Meal Plans

In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans. 

Residential Meal Plans are semester based. Students default to the Flex Plan and have the opportunity to change the meal plan once per semester. Changes can only be done during the first 10 days of the semester. Each Residential Meal Plan consists of:

  • Meals: Can be used at the Little Building Dining Hall
  • Guest Meals: Can be used to bring any guest to a meal at the Little Building Dining Hall
  • Board Bucks: Can be used at any campus eatery and are deducted based on the dollar amount spent.  Board Bucks cannot be used off campus.

Important Info

Selecting a Meal Plan
On Campus: All students are defaulted to the Flex plan. We recommend that all students wait until they have determined where their classes are, where they are living and where they will be eating before making a change to the meal plan. Meal plans can be changed ONCE per semester via eCommon.
Off-Campus: Off-campus students can follow this link to Purchase a Commuter Meal Plan

Changing a Meal Plan
Students may change their meal plan once per semester. Changes are initiated online via eCommon and must occur prior to the end of the College’s add/drop period. Changes made will be effective no later than the Monday following the submission of the student’s change request form.
Additional changes will be granted under extreme circumstances by appealing to the Food and Housing Petition Board. Please contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life for information regarding the petition process.

Board Bucks
Board Bucks for on campus meal plans must be utilized by the end of the Spring semester and cannot be requested in a refund.
Commuter meal plans and their associated Board bucks will be carried over to the next semester and/or next academic year until the balances are depleted.
