UMass Lowell will resume on-campus instruction, research and campus life for Fall 2020. View the plan for more info.

University Dining


UMass Lowell Dining Services provides three meal plan options for residential students. These meal plans give students choices, flexibility and the River Hawk dollars they crave. All of the new plans include eight guest meals each semester-allowing students to bring their friends and family into the dining halls when they visit!

Students living in the residence halls must sign up for one of the three meal plan options. Resident students in the following unit types (River Hawk Village - Standard, Deluxe, Townhouse Deluxe units, and Riverview Suites) are not required to sign up for a meal plan. Those students in studio (formerly called traditional) units in River Hawk Village ARE required to have a meal plan.

Here are the details for each plan:

  • Platinum:
    Unlimited Meal Swipes into the Dining Halls, 350 River Hawk dollars and 8 guest meals (per semester)
  • Gold:
    Unlimited Meal Swipes into the Dining Halls, 200 River Hawk dollars and 8 guest meals (per semester)
  • Silver:
    125 Meal Swipes, 450 River Hawk Dollars and 5 Guest meal swipes (per semester)
