34. Dining Halls (Revised: 2002)
Visit the Department of Food Services home page for facility hours, dining options, meal plans and daily menus.
All students residing in campus housing are required to purchase a 15 meal/week or 21 meal/week board plan. Exceptions to this requirement will only be granted for physician required medical reasons and must be approved by the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs & Auxiliary Services. The meal plan begins with breakfast on the first class day and ends with dinner the last day of finals. Spring break and Christmas break are not included. Students on the meal plan who miss lunch or dinner in the cafeteria may eat in the Galley at no additional charge.
At the beginning of each semester, students who have signed up for a meal plan option will have their meal plan automatically validated if the request has been made through the regular registration process and fees have been paid. Students may change meal plans during the first twelve class days of a semester or term without penalty through application to the Department of Food Services. A meal plan may be initiated at any time during the semester or term by paying the appropriate fee at the Fiscal Office.
Meal plans are non-transferable from the owner. Lending a student ID card or temporary meal card to another individual for the purpose of obtaining meals is prohibited.
Food or dining hall equipment shall not be taken from the dining halls.
Announcements made in the dining halls require prior approval of the Office of Student Affairs.
Students participating in or encouraging disturbances in the dining halls will be subject to disciplinary action. Students will be billed for the total cost of replacing items broken, damaged or destroyed as a result of mischievous conduct, carelessness and wanton destruction.
Non-paying students or guests are not permitted to enter the dining halls except with permission of authorized dining hall personnel.
The conditions of a meal plan, including the number of times students are allowed to enter the dining center during a meal period, are dependent on the plan purchased and subject to terms established by the Food Services Office.
