Coronavirus (COVID-19) Dining Information

In order to better support you during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and to provide greater flexibility, we are piloting the addition of two new meal plans this academic year. During the pilot, these plans will be available to students living on- or off-campus and will provide either 180 blocks per semester plus 300 Paw Points or 180 blocks per semester with no Paw Points.

We are thankful for our ongoing partnership with the Student Government Association which always helps us better understand the current needs of students. To read about our temporary dining adjustments and FAQs in response to coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit our notifications page.

*One block is equivalent to one entry into the dining commons or Quick Market (for example, 180 block plans provide you with 180 meals throughout the semester). Blocks do not roll so it is to your advantage to use your blocks each semester so as to not forfeit any unused blocks from fall to spring.

**Please note the pilot meal plans will be reviewed throughout the academic year and while the plans are currently being made available to all students, eligibility and plan specifics may change for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Frequently Asked Questions

These plans are being piloted to provide as much flexibility and choice as possible for students during the unprecedented challenges we are currently facing. However, we offer many different options to meet the diverse needs of our campus. The pilot plans provide a good option for students looking for about two meals per day with or without a little extra for additional retail purchases at places such as Starbucks, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, and more. We continue to offer unlimited, all-access plans so students do not have to worry about how many blocks they’ve used. For $126 more per semester, a student may enjoy 7-day all-access dining at our five dining commons plus 110 Paw Points as compared to the 180-block plan with 300 Paw Points. View our all-access plans online.

While you may use your blocks at your convenience each semester, many of our commuter plans provide approximately one meal per day with additional value toward retail dining purchases. The pilot plans would provide additional meals in our residential dining facilities, allowing commuters the option to have up to approximately two meals per day in our residential dining commons if they would like. View our commuter plans online.

During this period of temporary dining adjustments, residential dining locations will be open for meal plan participants only. Those using credit/debit or Bulldog Bucks to purchase food may do so at our retail dining locations.
