Plan Options

Core Plans

Our Core plans are designed primarily for students who desire to have the majority of their meals covered by a convenient, affordable campus dining plan. All first-year students living in on-campus housing are required to pick from these plans*, but these are open to all students.

Choose the Dining Hall, Flex, or Flex Plus plan to enjoy an all-access pass to the dining halls. For more options on where you can eat with your meal plan, choose from the Flex or Flex Plus plans, which offer meal credits to use at campus restaurants/cafes, plus Dining Dollars to spend anywhere you like. All three plans include dining hall guest meal swipes.

* When signing up, our system will not recognize first-year students. First-year students living in on-campus housing who sign up for a plan other than a Core plan will be contacted in late July/early August to select a Core plan.
