Meal Plan Options
University Dining has a variety of meal-plan options to suit your needs and budget. Each plan is built around a set number of meals per week or semester that you can use at dining halls, put toward meals at campus quick-service restaurants or use for the dining hall Pack & Go take-out program through our equivalency program.
Your Meals Component is augmented by Dining Dollars, which are flexible dollars you can use in a variety of ways. Use them to make purchases in our C-Stores or vending machines; make up the difference if you go over the equivalency rate at a restaurant; buy snacks and drinks; treat a parent, sibling or friend to a meal when they come to visit; or buy meals if you’ve run out of meal-plan meals.
All of our plans except the athletic and commuter plans require a minimum of $100 Dining Dollars per semester. This declining balance account will roll over from year to year, and if you still have a balance when you graduate, you can ask for a refund!

Meals per Week… Meals per Semester… What’s the Difference ?
If you choose a meals-per-week plan, this means you can use your meals during any of the 26 meal periods offered per week.
For example, if you get a 14-meal-per-week plan, you can use your plan to eat a meal at either our dining halls or our restaurants during 14 of the 26 meal periods.
Step up to the Freedom Pass plan, and you can enter the dining halls as often as every 30 minutes to grab a meal or snack, plus take advantage of 10 meal equivalencies per week for restaurants, cafes and dining hall take out. It’s the perfect plan if you live near one of our dining halls.
If you choose a meals-per-semester plan, you can decide each week how many of your meals you want to use. For example, you can use 13 times one week and 18 times the next. It’s totally up to you. If you want to draw an average of how many meals per week you will need, use 17 weeks as a guide.
