Choose Your Meal Plan


How Meal Plans work:

  • If you live in residence, you'll need to choose a meal plan (a Junior Housing plan if you're in Junior Housing, and a Jr. or Sr. Housing plan if you're in Senior Housing).
  • Meal plans work like a debit card. Money is loaded onto your 1Card. At the dining till, just swipe your card to pay for your meal or snack, and your balance will decline.
  • You can add more money to your meal plan at any point in the semester, but once the money has been added to your account it's not refundable.
