Meal Plan Details and Policies

Roosevelt University requires a dining plan for residents to foster community, discourage unlawful cooking in dormitory rooms and to encourage participation in special events that greatly enhance the university experience. The dining plan is designed to provide students with maximum purchasing power and flexibility in when and how they use their dining dollars. The benefit to the Roosevelt declining balance plan is that students can utilize every dollar of the plan. We encourage students to budget and utilize every dollar of their meal plan throughout the year.

All Wabash residents are required to have at least the Standard Meal Plan which provides $1776 per semester in dining spending. A Deluxe Plan is available which offers $2000 in dining spending. If you want to upgrade to the deluxe plan, please contact Residence Life.

Meal plan balances carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester but do not carry over into summer sessions or from one academic year to the next academic year.

Any balances remaining at the end of a given academic year are forfeited and are non-refundable.

If you leave the residence hall within the first five weeks of an academic term a refund will be credited for the amount remaining on the plan minus a 10% termination fee.

After the first five weeks of a given academic term no meal plan credit will be available and the remaining balance will be forfeited.

If you leave the Wabash residence hall but remain a student of Roosevelt University, the remaining balance of your plan will remain available for your use on a non-resident basis. The meal plan is accessed using your University ID Card and is not transferable. In order to help prevent meal plan fraud and theft, please adhere to the following policies:

  • If you lose your card, notify security and dining immediately.
  • You cannot give your card to someone else to use your plan.
  • Purchasing food for friends or family is permissible only in your presence.
  • You must have your University ID card with you to access your meal plan.
  • If you have lost your ID and reported the loss, please see a dining manager to access your plan.

To-go meals are available for your convenience but please consider the environment before taking to-go containers. All containers must remain open until exiting the cashier area.

Meal plan value can be used for traditional meals, pre-packaged retail items, delivered pizza and cookies and catering for private events. Please contact Dining Services or Residence Life for further information.
