Students living in apartments or commuting

Apartment and commuter students have the option to choose a meal plan at any time, but it is best to make the request by August 21. In addition to being able to take advantage of any of the residential meal plans, on-campus apartment residents or commuters may sign up for semester block meal plans or Dining Dollars plans—a flexible option for students with a busy schedule. Meal swipes can be used at Middlebrook, 17th Ave, Sanford, Bailey, or Pioneer restaurants.
