We strive to make the transition to becoming a resident student here as simple as possible. When you enroll in one of our required resident meal plans, you gain reliable and convenient access to a variety of foods on campus.
Commuter students may also choose to have a meal plan. There are special benefits to having a meal plan–such as saving the sales tax on every food purchase. For more on commuter life on campus, as well as commuter dining options, click visit the Commuter Student Services site.
Campus Dining Services offers many different locations that are within walking distance from key points on campus. There are four food service locations in the residential quads. If you will be living in Roth Quad or Tabler Quad, the Roth Food Court and Tabler Café are nearby; if you will be living in Roosevelt Quad or Kelly Quad, the Kelly Dining Center is right around the corner; Union Commons is nearest to Mendelsohn and H Quads.

This plan is an expansion of the West Campus Resident Meal Plan and has the same expiration date. Applications for a dual meal plan must be filled out at either the East Campus ID Office or the West Campus Meal Plan Office.
