2017-2018 Meal Plans

Fall and Spring Semester Plans

Students have many dining options available. Each plan has two components: a designated amount of meals to use in the dining hall and Dining Dollars. Each meal plan determines the number of meals available for either the week or the semester (depending upon the plan chosen). Dining Dollars are like a prepaid debit account that can be used at any of the campus dining facilities.


Maverick AnyTime Plan

Unlimited Dine-In Access / Includes 100 Dining Dollars Per Semester
This ultimate meal plan is the closest thing to having your own kitchen. This plan allows you unlimited access to the University Dining Center. Stop by at 11:30 for a quick lunch on your way to class, return for a snack mid-afternoon, and stop by again for a soda before dinner begins with this ultra-flexible plan. You can also choose, instead, to put together a To-Go container to bring with you for your day.

The $100 per semester in Dining Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. These Dollars carry over from Fall Semester to Spring Semester. Dining Dollars not used by the end of Spring Semester will be forfeited.


Maverick 14 Plan

14 Meals per Week / Includes 200 Dining Dollars Per Semester
The 14 meals per week plan appeals to students who may only eat two meals each day or to those who want to eat all of their meals during the weekdays. This plan ensures that you have meals available to you in the dining center every week of the semester. One meal may be used during each of the three meal periods — breakfast, lunch (or brunch on weekends), and dinner. To-Go containers are available on this plan as well.

The $200 per semester in Dining Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. These Dollars carry over from Fall Semester to Spring Semester. Dining Dollars not used by the end of Spring Semester will be forfeited.


Maverick 160 Plan

160 Meals per Semester / Includes 25 Dining Dollars Per Semester/ Ability to Convert Meals to Dining Dollars
This plan offers the ultimate flexibility to customize your meal plan. Start out with $25 Dining Dollars and an allotment of meals for the semester, then eat as many (or as few) meals each week as you would like — up to 160 meals for the entire semester. Plus, add the unique ability to convert any of the 160 meals a semester into Dining Dollars at a rate of $5.70 per meal, twice a semester (by November 30 for Fall  Semester and April 30 for Spring Semester). With this plan, you can determine whether you want more traditional meals in the dining hall or greater flexibility with Dining Dollars to be used at any dining venue on campus. Also available is the ability to take a To-Go container out of the dining hall. Semesters are approximately 16 weeks long, resulting in an average of 10 meals per week.

The $25 per semester in Dining Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. Your converted Dining Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. Dining Dollars not used by the end of EACH SEMESTER will be forfeited.


Maverick 250 Dining Dollars Plan

250 Dining Dollars Per Semester / No Meals Included
The $250 per semester in Dining Dollars included with this plan can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. These Dollars carry over from Fall Semester to Spring Semester. Dining Dollars not used by the end of Spring Semester will be forfeited. Students are welcome to use their Dining Dollars to buy meals in the dining hall at the per-meal door rate, as no specific number of meals are included in this plan. A limited number of these plans are available. Please contact us for information about availability.
