Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

  • Do I need to buy a meal plan?
    Students with on-campus housing are required to have a meal plan, students off campus are not. However, it is still very beneficial for off-campus students to purchase a meal plan, especially athletes and students that are very involved. Meal plans are an easy and convenient way to work important nutrition into a busy schedule.

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    Students with on-campus housing will have their plan auto renew from Fall to Spring semester. If a student lives off campus and wants to add a meal plan, they will not have a meal plan assigned to them and will need to sign up either through their Banner Web or in the Residence Life Office.

  • Will unused meals or Dining Dollars roll over? 
    Unused Dining Dollars will roll over from Fall to Spring semesters but are forfeited at the end of the Spring semester. Unused meals from the Block 125, Block 175, Block 250, Senior Block 100 or the Unlimited plans do not roll over to the next semester. The Block 48 plan does roll over from the Fall Semester to the following Spring Semester upon purchase of a new Block 48 plan.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    Yes! You are allowed to alter your dining plan up to the last day of the add/drop enrollment period of each semester. Please check the JCU Residence Life webpage for Add/Drop deadlines.
Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
