You pay $1550 (included in your housing fee), and the Plan you choose is up to you. If you want to make a change, use the Meal Plan Change Form or call us at 616-331-3399.

I'm not sure where I'm living yet

Don't worry!

No matter where you end up living, there's sure to be a Meal Plan to fit your budget and lifestyle. For incoming freshmen, housing assignments are typically sent in mid-June prior to your first year at GVSU. Take a look at all the Meal Plan options and select your Plan when you know where you're living. Some housing assignments include the price of a Meal Plan.
