Meal Plans

All on-campus residence hall students are required to purchase a Meal Plan. Commuters and off-campus residents may also select a meal plan by emailing shuhousing@shu.edu. 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 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 emailing shuhousing@shu.edu.

All Fall Meal Plans carry over to the Spring semester unless the student opts to change their Meal Plan. 

Pirates Gold and Pirate Bucks  

Pirate's Gold is a debit account students can use to purchase items or pay for services on and off campus. From buying a textbook or getting a snack, Pirate's Gold is both easier and faster than using cash. Pirate's Gold can be added to a student's ID Card by clicking the link below:
