Residence Hall Meal Plans

Meal plans are purchased per semester in conjunction with Room & Board rates. Three different meal plans are offered: Any 10, 14, or 21 meals per week. The week begins on Saturday morning and ends Friday night, and meals do not roll over. Each meal plan includes:

  • 20 bonus/guest meals to be used for friends, family, or the student if meals run low (parents and guardians can eat with their student for free twice every two weeks)
  • To-go meals
  • Two week grace period at the beginning of each semester to decrease meal plans
  • $150 RamCash each semester

An additional meal plan, the U Plan, is available for upperclass students only who choose to live on campus after their first year. This flexible plan includes 5 meals per week and includes all standard Residence Hall Meal Plan inclusions listed above.

Any 21 meal plans can be upgraded to Any Meal, Any Time (up to 12 meals per day) for an additional $319 per semester.

Guests, as well as parents/guardians, are always welcome to dine with us. CSU meal plan holders can use meal plan swipes to bring guests in to eat**.
