On-Campus for J-Term
If you are on campus for J-Term, you must have a meal plan just like Fall and Spring Semesters. If you want to choose a plan other than the default for J-Term, you can do it through the "Optional Meal Plan" form under QuickLinks on the right-hand side of this page.
Off-Campus for J-Term
If you live on campus fall semester you'll have an active J-Term housing assignment until you cancel it. Even though you are not billed for J-Term Housing, you still need to cancel your housing. If you have an active J-Term housing assignment you'll be billed for a meal plan. By canceling your housing, we mean let the Residential Life Office know that you're going to be gone by completing a Housing Cancellation Form. You will not need to move out of your room for the month (assuming you're returning in Spring).
