Meal Plans

Residents

Resident students are required to select a meal plan when they make their residence hall selection. Meal plan offerings vary based on class year and residence hall and may include 10, 14 or 18 meals per week. Students have access to their meal plans Sunday through Saturday, one swipe per meal period. Unused meals do not roll over from week-to-week or from term-to-term.

Every meal plan also offers flex dollars that are loaded onto the student's JWU ID card and can be used at any dining location. This allows students to make smaller purchases rather than utilizing a full meal swipe. Flex dollars can also be used for guest meals. The balance will decline as flex dollars are used. Flex dollars are allotted each term and unused dollars roll over from week-to-week but expire at the end of the term and cannot be rolled over to a new term.

All students also have the ability to purchase individual meals at the door or Wildcat Meals in blocks of 10, 25 or 50. Additional flex dollars in increments of $25 may also be purchased. Wildcat Meal blocks and additional flex dollars may be purchased online. All Wildcat Meals and additional flex dollars roll over from term-to-term but expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased. The cost of the Wildcat Meal Plan and additional flex dollars is nonrefundable.

Once a student has paid for the plan, they can check the status of meals and flex dollars by visiting campus dining. The student must present a valid student ID to receive this information.

Commuters

Commuter students have the ability to purchase Wildcat Meals in blocks of 10, 25 or 50, as well as additional flex dollars in increments of $25. Wildcat Meal blocks and additional flex dollars may be purchased online. All Wildcat Meals and additional flex dollars roll over from term-to-term but expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased. The cost of the Wildcat Meal Plan and additional flex dollars is nonrefundable.

Guests

Guests may purchase a single meal at the door or use Wildcat Meals or flex dollars from their escort's card at the Wildcat Dining Center or Outtakes.

Hours

Dining services are closed during class and holiday breaks. Up-to-date listings are posted in the student dining center and on the Dining Services website.

Policies

Students are expected to act and dress in an appropriate manner while in campus dining facilities. Specific rules may be posted at each facility. Students must present their student ID card to gain entrance into the Wildcat Dining Center. Lost or stolen cards must be reported to Campus Safety & Security to prevent unauthorized use.

Food may not be taken out of the dining hall unless an eco clam-shell (to-go container) is purchased. Students may keep the container and exchange it daily for a clean container for no additional cost.

The dining hall is only for students, faculty and staff who have purchased a meal or anyone who has purchased a meal at the door.
