Meal Plan Information
Dining Program is pleased to offer a summer meal plan program to students residing in summer housing or full-time students living off campus. Students will have the option of purchasing from three different Dining Dollars only plans which will be added to your J-Card. Dining Dollars have a dollar-for-dollar value. For instance, purchasing a $6.00 meal costs six Dining Dollars. For 2019, the Meal Plan program dates will be available in the Spring of 2019. The information below will assist you in making an informed decision about which dining plan is right for you. The Meal Plan program is optional.
What should I know about dining this summer?
The Dining Dollar Plan is a declining balance program you can only use in Fresh Food Cafe' (FFC), Levering Kitchens, Levering Cafe' and Bamboo Cafe' during your summer term. The Dining Dollars is not accepted at dining facilities off the Homewood campus. Each time your J-Card is swiped, Dining Dollars will be deducted from your available balance based on the amount of your purchase.
Full meals in a traditional all-you-care-to-eat buffet setting can be enjoyed at Fresh Food Cafe' (FFC). Cost of entry to the facility varies depending on the meal, and will be set in early 2019 and subject to final approval by the University. Levering Kitchens, Levering Cafe' and Bamboo are a retail a la carte venues. The hours of service for the summer in each dining facility will vary. Please check the calendar on the dining website for hours of operations by location and any operation closings.

Which Dining plan should I choose?
There are three Dining Dollar plans being offered: 800 Dining Dollars, 500 Dining Dollars, and 300 Dining Dollars. You should choose based on the number of meals you think you will eat and how long you will stay during the summer terms. For example: if you are planning to be here for only a month and tend not to eat breakfast, the 300 Dining Dollar plan may be the best option for you. Students should keep in mind that you can always sign up for additional dining dollars but there is no refund on any unused dining dollars, nor do unused dining dollars carry over into the academic year, so be sure to put some planning into your selection. Students can purchase additional dining dollars in increments of 100 Dining Dollars for the amount of $100 by going back into the on-line registration, once you see your balance declining. You are not able to purchase the 100 Dining Dollars add-on unless you have already previously purchased one of the three meal plans.
How much does each meal plan cost?
The plans are priced as follows and can be purchased on-line through the summer meal plan registration or can be purchased once you arrive to campus and determine which meal plan you prefer. If you wish to purchase a plan when you arrive, visit the on-line registration. If you have questions, please contact the Dining Office at 410-516-3383.

What is the refund or cancellation policy?
