Resident Student Plans
2016-2017 Meal Plan Options
Many dining options are available to students. Each plan has two components: a meal plan and dining dollar plan. Meal plans determine the number of meals available for either the week or the semester. A dining dollar plan is like a prepaid debit account that can be used at any of the campus dining facilities.
- Maverick Any Time Plan
Unlimited Dine-In Access / Includes 100 Dining Dollars per semester
This ultimate meal plan is the closest thing to having your own kitchen. This plan allows you unlimited access to the University Dining Center, at less than $12 per day. Stop by at 11:30 a.m. for a quick lunch on your way to class, return for a snack mid-afternoon, and stop by again for a soda before dinner begins with this ultra-flexible plan.
$100 Dining Dollars are associated with the Maverick Any Time Plan each semester. These Dining Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus, at any time of the day. You can also purchase additional Dining Dollars at any time. Important note: Your Dining Dollars will carry over from fall semester to spring semester; however any Dining Dollars balance not used by the end of spring semester will expire and be forfeited.

- Maverick 160 Plan
160 Meals per semester / Includes $25 Dining Dollars per Semester/ Convert Meals to Dining Dollars
This plan offers the ultimate flexibility to customize your meal plan, at less than $7.75 per meal. Start out with 160 meals for the semester, then eat as many (or as few) meals each week as you would like up to 160 meals for the entire semester. Plus, you have the unique ability to convert any of the 160 meals a semester into Dining Dollars at a rate of $5.60 per meal, twice per semester. Deadlines apply for conversions: November 30th for fall semester and April 30th for spring semester.
With this plan, you can determine whether you want more traditional meals in the University Dining Center or have greater flexibility with Dining Dollars to be used at any dining venue on campus. Also available is the ability to take a sack lunch or hot meal out of the dining hall. Semesters are approximately 16 weeks long, resulting in an average of 10 meals per week.
Your $25 Dining Dollars, and converted Dining Dollars, can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. The Maverick 160 is the only plan that allows conversion of meals to Dining Dollars, and these Dining Dollars must be used in the semester in which they are converted.
