Meal Plan Policies, Changes, Balances, and Adding Funds

Policies

All students living on campus must purchase a Block 200, Block 150, or Block 100 meal plan, each of which is offered at the same cost. No meal plan is required for Villages residents, fraternity residents, or commuters, though each has the option for any of the three basic meal plans or the Block 40 plan. Students sign up for meal plans in the Housing and Meal Plans section on WebAdvisor.

Students with a meal plan who move to Villages or fraternity housing after the meal change deadline must wait until the beginning of the following semester to change or drop their meal plan.

Plans are not in operation during Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, or Easter Break.

Meal Plan Changes

Fall meal plan selections can be adjusted here during SOAR or any time prior to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday of the first week of school. Spring meal plans can be adjusted here up until 5:00 p.m. on the first Friday of the semester.
