Upper-level students (students who graduated from high school prior to January 2022) 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!

Prices are for the 2022/23 academic year. 

Seven-day Meal Plan (best value) - $2,460/semester
Unlimited access Monday – Sunday | 7 guest passes | 3 to-go meals per day

Five-day Meal Plan - $2,205/semester
Unlimited access Monday – Friday | 3 guest passes | 3 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 $15 more per week, meaning you get unlimited access to the dining centers all weekend for only $15! Plus, it comes with an additional four guest passes.

To-go meals: Students with an unlimited plan have the option to take 3 to-go meals per day from the dining center of their choice.
