Block Plans

Block plans are extremely popular for staff, faculty, and students living off campus. All plans can be purchased online (below) or in person at any NDSU Dining office location. The Meal Block is purchased in increments of 25 meals. The meals can be used at all three dining centers, plus the Barry Hall Coffee Shop and the Food Court. Plan holders may use their meal passes for themselves and accompanying guests. 

NEW FOR UPPERCLASSMEN: A 170 Block may be purchased at the same meal rate as the 100 Block. This can fulfill the meal plan requirement for living in a residence hall. The 170 block plan provides approximately ten meals per week, and meal swipes do roll over from fall to spring semester. Students living in a hall that requires a meal plan, and who have selected a 170 block plan, will automatically be enrolled for that same plan in the spring. 


The more you buy, the more you save! Tax will be added to faculty, staff and affiliate purchases upon checkout. 

25 Block               $225.00 (9.00/meal)
50 Block               $425.00 (8.50/meal)
75 Block               $581.25 (7.75/meal)
100+ Block           $700+   (7.00/meal)
