Change Your Meal Plan for this Semester by Friday, September 5!

The last day to change meal plans for Fall Semester is Friday, September 5.  After this date, change requests will take effect the following semester.  If you'd like to change your meal plan, you can make your request online or visit us in the Residential Life Office at 111 Carkoski Commons.

Request a Room Change Beginning Monday, September 8!

The opportunity to request a change in your room assignment is coming up.  Monday, September 8 and Tuesday, September 9 are Fall Room Change Days. 

If you'd like to request a change, stop by the Residential Life office, 111 Carkoski Commons, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Approved changes will be processed on the spot.  Residents who have arranged to swap rooms will have the opportunity to change rooms at this time.  Please note that, due to the number of students living in the residence halls, room change opportunities may be limited.

After September 9, room changes can be requested at the front desk of your community and will be managed by the Student Services Coordinator of each community. More information.

Find Food and Convenience Items Located Right in the Residence Communities!

Grilled, frozen and refrigerated foods, in addition to convenience items, can be purchased in both Chet's Place (located in Carkoski Commons behind the Dining Hall) or in The 1872 Grill (located on the main floor in Julia Sears) using Flex Dollars, cash or credit card.

All students living in the residence communities have Flex Dollars or meals that can be converted to Flex Dollars.  Using Flex Dollars, you can make purchases in all University Dining Services locations.  Whenever your balance runs low, you can add Flex Dollars to your account. More information. 

Check out the To-Go Dining Option!

To-Go meals from the Carkoski Dining Hall are available to students on a meal plan whose classes, jobs, or athletic schedules do not enable them to eat during regular service hours.  You can also use your Flex dollars to purchase food items if you are unable to get to the dining hall when it is open.
