Meal Plan Choices

Most students living in residence halls are required to have a traditional 5 or 7 day 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 weekend service at Kerr Hall. Kerr is open until 12:00 AM (M-TH).

How did we figure price per meal?
Here is an example using the 7 Day Basic Plan:

The best deal is the 7 Day 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 $3.86. If you eat a fourth meal, then your average cost drops to $2.88. 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 5 Day plans are also a good value; however they do not cover weekends. There is a price difference of $152 between the two plans. If you absolutely intend to spend every weekend off campus, then the 5 Day plan is for you. However, if you stay on campus only one weekend per month, a 7 Day plan is the best value.

Students living in residence halls are required to have a 5 or 7 Day 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. Most are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (M-Th. 7pm close on Fridays) with weekend service at Kerr Hall.

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.
