Our a-la-carte meal plans allow students to frequent our dining facilities as often as they choose. Each time a purchase is made with the meal card, a student's account balance is reduced accordingly, with no per visit purchase limit. This allows the student the opportunity to personalize and make the best use of their meal plan!
Resident Meal Plans
Students who live in traditional style campus residence halls are required to participate in a resident meal plan. All first year students living on campus are required to participate in the Resident Standard Meal Plan.
At the beginning of each semester, $2,535 of the room and board fee is allocated to the student's meal plan.
The funds on your meal account are yours to spend as you wish each semester. There is no restriction on the amount that may be used at the different dining facilities. Meal plan participants may use as much of their funds as they choose to in the Coffee Shop after 7 P.M.
Unlike many other college meal programs, we roll over any remaining balance on your dining account from the first semester to the second semester!
- For example, if you have $100 remaining at the end of the first semester, you will begin the second semester with a dining balance of $2,635, allowing you extra time to spend your remaining dining dollars! While you will have the entire year (both semesters) to use your meal plan, funds will not roll over from year to year or be credited to your student account.
- Meal plan funds cannot be used to purchase alcohol at the pub.
- Should you deplete all your funds on this plan, you may add more money to an Optional Meal Plan account and receive a 10% discount on all purchases.
*Please note: Balance rollover does not apply if the Resident Meal Plan is terminated mid-year.
Upperclassmen who reside in traditional style residence halls may choose to participate in the Resident Plus Meal Plan or the Resident Light Meal Plan rather than the Resident Standard Meal Plan.
Meal Plan Plus
If you are a student who typically runs low on funds toward the end of the semester, you may choose to purchase the Resident Plus Meal Plan, which costs an additional $500 per semester. You will also receive a $125 bonus credit on your meal plan account, bringing your starting balance to $3,160.
The Meal Plan Plus operates the same way as the Resident Standard Meal Plan, with no restriction on how you divide your funds between dining locations and any remaining balance (less the $125 bonus credit) rolling over from the first semester to the second semester.
If you wish to purchase the upgraded Resident Meal Plan Plus, please contact Financial Services at 603-641-7775.
Resident Light Meal Plan
Students who are light eaters or who are not on campus seven days a week may want to choose the Resident Light Meal Plan. This plan will result in a $300 credit to your room and board fee each semester, brining your starting balance to $2,235. If you select the Resident Light Meal Plan, your meal plan funds will not roll over from first semester to second semester. If you run out of funds before the end of the semester, you will be charged a $50 fee to setup an Optional Meal Plan account.
Meal Plans for Students Living in On-Campus Apartments or Off-Campus
The Flex Plan is a meal plan option available to all upperclassmen who reside in on-campus apartment housing, as well as to any student who lives off-campus. It is a pre-purchased meal plan that can be used at Davison and the Coffee Shop any time of day.
With the Flex Plan, there are two options: an $800 plan with an additional $150 bonus credit, giving you $950 to spend or the $1,200 plan with a $300 bonus credit giving you $1,500 to spend. At the end of the semester, the balance (less the bonus dollars) will be rolled over to the next semester until you graduate. Any remaining balance will be refunded at that time.
- For example, if a student purchases the $800 plan, he will have $950 to start. If he has $200 left at the end of the semester, $50 will be rolled over onto his flex plan for the next semester. To purchase a Flex Plan, contact Dining Services before the start of the semester, and the total amount will be included in your Room & Board charge.
Optional Meal Plan
The Optional Meal Plan is available for students in apartment housing who do not wish to purchase a Flex Plan or for students in traditional dorms who run out of funds before the end of the semester. A 10% discount is applied to all purchases made with Optional Meal Plan funds. With the Optional Meal Plan, you may add as little or as much money as you like to your account throughout the academic year. At the end of the semester, the balance will roll over to the next semester until you graduate. Any remaining balance will be refunded at that time.
