    Meal Plans

    • 255 Block Plan/$150 Flex Dollars (declining balance)
    • 190 Block Plan/$300 Flex Dollars (declining balance)

    One block is equal to one meal.  Students in the block meal plans are allotted a specific number of meals per semester in the Titan Dining Room.   Flex Dollars can be used in The Loft, Café A la Cart in the Library, and Titan-to-Go in Shiple Hall.  Additional Flex Dollars can be added to any student’s account if the balance runs low.

    When deciding on a meal plan, students should consider their daily routine.  How many meals do you eat a day?  How will your classes, studying, extracurricular activities and social life influence your classes?  Anticipating answers to these and similar questions will help you to choose a plan that fits your lifestyle.  You’ll be asked to select a meal plan when completing the residence hall application.
