Meal Plan Choices

Most students living in residence halls are required to have a traditional Weekday or Full Week meal plan (view details), both of which allow you to take advantage of our popular all-you-care-to-eat open dining policy. These high value plans allow you to visit any dining hall at any time as often as you wish. Most are open 7a.m. to 7p.m. (M - F) with Sunday service at Kerr Hall. Kerr is open until 12:00 AM (M-TH).

If there are questions regarding the purchase of a meal plan, please contact our main office at 940-565-2462.

How did we figure price per meal?
Here is an example using the Full Week Basic Plan:

The best deal is the Full Week Value plan. How much value?  Well that depends on how often and how much you eat. There are three traditional meal periods (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) in a day. Our experience shows students can eat several more times in a day. Our cafeterias serve continuously and students may eat as much as they want as often as they want — there are no limits! If you only eat three meals per day, then your average cost per meal is $3.95. If you eat a fourth meal, then your average cost drops to $2.96. If you eat five meals per day, then… well, you get the picture. This is the “don’t ever worry about food” plan delivered at a great value.

The Weekday plans are also a good value; however they do not cover any weekends or have a greater flex option. There is a price difference of only $145 between the two plans. If you absolutely intend to spend every weekend off campus, then the Weekday plan is for you. However, if you stay on campus only one weekend per month, a Full Week plan is the best value.

Students living in residence halls are required to have a Weekday or Full Week meal plan, both of which allow you to take advantage of our popular all-you-care-to-eat open dining policy. This program allows you to visit any dining hall at any time as often as you wish. Please check for Dining Hall Fall 2015/Spring 2016 Hours located on the Dining Hall location site.

Students who have classes at Discovery Park can purchase a Discovery Park meal plan. This meal plan needs to be purchased or converted (prior to the 2nd Friday after the semester starts) in the Dining office (Crumley Hall #132). Proof of Discovery Park class must be presented at time of purchase or conversion.

SHUTTLE ROUTE - DISCOVERY PARK

Most conversion Discovery Park Meal Plans change the traditional meal plan to a block plan with Disco Dollars and Flex. 'Disco Dollars' work like Flex and can only be utilized at the retail dining options in Discovery Park. The 'Flex' can be used at any campus retail dining location. The DP-Combo Meal Plan continues the unlimited Dining Hall meals and converts the FLEX dollars into a DP-Combo meal per day option.
