Dining Services

All resident students participate in one of the three meal plan options offered by Dining Services. All meal plans operate as a declining balance system, which allow the student maximum flexibility and convenience. For housing and meal plan rates click here.

Things to consider when thinking about the three meal plans:

  • Meal Plan #1 is for all first year resident freshman and those residents who spend most of their time on campus, including breaks.
  • Meal Plan #2 is for residents sophomore and above who spend the majority of their time on campus and healthier appetites.  Freshman have the option of changing to meal plan #2 after one semester living on campus.
  • Meal Plan #3 is for residents sophomore and above who frequently go home on weekends and have off-campus employment and/or internships.

Dining Services provides meal options to meet the needs of today’s college students while giving careful attention to nutrition, preparation and dining environment. A vegetarian option and an additional vegan entrée are provided at each meal. Students are encouraged to bring favorite recipes from home to share with Dining Services.
