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.

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.

All students living in an on-campus residence hall are required to purchase a residential meal plan. Students living off campus or in the Christiana Towers are not required to purchase a meal plan, but still have the option to signup for a residential or optional meal plan. Students with meal plans must agree to the terms of the Dining Services Agreement.   Students can change meal plans as many times as they want until the week prior to move-in weekend. After move-in weekend, students can request one change through the published deadline: Fall 2018 - September 11 and Spring 2019 - February 22.

Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
