2018-2019 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. Instead of dining in, you may select from all of our menu offerings and take your meal to-go in a reusable container.

$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 while the dining locations are open. 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.

Plus, you have the unique ability to convert any of the 160 meals a semester into Dining Dollars at a rate of $5.80 per meal, twice per semester. Deadlines apply for conversions: November 30th for fall semester and April 30th for spring semester.

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.
