Required Meal Plan Policy
The UW System Board of Regents requires that all students who reside in traditional residence halls must participate in an approved meal plan option. Students who live off-campus or in South Fork Suites are exempt from this policy but do have the option to participate in any meal plan of their choice. Please read the contract carefully! All students who select or are placed on the mandatory contract are responsible for knowing the information contained in the contract. The contract is a binding agreement between the student and the University.
Special notice: Meal plan costs may or may not remain the same for future contracts. During breaks (Thanksgiving, J-Term, Spring Break), no meal plans are available.

Things to Note
You may choose from any meal plan offered, other than the 60 Block meal plan. The 60 Block plan is only available to students living on-campus who have completed 60 or more credits, students living in South Fork Suites or those students living off-campus.
Meal plan costs and non-returned Freddy 2GO container charges are applied to your eSIS tuition account.
Remember! This is a contract and, as such, any requested changes must be made in writing. Learn more about meal plan additions or changes.
Meal Plan Accommodations
Meal plan accommodations are only considered for medical reasons. A meal plan accommodation form should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
