The Campus Card Office works in conjunction with Residence Life and Dining Services to provide meal plans for students and employees alike. Meal plans can be used at all on-campus dining facilities, including Center Stage Cafe, Connections Cafe, Lakeshore Dining, Nina's Cafe, Rambler Room, Simpson Dining, SouthSide Market, Terry Center Food Court, and Union Station.
All undergraduate resident students are required to have a meal plan while residing on-campus, per the Department of Residence Life. Students select the desired meal plan through the Housing Contract. If no meal plan is selected, the student will be assigned the lowest meal plan applicable (based on standing and residence hall).
View all meal plan options available to students residing on campus.
Resident students may change their meal plans using the appropriate Change Request Form prior to the indicated deadline.
Cancellation of the Housing Contract should be directly with the Department of Residence Life. Once a Housing Contract cancellation is approved, the meal plan is also void. Students should cancel their housing contract (and, thus, their meal plan) prior to the beginning of the term to avoid meal plan enrollment charges.
If a student cancels his/her housing contract, but wishes to continue with a meal plan, he/she should request a meal plan using the Non-Resident Meal Plan Request.
Meal plans are optional for non-resident students. Any student that does not live on campus must submit a request each semester he or she wishes to have a meal plan.

All non-resident students who wish to cancel their meal plan must do so in writing to: email@example.com.
Board Meal Plans
Board meal plans provide a specific number of guaranteed, all-you-care-to-eat meals each week of a semester for breakfast, lunch and dinner (brunch & dinner on weekends) at Lakeshore Dining, Simpson Dining, and at the Water Tower Campus dining facilities upon special request.
Each time a student enters the approved dining facility, one meal is subtracted from the weekly meal balance. Unused meals do not carry over from week to week. The meal plan week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday.
Board meal plans are available to all students. All first-year resident students are required to select from the board meal plan options available to them.
Flex Dollars: all board plans include flex dollars which provide students with the ability to purchase items from any on-campus dining facility, including all campus convenience stores and cafés.
Note: flex dollars carry over from semester to semester, but not year to year.
Declining Balance Plans
Declining balance meal plans are used similar to a debit account with the original balance set as requested and funds removed based on purchases. This plan may be used at any on-campus dining facility, including on-campus convenience stores and cafés.
This meal plan gives students with kitchens in their residence halls the flexibility to supplement meals they prepare with meals in the dining facilities.
Declining balance meal plans are available to upper-class resident students, and all non-resident students.
Note: declining balance meal plans carry over from semester to semester, but not year to year.
Block Meal Plans
Block meal plans provide a specific number of guaranteed, all-you-care-to-eat meals per semester for breakfast, lunch and dinner (brunch & dinner on weekends) at Lakeshore Dining, Simpson Dining, and at the Water Tower Campus dining facilities upon request.
One meal is subtracted from the remaining meal balance for each meal used. Unused meals do not carry over from semester to semester.
Block meal plans are available for all non-resident students only.
