Selecting A Meal Plan
The 2023 - 2024 Meal Plans are designed to provide maximum flexibility, value, and convenience.These meal plans include declining balance funds called Discount Dollars that activate deep discounts at retail dining venues. All students living on campus are required to be on a meal plan. Meal plans are purchased per semester.
Meal plans for the Spring 2024 semester can be added or changed between December 30th, 2023 - January 30, 2024.
Meal plans for the Spring 2024 semester will begin on Sunday, January 14th.
Discount Dollars will be activated at 12:00pm and meal plan swipes will be activated at 4:00pm.
Required for all freshmen living in residence halls.
Available to all students living in residence halls, University apartment and commuter students.
The myUnlimited Meal Plan will allow for unlimited meal swipes during every scheduled meal period/7 days a week at Indigenous and State Quad dining rooms. Declining balance funds called Discount Dollars are included with the myUnlimited Meal Plan and can be used in Campus Center retail venues where they will activate deep discounts off the menu board pricing. Up to $500 additional Discount Dollars can be added to your myUnlimited Meal Plan each semester.
All non-freshmen living in residence halls are automatically assigned myFlex Meal Plan #2.
myFlex Meal Plans are also available to University apartment and commuter students.
The myFlex Meal Plan, with five (5) options and the ability to add up to $500 additional Discount Dollars to your plan each semester, was designed so you have the freedom to eat when you want and where you want, with no restrictions at our Campus Center, resident dining rooms, and satellite retail dining locations.
Available to University apartment and commuter students.
The myChoice Meal Plan offers University apartment and commuter students the opportunity to explore and experience the benefits, variety and convenience of dining on campus at any Campus Center location, resident dining room, and satellite retail dining location. Unlike the myFlex or myUnlimited plans, the myChoice plan does not allow additional Discount Dollars to be added and only one myChoice Plan can be purchased per semester.
