Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

  • Do I need to buy a meal plan?
    All students that are living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan. While a meal plan purchase is not required for off-campus students, many students take advantage of the convenience and value a meal plan has to offer. View our “On-Campus” meal plans here and view our “Off-Campus” meal plans here. 

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    All meal plans are a two-semester commitment. If you sign up for a meal plan in the Fall, you will automatically be enrolled for the same meal plan in the Spring. All changes must be done online or in the Eagle Dining office before the University's deadline to charge to student accounts. 

  • Will unused meals, bonus bucks, or dining dollars roll over? 
    It depends on what meal plan you have. All on-campus meal plans and bonus bucks expire at the end of the semester. In regards to off campus meal plans, the Daily 9 meal plan expires but the Campus Connector meal plan rolls over to the next semester. Campus Connector must be renewed in the spring.  All dining dollars will roll over to the next semester.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    Yes, but meal plan change requests must be submitted to the Eagle Dining Office by the university charge deadline in the beginning of each semester. For questions, give us a call at 601-266-5376.
Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
