First-year students are required to have a meal plan. You are assigned the Garnet 14 with 25 Meal Plan Dollars to start with, but you are able to upgrade to any of our weekly plans. Upperclassmen are able to choose from our Upperclassmen/Commuter meal plans.
Meal Swipes: Meal swipes can be used in our residential restaurants for all-you-care-to-eat dining or in retail for a meal equivalency. You can use more than one swipe per meal period and up to 4 in a day. There is a 30-minute window between allowed swipes. Unused meal swipes expire at the end of the week and meal swipes will reset back the following week.
Meal Plan Dollars: Meal plan dollars (MPD) are tax free and can be used for snacks, coffee or overages at retail locations when using a meal equivalency. MPD can be used at all dining locations and expire at the end of the semester.
You can always upgrade your meal plan at any point in the semester. You can only downgrade your meal plan until the end of the first week of classes. If you upgrade mid-semester the price will be prorated.
