Meal Plan Rates

First Year On-Campus Residents

First year students who have a housing contract through Housing and Food Services are required to purchase a residential meal plan.  Per the terms and conditions of the housing agreement they are not eligible to purchase a Campus Dining Pass or to forego purchasing a meal plan.

Residential Unlimited Meal Plan

This plan offers students maximum flexibility to meet the needs of any eating schedule.  Students have the freedom to eat a full meal or to just stop by to grab a snack.  The format of this plan eliminates the need to budget meals per week and allows students to enjoy eating at the pace that works best for them. 

For added value the unlimited meal plan comes with fifteen additional meals that you can use to treat a guest and $150 Bearcat Card dollars.
