Resident Meal Plans
The five different dining options offered allow your son or daughter to choose the dining plan which best meets their needs.
The 19 Plan
The 19 plan provides a busy student with every meal offered in the Dining Hall each week. There are 19 meals offered every week, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through Sunday. It is up to the student which meals they eat, but the plan covers all 19.
The 14 Plan
This plan gives your student 14 meals per week and the flexibility to eat elsewhere a few times per week. For example, if your son or daughter ate all 14 meals during the week, they would have Friday night, Saturday and Sunday (5 meals) to eat out with their friends, go home for the weekend or just order in pizza. As always, it is up to the student which meals they eat. In the Fall semester, the 14 Plan averages 233 meals and the Spring semester averages 228.
The 14 Flex Plan
This plan is the same as the 14 Plan, but it gives your student $125 per semester on their Bulldog Card which they may spend at any dining facility on campus. This gives them the opportunity to eat at any dining facility on campus along with the meals in the Dining Hall.
The 10 Flex Plan
Here’s the plan for those of you who never know when or where your next meal will be because of your hectic schedule. The 10 Flex Plan allows you to eat your choice of 10 meals of the 19 meals offered in the Dining Hall. You’ll also receive $125 on your Bulldog Card to use anywhere on campus. This lets you eat in the Dining Hall when you can make time, or just grab something at the Food Court! The Fall semester averages 176 meals and Spring semester averages 170.
The 7 Plan (**only for returning students)
Okay, we know you all are busy college students who are doing everything under the sun. So here’s what we’ve come up with for those of you who seem to go days without eating a proper meal. The 7 Plan allows you to eat seven meals in the Dining Hall. Of the 19 meals offered, it is our hope that you can make it in for seven of them. At least for a break from your daily grind! Again, it is your choice which seven meals you eat! The Fall semester averages 117 and Spring semester averages 115.
**Qualifying students are returning residents who resided in the University Courtyard for the full previous license agreement term.
Meal Plan changes for the 2011-2012 academic year are only accepted during the weeks of September 5-9 or January 30 - February 3. Meal Plan Change Applications can be picked up and dropped off at the Dining Services Office, located underneath the University Dining Hall, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm weekdays.

January 17, 2012 Brunch - May 18, 2012 Breakfast
One meal may be taken per meal period, and each student must use his or her own card. If the card is used in an unauthorized manner, it will be held for the student in the Bulldog Card Office and there is a $25 fee to have it returned to the student. If the card is lost, the student is permitted meal passes for three days while the card is located. Thereafter the student must buy a replacement card. These passes are only issued Monday through Friday between 8:00 am - 5:00 pm from the Dining Services Office. A student with a missing card, who had not obtained passes during the week, will have to pay cash for meals. If that student reports to the Dining Services Office before 5:00 pm the next business day and can verify they were entitled to that meal, the money will be refunded, but only if the student has the receipt for payment.
University Courtyard residents with a 14, 14-Flex, or 19 meal plan will be allowed up to 20 meals for guests per semester for the purpose of using meals from a resident’s existing meal plan. University Courtyard residents with a 7 or 10-Flex meal plan will be allowed up to 10 guest meals per semester. Guest meals will be deducted from the total number of meals available for the student. Students must present their Bulldog Card (campus ID). In order for the guest to be admitted, the guest must be accompanied by the student.
