Purchasing Meal Plan

This is a traditional meal swipes dining program that focusses on bringing everybody to the dining center for meals. Meal swipes are only spent at the Pavilion. Every swipe gives you access to anything in the Dining Pavilion, for as much as you would care to eat. This program offers multiple plans to choose from, for each community group, from a meal plan designed for the reasonable management of student resources to an all-encompassing plan for unlimited meals. These plans provide a significant discount from the door price to those that want to join in the greater campus dining experience.

Online Meal purchase is available to Off-Campus students and Faculty/Staff. Please note there is a convenience fee for meal plan purchases made via the web with a credit card.  Click on Commuter Student or Faculty & Staff for more information on the meal plan program.
