Upper-level students have a variety of meal plan options, plus the ability to use block plans in more locations. 

Unlimited Access Plans

Unlimited access plans allow you to pop into any of our three dining centers as many times as you want. Bison Beanery – the full-service coffee shop within the RDC – is included in this plan. Enjoy the flexibility to grab snacks, meals or coffee anytime you want from 7am-11pm!

Seven-day Meal Plan (best value) - $2,389/semester

Unlimited access Monday – Sunday
7 guest passes | 7 to-go meals per day

Five-day Meal Plan - $2,163/semester

Unlimited access Monday – Friday
3 guest passes | 7 to-go meals per day

Need help deciding between the five- and seven-day plans? The five-day plan is only recommended for students who plan to leave campus every weekend. The seven-day plan is only $13 more per week, meaning you get unlimited access to the dining centers all weekend for only $13! Plus, it comes with an additional four guest passes.

To-go meals Students with an unlimited plan have the option to take 2 to-go meals at breakfast, 2 to-go meals at lunch, 2 to-go meals at dinner and 1 during late night, for a total of 7 per day. Additional to-go meals are provided this year to allow students with more flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Any student who lives off campus or in the NDSU apartments (1701, Bison Court, UV, and Niskanen Exp) is eligible for an upper-level meal plan. See below for more information. 

    Upper-level students living in a traditional or suite-style hall (Burgum, Dinan, Stockbridge, Churchill, Weible, R/J, High Rises, Cater): 
    Upper-level students can select one of three options: five-day, seven-day, or a 170 block plan (per semester). All meals plans automatically renew for the spring semester.
