance. You can add more Flex $ to your card at any time, and in any denomination through the  Student Residence & Dining Portal. Parents, family supporters, and friends can also gift students Flex $ through Campus Market.

Auto-enrollment into the GOOD TO GO Reusable Container Initiative: A green carabiner clip is supplied when you check in at your residence front desk. Bring your carabiner to a food counter at retail food locations on campus and participate in the sustainable swap and exchange of carabiners to save the $0.75 single-use fee on select take-out containers.

GOOD TO GO Reusable Container Initiative

Who doesn't want to save $0.75 per single-use container and help reduce waste? As a first-year student on a meal plan, you are automatically enrolled into the GOOD TO GO reusable container initiative and will receive a green carabiner at the residence front desk when you pickup your keys. DO NOT LOSE IT. The carabiner will be your new sidekick when choosing to reuse while dining in retail on campus.
