NEW next year (2020/21), upperclassmen students have even more meal plan options, plus the ability to use block plans in more locations.

Changes to Upperclassmen Meal Plan Options

Off-Campus, NDSU Apartments, Niskanen Hall, Mathew Living Learning Centers:
No meal plan requirements. Students may add an unlimited access plan or block plan.

Upperclassmen living the following halls (Burgum, Dinan, Stockbridge, Churchill, Weible, R/J, High Rises, Cater): 
Upperclassmen 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. If a 170 block plan is selected, meal swipes roll over from fall to spring semester (if addition to renewing at spring).
