Meal Plans

All students living in Hogle, Carleson, Olwell, Behnken, Stock, and college-owned houses are required to be on one of 2 meal plans offered for the entire academic year. Meals are served at the Cornerstone Cafe in the Shaw Student Center or Griff's Roost Coffee Shop in the Bassis Center.

Fall-term meal plan balances carry over to spring term and spring-term balances carry over to May Term if on-campus residency continues. If at any time a resident moves out of the halls—thus ending or breaking their room and board contract—their remaining meal plan balances are non-refundable.

Students may request an exemption from the meal plan for extreme medical or religious dietary restrictions by filling out the meal plan exemption form.
