Different meal plans work for different people and schedules. Be sure to read the descriptions above or try our Meal Plan Picker to get more detailed explanations and examples. This can be very useful when trying to decide how much Dining Dollars will last the semester. It is important to remember that you are paying for ALL individual meals in one combined price. When determining how much is being paid for each individual meal, subtract the Dining Dollars from the price and divide the result by the total meals for the semester (16 weeks).

FAQ

Below are the answers to common questions around meal plans.

Dining Dollars provide flexibility and convenience for students looking to customize their meal plans. Whether you want to add a little extra to your daily meals or indulge in specific retail combos, Dining Dollars are the perfect solution. These supplementary currencies can be used to purchase any food item within our dining locations, and the best part is they are tax-free!

In addition to their versatility, Dining Dollars can also be combined with a Meal Swipe to access Meal Exchange options, offering even more variety and value. If you're curious about the specific Meal Exchange choices available, you can find a comprehensive list on our website.

When considering your meal plan options, don't forget to check out the Meal Plan Pricing section to see how many Dining Dollars are included with each plan. It's important to note that while Dining Dollars will roll over from the Fall to Spring semester when purchasing a new meal plan, they will not carry over from Spring to Fall. So make sure to make the most of your Dining Dollars each semester to enjoy all the delicious dining options available on campus!

Anytime Meals provide students with the flexibility to enjoy additional meals without worrying about their regular weekly meal plan limits. These meals offer a safety net, allowing students to dine on campus even if they have used up all their regular meal swipes. It's a convenient option for those who may occasionally exceed their meal plan allocation or need extra meals during busy weeks. By having Anytime Meals available, students can feel more secure in managing their meal plan budget and focus on their academic and personal responsibilities without the stress of running out of dining options.
Sharing meal swipes with other students and family members can be a great way to make use of your meal plan and ensure that everyone is well-fed. Just remember, it's crucial to keep track of your swipe count to ensure you have enough for yourself as well. Enjoy sharing good food and good company with those around you while making the most of your meal plan benefits!
