Meal Plans

2019-2020 Residential Meal Plans

Begins August 17th 2019

This is a traditional meal swipes dining program that focusses on bringing everybody to the dining center for meals. Meal swipes are only spent at the Pavilion and Cat Dollars are spent anywhere on campus. Every swipe gives you access to anything in the Dining Pavilion, for as much as you would care to eat. This program offers a variety of options, from a meal plan designed for the reasonable management of student resources to an all-encompassing plan for unlimited meals.

The Residential Meal Plans below were designed as a piece of the Housing Contract to fulfill room and board requirements. Meal Plan funds are intended for primarily food purchases and must have a date of expiration contractually.
