Housing and Meal Plan Rates

As you plan for a housing and meal plan combination that fits your budget, you can also determine what options are available for Residence Hall Communities. There is a plan for all types of students, and there is one for you!

Rate Structure & Tuition Guarantee

The room and board rate structure aligns with the university's Tuition Guarantee programs. New first–year students are assigned to a cohort based on the semester for which the student first enrolls as a degree–seeking student.

Beginning fall 2020, room and board rates will be tied to each student's tuition cohort.

Note: Room and board rates continue to vary by room type and options selected.

Meal Plans

First-year On-Campus Residents

First-year students who have a housing contract through Housing and Food Services are required to purchase the All-Access Residential Meal Plan (formerly unlimited). 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 All-Access* 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 All-Access (*formerly known as unlimited) meal plan comes with fifteen additional meals that you can use to treat a guest and $150 Bearcat Card dollars.
