All meal plan privileges are non-transferable in part or in whole. All meal plans and their usage are subject to change.
Meal plan participants are required to verify their identity at the point of purchase by presenting a valid RamCard, CSU-issued conference card, or digital equivalent to verify account and meal plan status. RDS reserves the right to deny access if identity credentials are not presented and/or are determined to be invalid. A service charge may be assessed when meal plan holders are unable to provide proper credentials and continue to access the dining location utilizing their meal plan.
Meal plan holders who allow another person to use their RamCard, or other valid credentials, may have their card confiscated at entry and may be required to obtain a replacement card at their own expense.
Disciplinary action may be recommended for students if terms and conditions are violated.
ON CAMPUS RESIDENCE HALL STUDENT MEAL PLANS
Meal plans are required as part of the room and board contract for all students living in on-campus residence halls.
Residence hall meal plan holders will select one of these meal plans: Any 19 + Add On, Any 19, or Any 15. Students who do not select a meal plan will automatically be placed on the Any 15 plan.
Hall students who are approved through the Meal Plan Exemption process may be placed on the Exemption Plan as determined by University Housing and Residential Dining Services.
As part of the residence hall student meal plans, every meal plan holder will receive $150 in RamCash (billed separately) and 15 Bonus Meals at the start of fall and spring semesters. RamCash can be used at any location on campus that accepts RamCash. Bonus Meals are valid at Dining Center locations in RDS and not at Marketplace, Express, and Café locations. Bonus Meals may be used for guests. Guests eating in Dining Center locations must be sponsored as a guest of a residence hall meal plan holder to gain access.
All residence hall meal plans allot a specific number of meals to use per week based on which meal plan is chosen. Weekly meal allotments are valid from 12:00 am on Saturday mornings through 11:59 pm Friday nights. All unused meals are forfeited at 11:59 pm on Fridays and do not transfer to the following week. Four separate meals periods are defined each day. Meal plan holders may use up to two meals per meal period.
Meal plan changes that result in a reduction in cost are permitted on or before September 6th, 2022 for fall semester and on or before February 1nd, 2023 for spring semester. Meal plan changes that increase cost are permitted at any time. Meal plans changes are limited to no more once in a 7 day period.
Residence hall meal plan holders who are ill and incapable to physically go to a dining center may request others to pick up meals for them and authorize the use of their meal plan. To do so, holders must complete the Sick Meal Request form and follow the submission requirements as described in the form. The completed form must be presented at the entrance.
