Residence Hall Meal Plans

Meal plans are purchased per semester in conjunction with Room & Board rates. Weekly meal plans offered include: The Ultimate, Any 19, Any 15, and Any 10 meals per week. The week begins on Saturday morning and ends Friday night. Meals do not rollover. Each meal plan includes:

  • Access to all dining centers, marketplaces, and express locations. (How can I use my meal plan at the express locations?)
  • 15 flexible bonus meals to be used in the dining centers when you run low on weekly meals swipes
  • $150 RamCash each semester
  • Two-week grace period at the beginning of each semester to change meal plans

  • What is the reason behind the changes to meal plans?

    New options will support our students and better align with the typical meal usage of our resident population.  All meal plans include 15 bonus meals (that can be utilized at all-you-care-to-eat locations) and $150 of RamCash.  New weekly meal plans are as follows:

    • Ultimate Plan (up to 56 meals per week) + 15 bonus meals + $150 RamCash
    • Any 19 + 15 bonus meals + $150 Ram Cash
    • Any 15 + 15 bonus meals + $150 Ram Cash
    • Any 10 + 15 bonus meals + $150 Ram Cash

  • I’m not sure which meal plan to choose?

    • The Ultimate meal plan is for our hungriest Rams that need 3 or more meals a day
    • The Any 19 meal plan is our most commonly chosen plan, which offers the flexibility of 2-3 meals per day
    • The Any 15 meal plan is best suited for those who eat around two meals a day
    • The Any 10 meal plan is a good option for Rams who only need 1-2 meals per day.
