All residents living in University Residence Halls in the 2022-23 academic year will be required to select a weekly dining plan. Your dining plan gives you a designated number of meals per week based on the plan you select. There are three options for you to choose from. Explore them and consider which option will fit your schedule and eating habits best. If you have questions or would like help finding the best fit for you, reach out to us at email@example.com.
