Off-Campus Student Plans

2016-2017 Off-Campus Meal Plan Options

Dining on campus is convenient and saves you money, as these meal plans are not subject to sales tax. University Dining Services offers two options for off-campus students, including a Voluntary Meal Plan option or Dining Dollar Plan option.

Voluntary Meal Plans for Off-Campus Students
These plans feature an account balance of all-you-care-to-eat meals at the University Dining Center, as well as a Dining Dollar account balance to use at any University Dining Services location. You can use the Voluntary Meal Plan balance at any dining period throughout the day in the Carkoski Dining Commons.
