Meals for On-Campus Students
Students living in the traditional residence halls (freshman and sophomore housing) are required to purchase one of the four resident meal plans available. We offer a variety of meal plans to fit the needs of all of our students. Along with being able to use student meal swipes in the Residence Dining Hall (The Marketplace), students (excluding the Platinum membership) can use a meal swipe at select retail locations for select meals; this is known as meal equivalencies. Dining Services offer meal plans friendly to students who reside in apartment style living on campus. All dining memberships have been designed to accommodate a variety of types of needs based on a student's busy schedule. Convenience, value and flexibility are three important features our memberships offer. Our dining memberships consist of swipes, Corsair Cash and guest passes. Students have the ability to not only choose which membership works best for them, but they are allowed to choose from levels of Corsair Cash, depending on the membership choice. There is always a place for students to use their meal plans from 7:00 a.m. until midnight!
Charges for the student meal plans are shown in the chapter on Expenses and Student Financial Services.
