Dining Plans

Great Food at a Reasonable Cost

Whether you live on campus or commute from home, you can choose from a variety of flexible dining plan options.

All dining venues on campus feature fresh, healthy options and accommodations for dietary restrictions. Students who live in residence halls are required to participate in a dining plan; commuters and campus apartment residents may opt in if they choose to.
