The last day to add points to your meal plan is 5/4/16.  The last day to use all additional on-campus meal plan points is 5/14/16. Dining closes immediately following brunch on 5/14/16.  Dining is not open for Senior Week.  Students remaining on campus through commencement should make arrangements for meals and shopping.

Meal Plan tip: Use meal swipes first. Save your points for staples and the occasional meal at non traditional dining locations (WesWings).  When using points in marketplace, use them for breakfast - its the least expensive meal to spend points on!


Marketplace policy reminder: When dining in Marketplace you may have multiple servings while you remain within the facility. You CANNOT swipe in, eat, leave and return during the same meal time period and eat again on that same swipe.  If you leave and return then you must pay for a second meal.
