Compare the Meal Plans

The total number of meals you will be able to purchase with each meal plan will depend on your eating habits and lifestyle. Students who will be eating in the dining commons may use more points per meal than those who purchase grab-n-go items at a grocery outlet, for example. The price of meals at restaurants, cafes, and grocery outlets varies. Dining commons prices are set by the meal and are all-you-care-to-eat.
