Traditional Meal Plans

A variety of meal plans have been designed to accommodate the needs of all students. All freshmen and first year resident students on campus are required to participate in a meal plan and are automatically enrolled. Freshmen/transfer students must choose between the 19, 15, or 10 meal plan options. Students have the opportunity to change their meal plans each semester and all changes are carried over to the next semester.

What's included?

Each meal plan includes meals allocated on a weekly basis, ten guest passes per semester, and Dining Dollars – all right on your Husky Card. The Dining Dollars program allows you a variety of dining options including the flexibility of eating meals outside the residential dining rooms at other retail dining locations on and around campus, including the award-winning Curry Dining. The ten guest passes included with each meal plan allow your friends and family to dine with you when visiting campus. In addition, you can also use your guest passes or Dining Dollars at the residential dining rooms if you have depleted your meals for the week. Dining Dollars and guest passes must be used within the semester and do not roll over to subsequent semesters. Meals are apportioned on a weekly basis.

How does it work?

Meal plans and Dining Dollars are accessed via your student identification, the Husky Card. Each time you enter a dining room or visit a retail dining location, the system subtracts either a meal or the cost from your card. After each use, the balance of meals or Dining Dollars remaining appears on the terminal.

The meal plan week runs from Sunday morning breakfast through Saturday evening dinner.

Please be advised: due to operational needs and/or seasonal renovations, the hours of operation at each dining facility may vary during holidays, semester breaks, and summer sessions. Individual dining locations may also be closed during these periods as well.

For the latest updates about changes in hours of operation, please visit the Hours of Operation page or follow NUDining on Facebook and Twitter.
