Residental Housing Meal Plans 

Meal plans designed for students living in the following University Housing locations that require a meal plan: Richards Hall, Bullen Hall, Mountain View Tower, Living Learning Community, Canyon Crest Suites & Central Suites

Residents will be able to choose between the Unlimited Access Plan or Semester 110 Plan. This portion of the meal plan applies to our two dining halls, The Junction and The Marketplace. Residents can decide if they would like unlimited access to these two Dining Halls, or to enter a total of 110 times per semester. Each meal plan also includes Dining Dollars, which function like a debit card, and can be used at the remaining 13 retail dining locations across campus.

Changes to housing meal plans can be made during the first two weeks of the semester.

*Dining Halls are closed over Thanksgiving vacation and the week of Spring Break.

Unlimited Access Meal Plan

Use your student I.D. card to access our 2 Dining Halls as many times as you want. When we say unlimited we truly mean that. Swipe in for a quick healthy snack, or swipe in for a sit down meal with your friends. Use it 1 time a day, or 30 times a day. We do not care. This meal plan is best for students that don't want to cook or clean. Parents will never have to worry about their students being hungry.
$100 is also added to your I.D. Card each semester so you can grab quick snacks or a meal in our Cafes, Convenience Stores, and Food Court.
