On Campus Food Plans

All students living on campus will be automatically enrolled in one of the following food plans depending on their residence hall room type. Each plan includes both meal swipes into the dining halls and River Hawk Dollars which can be used at a variety of retail locations on campus for quick grab and go meals, snacks and drinks or for items in the campus POD Market such as cleaning supplies and groceries. River Hawk Dollars are valid for the full academic year, with any unused value rolling over from fall to spring. All River Hawk Dollars expire on the last day of spring semester.

  • Unlimited 400 Plan: Unlimited meals at dining halls, $400 River Hawk Dollars per semester
  • Unlimited 200 Plan: Unlimited meals at dining halls, $200 River Hawk Dollars per semester
  • Apartment Meal Plan: 7 meals per week at dining halls, $1,000 River Hawk Dollars per semester

Tradition Room and Suite Food Plan

The default meal plan for students living in traditional rooms and suites is the Unlimited 400 Plan which provides great value and flexibility in dining locations. Students can also change to the Unlimited 200 if they wish.

Apartment Food Plan

Students living in Riverview Suites West Apartments and River Hawk Village may select between the Apartment Plan and an Unlimited Plan.



There are numerous dining locations to sit down for a meal or grab food on the go for convenience. For a complete list of all dining locations and operating hours please visit the University Dining website.
