Meal Plans

Eat what you want, when you want, where you want.

All residential students will be defaulted to the All Access Meal Plan for the Fall 2024 semester. Eligible students may make ONE change to their meal plan selection beginning mid-July. Students will receive a notification when the portal opens for Fall 2024. View plan options and rates for the upcoming semester below to prepare ahead of time.

You’ve got enough to focus on around campus: classes, studying, work and extracurricular activities. You shouldn't have to plan meal prep as well. Having a meal plan lets you grab a meal with your friends when you want it and where you want it.

We have meal plans that fit into your schedule and provide an assortment of high quality choices, with all the types of food you like. Short on cash? No worries, your meals are prepaid. Want something healthy? You’ve got it. Want to satisfy your sweet tooth? We can help with that too. So whether you’re looking to fill up or just hang out, we’ve got you covered.

W&M Dining offers two types of dining experiences - residential dining which offers all access meal options, and retail dining where students can use their Dining Dollars. 


All undergraduate students residing in campus-managed housing are required to have a meal plan and options are based on a students class year. Student residents of campus-managed apartments* may select from any plan, including the Block 50 and Block 25.

A meal plan accommodation must be submitted to formally request a change from the allowable meal plan options. While completing the accommodation, you will need to have these documents available to submit based on your reasons for an accommodation. Requests will not be reviewed until all documentation is received by William & Mary. 

Need to make an additional meal plan adjustment after the one allowable change?  Email [[dining,]]. Refunds and charges will be calculated on a daily meal plan rate as of the date the request was made. A $25 processing fee will also be assessed.

*Campus-managed apartments are defined as Ludwell, Tribe Square, Cabell and Nicholas apartments and the Grad Complex.
