Meal Plans

Meal plans are flexible ways of making sure that you get to eat what you want, when you want it. 

Meal plans for Residence Hall Students (Chicago Campus)

If you live in the Wabash Building, you may purchase a Standard or Deluxe plan ($3,700 or $4,150 for the 2016-17 academic year). That money goes into a flex dollar account which you can spend on anything in the McCormick Dining Center, and is deducted from your account with each purchase. Students will receive half of their annual meal allowance purchased each semester and can purchase more flex dollars if they run out.

If you live in the University Center, you may purchase a plan for 10 to 19 meals per week, to be used in the University Center Dining Hall. 

Meal plans Commuter Students (Chicago Campus)
  • Save 10% on every transaction at the McCormick Dining Center by using a meal plan card. Add money to the card, then use it to purchase meals or grab-and-go items whenever you like.
  • Meal plans work as a declining balance, and the balance lasts for the fall through spring academic year.
  • Meal plans can be used to buy food for friends or family, but you must be present and make the purchase yourself. Meal plans are not transferable.
