All students living in Marycrest, Stuart, Founders, Marianist and Virginia Kettering Residence Halls are required to purchase a meal plan. Meal plan options are as follows:

  • Standard Plan – This structured meal plan has a spending allowance associated with it during specific meal periods. If you don't spend the entire allowance for that meal, you lose it. This plan starts with breakfast the first day of classes.

Note: Only one block of funds may be used during each meal period. For example, two blocks may not be used during the lunch meal period on the same day.

  • The Flexible Plan - This is a debit style meal plan and provides complete flexibility, with no specific meal periods and no spending allowances.

Note: There are no refunds on debit plan balances, however, 100% of balances remaining at the end of fall semester will roll over to the spring semester. Plan participation charge applies.

All students living in residence halls must have one of the following:

  • Standard Plan (3 blocks per day, 7 days) - $2,640.00/semester
  • Flexible Plan (debit account) - $2,640.00/semester

When a student does not choose a meal plan the default plan is the Flexible Plan.

Non-resident students may purchase a Neighborhood meal plan (debit account).
