All on-campus residence hall students are required to purchase a Meal Plan. Meal Plan preference can be noted when completing the Housing Application/Roommate Survey. Commuters and off-campus residents may also select a meal plan by contacting our office directly. Meal Plan charges are added to the student's billing account and accessed via the student's ID card.
All Meal Plans come with Pirate Bucks – a declining balance of points used to buy items at on-campus retail food operations, including Jersey Mike's, Dunkin', Pirate Bowls, Café Jubilee, Pirate Express, and the Ghost Kitchen (the mobile ordering food locker concept located just outside of the Living Room in the University Center). Pirate Bucks' balances carry over from the Fall to Spring semester, but are non-refundable at the end of the spring semester. Unused Pirate Bucks are forfeited when a meal plan is canceled. Meal Plans also include guest swipes which are used for treating friends or family without Meal Plans to a meal in the dining hall.
Meal Plan Rates
|Meal Plan||Meals||Pirate Bucks||Guests||Semester Charge|

***Meal Plan 2 is available to commuters, Ora, and Turrell residents only.
Meal Plan Changes
Students have until the last day of Add/Drop (ten days into each semester) to change their Meal Plan. They may change their plan by contacting our office.
All Fall Meal Plans carry over to the Spring semester unless the student opts to change their Meal Plan.
Pirates Gold and Pirate Bucks
