Residence Hall Students:

Students residing in a traditional residence hall (Marycrest, Founders, Stuart, Virginia Kettering or Marianist) are required to purchase a meal plan as there is no access to a kitchen for day-to-day use. Students may select the Standard or the Flexible Plan. Meal Plans may be used at all on-campus Dining Services locations (see listing above).

Standard Plan

The Standard Plan is $3,140 per semester and provides breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week, with set meal plan hours and spending allowances. The plan resets every day and any unused meals are forfeited. 

The Standard Plan includes $275 bonus debit dollars that may be used to cover meals exceeding the allowance or to purchase an item when you do not want to use an entire meal. Bonus debit dollars expire at the end of each semester and are not eligible for roll over to the next semester.

Flexible Plan

The Flexible Plan provides complete flexibility in student dining, functioning as a declining balance account. The Flex Plan allows the student the flexibility to eat whenever they want, multiple times a day, and all purchases are deducted from their declining balance account. 

The Flexible Plan costs $3,140 per semester with an $800 overhead fee, giving the student $2,340 to spend for the semester. This fee has been set in place to allow for students to experience state-of-art dining venues on campus as well as afford students the ability to frequent venues all day. 

Any unused funds from the Fall Semester, will rollover in full and will be available for use in the Spring Semester in conjunction with the Spring Meal Plan purchase.  At the end of the academic year, any remaining Flex Meal Plan funds will be forfeited.

UD Housing/Apartment or Commuter Students:

Students residing in the University apartment or housing system, or students that commute to campus may elect to purchase a meal plan, but are not required to do so.

Neighborhood PLAN

Students may purchase Debit Dollars that are exclusive to Dining Services locations (see listing above). Students with this plan receive an additional 10% off purchases when checking out at the register. The Neighborhood Plan operates on a declining balance, but unlike the Flexible Plan, funds may be added at any time and are billed to the student's account.

The Neighborhood Plan is also available to students living in a traditional residence hall (Marycrest, Founders, Stuart, Marianist or V.W.K.) to supplement their Standard or Flexible meal plans.
