Meal Plans

Residence Hall Students

Students residing in a traditional residence hall (Marycrest, Founders, Stuart, V.W. Kettering, and Marianist) are required to purchase a Meal Plan.  You may select either the Standard Plan or the Flexible Plan.  Meal Plans can be used in all of the Dining Services’ locations:  dining rooms, restaurant, the  mini-grocery/full-service deli, the convenience store, The Galley, the Jury Box, and The Chill.   All Dining Services’ locations are a’ la carte; there are no all-you-care-to-eat dining rooms.

 Neighborhood/Commuter Students 

Students in the apartment system or University houses and students that commute may elect to purchase a Neighborhood Meal Plan (usable in Dining Services’ locations only).  Students receive an additional 10% for every $100 purchased.
