The goal of the University dining services is to provide a quality, cost-effective, innovative dining program for students living on and off campus. The University encourages student involvement and awareness to help provide quality, nutritious meals at a reasonable cost. Dining locations provide an important environment for student interaction and socialization. Students living in the residence halls, as well as commuters, may choose from a variety of meal plans. All students who live in lower-campus University residence halls must participate in the meal program. Detailed university dining services information is available on the university website.
