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

Meal Plan Options

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 (in addition to renewing at spring). Meal plans are selected during the housing sign-up process.

Niskanen Hall and Mathew Living Learning Centers:
No meal plan requirements. Students may add an unlimited access plan or block plan during housing sign up or by accessing GET

Off-Campus and NDSU Apartments:
No meal plan requirements. Students may purchase a meal or block plan by accessing GET

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.
