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, $2,610 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. First year students will be allocated $500 of the total meal plan balance each semester, which can be used in the Coffee Shop after 7 p.m.
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 (available to upperclassmen)
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 $3,235.
The Resident Plus Meal Plan operates the same way as the Resident Standard Meal Plan.
If you wish to enroll in the Resident Plus Meal Plan, please email Financial Services at FinancialServices@anselm.edu with subject line "Resident Plus Meal Plan". Be sure to include student ID number in the body of the email.
Deadline to enroll in Resident Plus Meal Plan is August 15, 2018.
Resident Light Meal Plan (available to upperclassmen)
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, bringing your starting balance to $2,310.
The Resident Light Meal Plan operates the same way as the Resident Standard Meal Plan
If you wish to enroll in the Resident Light Meal Plan, please email Financial Services at FinancialServices@anselm.edu with subject line "Resident Light Meal Plan". Be sure to include student ID number in the body of the email.
