Meal Plans 2014-15

All meal plans except Meal Plan F are comprised of two parts: All-You-Care-to-Eat (AYCTE) meal periods and Dining Dollars. AYCTE meal periods are Monday–Friday dinners and all day Sunday. Dining Dollars are mainly intended for use during breakfast, lunch and all day Saturday.

With Meal Plans A-D, students can enter The Commons as many times as they like during AYCTE periods. Meal Plans E and G have a block of AYCTE meals, and one is used for each entrance into The Commons during the AYCTE period. Dining Dollars are a part of all meal plans and are a declining balance that can be used at all on-campus restaurants.

Remember, the bigger the plan, the greater the value—Meal Plan A gives you more Dining Dollars and more guest meals than Meal Plans B, C and D. Meal Plans A-D include unlimited all-you-care-to-eat meals (Sunday brunch & Sunday–Friday dinners) for each week of all three terms, Meal Plan F is Dining Dollars only while Meal Plan E includes 50 one-admittance AYCTE meals and Meal Plan G includes 20 one-admittance AYCTE meals.


Meal Plan Requirement

With the exception of Kreidler and South Hall residents, students with an active housing assignment must enroll in one of the following four meal plans: A, B, C or D.

Kreidler Hall residents have the additional options of Meal Plan E, F and G.

South Hall residents are not required to purchase a meal plan, but are encouraged to participate—a great choice would be Meal Plan E with 50 one-admittance AYCTE meals. South Hall residents may also wish to purchase Dining Dollars and take advantage of their on-campus food purchases having no sales tax.

Commuter students are not required to purchase a meal plan, but are encouraged to participate—a great choice would be Meal Plan G with 20 one-admittance AYCTE meals and $240 in Dining Dollars.
