Which Plan to Choose

Your Meal Plan options are determined by where you live.

Select the building you'll be living in to learn about your options. If you don't know where you'll be living yet, don't worry! There's plenty of time to change your Meal Plan once your housing assignment arrives.

  • Choose the Unlimited, 14+, 7+, or 5+ Plan.
  • Weekly Meal Plans are per week, Meals do not transfer to the next week.
  • Use up to 4 Meals per day (exception: Unlimited Plan), 1 Meal per purchase.
  • Dining Dollars can be used at all Laker Food Co. locations throughout the semester, Meals are for personal use only and cannot be shared or transferred.

  • Weekly Meals are available 7 days a week, while classes are in session. Weekly Meals are not available Thanksgiving, Winter or Spring Break.
  • South Campus and Off-Campus Students: If you'd like your Fall Meal Plan to auto-renew for Winter, select "auto-renewal" along with your Fall Meal Plan selection before checkout. Winter Meal Plans will not be billed until Winter Semester.

  • Meals and Dining Dollars can be used at your discretion throughout the semester.

I'm not sure where I'm living yet

Don't worry!

No matter where you live, there's a Meal Plan to fit your budget and lifestyle. For incoming freshmen, housing assignments are typically sent in mid-June prior to the Fall semester. 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.
