Freshman Meal Plan

How They Work

Meal plans come with a combination of meals and Dining Dollars. Meals can be used in our two all-you-care-to-eat dining halls (Sadler Center and the Commons) and at Marketplace in Campus Center. Dining Dollars can be used like cash at any dining locations on campus: Cosi in Sadler, Wholly Habaneros, BBQ 1693, Argo Tea, Zime at the Law School, Monticello Cafe at the School of Education, Boehly Café, Dodge Room, Jamba Juice in the Rec Center, Aromas in Swem Library Tribe Square and Domino’s Pizza delivery.


All Freshmen are required to select either the Freedom, Gold 19 or Gold 14 meal plan. If a meal plan is not selected, the Gold 19 plan will be automatically applied to your account. You may change your meal plan until the end of the add/drop period.  For the 2015-2016 academic year, the add/drop period ends at 5 pm on Friday, September 4 for the fall semester and Friday, January 29 for the spring semester.  Changes or cancellations after the add/drop period are rare and must be approved by the Contract Release Committee after the submission of a completed Meal Plan Petition Approved changes will be assessed any used meals and Dining Dollars as well as a $25 processing fee.  Need to make a meal plan upgrade after the add/drop period?  Email [[w|dining]]
