Meal Plans Designed Just For You
Residential Meal Plans
Dining Services offers four meal plans for students living within the residential halls to choose from. Each plan includes $25.00 in Eagle Flex per quarter (excluding Summer).
First-year students living in the residential halls are required to maintain a Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze meal plan. You will choose a residential meal plan when you complete your University Housing contract. You may opt to submit a meal plan change request throughout each quarter; these changes will be processed for your next attended quarter. Meal plan changes must be received prior to the end of each quarter for processing. Any meal plan change forms submitted after the end of quarter will not be processed for the next quarter.
The Pewter Commuter plan is designed for students living off campus who desire the convenience of a meal plan. This plan includes A la Carte and Eagle Flex. This is a non-reloadable plan. Students can purchase this meal plan directly from the Tawanka Business Office at the beginning of each quarter.
