Dining Plan Meal Credits

Meal credits give students access to 805 Kitchen, our residential all-you-care-to-eat dining hall at a significant discount. For one meal credit, they can enjoy a variety of cuisines from five unique food stations including one dedicated to sustainable, allergen-free and nutrient-dense options. 805 Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, fueling students throughout their day.

In addition to our residential dining hall, students can also use meal credits at other Campus Dining locations and enjoy a great meal at a discounted price. For example, at Red Radish, the place to go for the ultimate salad on campus, students can get a build-your-own salad or wrap, and a fountain drink using a meal credit. Students can always add on to their meal using their declining balance funds, cash or credit card.

For a list of meal credit options available see below. These examples are just a taste of what’s offered. Meal credit options change often based on student feedback, seasonality and availability.
