Meal Plan Options

Meal plans are required for students living in Residential Life Housing. The Maverick 250 Dining Dollars meal plan may only be selected through September 3, 2021.  After that date has passed, only students who are living at Stadium Heights or moving to Stadium Heights are eligible to change to it.

Each plan has one or two components: a designated amount of meals to use in the dining center and/or Dining Dollars. The meal plan determines the number of meals available in the University Dining Center. Dining Dollars are prepaid dollars on the student's MavCARD that can be used at any campus dining location.
