Housing Residential Life
Dining Services

Because We Know Meals Are Important.

Housing and Residential Life works very closely with our campus dining vendor to ensure that our residents have the best possible dining experience. Whether it is taking a trip around the world through themed dinner nights, tasting some down-home family recipes, or eating that traditional mouth watering burger, we guarantee that you’ll find something you like.

Culinary options ranging from fresh and healthy to traditional comfort foods are available through both the main campus dining hall and the Village Cafe. In addition, those with medically required special diets need not fear as appropriate meals will be prepared when prescribed and approved in writing by a medical doctor. By becoming a member of the Village family you are not only on the fast track to academic success, you get to take advantage of a wide variety of meal choices and cooking is optional!

Choosing a Meal Plan......
Campus Dining Services offers residents several meal plan options. Meal plans are required for all campus housing contracts.

Meal plans have two components: 

  • Block meals can be used for breakfast and dinner. 
    • Main Dining:  Breakfast is offered Monday-Friday (block special)
    • Village Cafe: Dinner is offered Monday-Sunday (block all-you-care-to-eat). Brunch is offered Saturday-Sunday (block all-you-care-to-eat)
  • Flex dollars can be used at any of the campus dining locations and function as a declining amount of funds.

Each week residents have 14 opportunities to utilize their blocks for personal use. 

1)   5 for breakfast at Main Dining

2)   9 for dinner and brunch at the Village Cafe

Reminder - Each plan comes with an annual number of block meals per contract. The meals will be distributed by term and roll between terms, but you must use them all by the end the contract length or they are forfeit.

Note:  Sophomore and Upperclass residents may also select freshman meal plans in the event a full plan is desired.  All residents are required to have a meal plan.

Warrior Card

Meal plans are administered through your Warrior Card, which functions both as a university ID and as a declining dollar card. Meal plan dollars are assigned on an annual basis and are allocated by semester.

How Do I Add Money to My Card?
Students who wish to add additional dollars to their card or learn more about the uses of their Warrior Card may do so by visiting the Warrior Card website at http://www.warriorcard.com. The dollars you add (in Warrior Cash) can be used in the bookstore, dining, etc. (these are distinct from meal plan dollars).

Where Can I Spend My Meal Plan Money?
That’s simple. During the operating hours of any Campus Dining Facility, including:

  • Main Dining
  • Warrior Grill
  • Pop’s Convenience Store
  • Village Café
  • MSR Coffee Stand (Starbuck’s coffee served)

Unused meal plan balances will roll forward from one semester to the next, but must be used during the academic year for which they are purchased; Fall 2012 through Spring 2013. Meal plan funds must be expended the last day of the contract period. Funds not expended are forfeit to Campus Dining.
