Our meal plan means no declining balance that you have to worry about! This means that you can eat what you want and you won't run out of money!

24/7 during Fall and Spring

The Dining Hall is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during the Fall and Spring terms, so you can eat at a REAL student's schedule, which includes 2AM meals after a late-night study session! Summer term hours are 7 am – 10 pm. The best part is that the meal plans are open to everyone whether you live in Towers, Shell, McTaggart, Hamilton Hall, or Townhouses!
