Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

University of Delaware meal plans contain different balances of meals and points preloaded on your ONEcard. All students with a meal plan agree to the Dining Services Agreement.

Meals allow entry into our three residential, all-you-care-to-eat locations -- centrally-located Caesar Rodney Fresh Food Company, Russell Dining on East Campus and Pencader Dining on Laird Campus. Meals can be used anytime throughout the day on your own schedule. Meals are also non-transferable and can only be used by the meal plan holder.

One point is equivalent to one dollar and points decline like money on a debit card. They are mainly used at on-campus retail locations and P.O.D. convenience stores. Beginning this fall, you will receive a 10% discount on all purchases made with points.

Many meal plans also include meal exchange, which allows you to "exchange" one residential meal per day in either Trabant Food Court or The Scrounge, at select locations, during late night hours. Guest meals are used to treat a friend or family member to an all-you-care-to-eat meal.

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

Our Meal Plans

Students Living On Campus
All students living in an on-campus residence hall are required to purchase an on-campus meal plan. Students are automatically assigned the 14 Weekly plan but can switch to an All Access, Weekly or Block plan.
Students Living Off Campus
Off-campus meal plans are designed for students not living in a residence hall because they may be commuting to campus or living off campus in an apartment, in University Courtyard or in graduate student and family housing.
Dining Points
Students living off campus, in University Courtyard, graduate student and family housing have the option to have an All Points plan, but are not required to purchase one. When running low, students can also add points throughout the semester.
Summer Session Meal Plans
Students participating in Summer Sessions (5-week classes or 7.5-week classes) and will be living in an on-campus residence hall are required to purchase one of the available Summer Session residential meal plans.
Winter Session Meal Plans
Students participating in Winter Sessions (5-week classes or 4-week classes) and will be living in an on-campus residence hall are required to purchase one of the available Winter Session residential meal plans.
Faculty & Staff
Dining on campus is not just for students! Faculty and staff, both full and part-time, are now eligible for meal plans.
