Spring ’24: Residential Students (Dorms & Suites)

Spring 2024 Semester Meal Plans

One of the three Residential Meal Plans below is required for students living in dorms or suites on campus. Husky Village is considered part of traditional residential housing and students living there are required to have a meal plan.

  • If you are/will be living in a dorm or suite, you have the opportunity to pick your meal plan when filling out the housing form with Residential Life. If you didn't pick a plan you will likely be assigned the value plan. 
  • Meal plans are billed per semester. All meal plan charges are applied directly to the student's fee bill.
  • Which meal plan do I have? You can find out which plan you have by checking your fee bill.
  • CHANGE MEAL PLAN? If you need to upgrade or downgrade your meal plan, the last day to do so for the Spring 2024 semester will be Friday, February 2nd, 2024. Changes after this date for the Spring cannot be accepted. Please fill out our change your plan online form.
  • What if I cancelled my housing? If you have recently cancelled your on-campus housing assignment with Res Life you DO NOT need to contact Dining Services. Your meal plan will automatically be cancelled within 5-7 business days and no further action is needed.
