    Good Afternoon,

     

    Does your college/university have a mandatory meal plan participation for students?

     

    If so who is required to participate?

    Five years ago we began requiring meal plans for upperclass students.  Prior to this point the only requirement was a full meal plan for first year students.  Sophomore, Junior and Senior students are now required to get at least a 75-Block plan each semester (works about to about 4 meals per week).  This is required for both residential and off-campus students.  Best, Richard

    Hi All,  At RISD all first-year students have to be on the Foundation plan (basically an unlimited plan).  After that, the plan requirements are associated with the type of accommodations you are in: Essential RISD, Suite Experience, and Apartment Experience. Essential RISD and Suite Experience packages include one of two full meal plans with a varying mix of meal swipes and dining points. Apartment Experience rooms come with the Flex 7‐60 Dining Plan. Students living in these rooms can choose to enroll in the Foundation or Residential Dining Plans for an additional fee or can opt to a lower Flex plan.

    For those of you that require all on campus students to have a meal plan....do your Res. Halls have kitchens in them?

    There are kitchens available in residence halls for about ½ of our upper class student population.

    1. Students who live on campus in resident hall with no cooking facilities are required to have meal plan.
    2. Students who live in an on campus apartment style resident hall with cooking facilities are not required to have a meal plan.

    Brian,

     

    For all of our students who live on campus in a residence hall with no kitchen facilities, they have a mandatory board requirement.

     

    For all of our students who live on campus in a residence hall with kitchen facilities, they are not required to purchase a meal plan.

    Hi Michael,

    We have a four year requirement for anyone who lives on campus.  All first year students are required to have the unlimited plan and then we do a graduated reduction in plans offered based on year.  Our plans range from unlimited, 190 block, 160 block, 90 block and 75 block.  We do a pre-assigned plan based on year and students then may either increase or decrease their plan.  Hope this helps!

    ​Here at North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC all persons living on campus are required to have a residential meal plan. In addition, all freshmen are required to have a 21 meal plan which is our highest meal plan offering. Our 21 meal plan will be changing to a 19 meal plan starting this coming Fall semester.
