We love cooking for you! Our meal plans offer great value and fresh, nutritious selections every day at every meal. And many of the ingredients come from local sources, including the campus Sustainable Student Farm.
The best part of your University Housing meal plan—and the part that no one else on campus can offer—is that your meal plan is valid at all University Housing dining halls and a la carte locations. So you and your friends can grab lunch near the Quad, have dinner at a specialty restaurant, and grab a late-night snack in your hall. We are open from early morning to late at night to serve you.
Want a custom stir-fry? We can do that. Want pasta with your exact sauce, toppings, and cheese, toasted to a bubbly brown goodness? We can do that, too. We also offer vegetarian and vegan options, and free access to our staff dietitian for your special dietary needs.

Residents in our graduate upper-division halls (Daniels and Sherman) and University Apartments are not required to have a meal plan, but you may find it worthwhile and convenient to purchase one. Or just add some Extra Credits to your i-card and try out one of our dining halls. Family members and children of residents are welcome, too (and if they’re under 12, can eat at a discounted rate!).
