Dining & Meal Plans
Meal plans are perfect for students on the go! M Dining offers a variety of different plans to suit the needs of all students. With a meal plan, there's no need to worry about buying groceries or cooking; you're just a U Card swipe away from breakfast, lunch, and dinner! The wide variety of food options available ensures that you'll be able to eat healthy, balanced meals every day. Menus and nutrition information can be found on CampusDish.
You can use your meal plan at any of the six residential restaurants on campus. Whether you're on East Bank, West Bank, or the St. Paul campus, you'll be able to enjoy convenient meals.
Are Meal Plans Required?
A meal plan is required for students assigned to residence halls. The fall 2020 semester meal plan ends on November 25, 2020. HRL residents with the Full Semester contract period will have the option of having a meal plan from November 29, 2020 to December 23, 2020. Note: a meal plan is not required during this period of time.
A meal plan is not required for residents living in Keeler, Radius, Wilkins, and Yudof Hall.
All meal plans include FlexDine dollars. FlexDine is loaded onto your U Card and can be used to pay for meals at all on-campus M Dining locations. Dining on the go is easy with FlexDine: choose from Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, Subway, French Meadow Bakery & Café, and more!
You can add additional FlexDine in $25 increments at any time by visiting M Dining’s website or calling the Meal Plan Office at (612) 624-0558. Unused FlexDine will carry over from semester to semester unless you go an entire year without any activity on your account.
Meal Plan Rates
Meal plan rates are determined by the participation of residents in the past, not by the total amount of meals. Unused meals will not warrant credit. Weekly meals in residence hall meal plans will renew every Monday, and unused meals will expire at that time. Block meal plans are available for students living in an apartment and will expire at the end of the semester.
Meals are not transferable to others. Guests can purchase individual meals with FlexDine, cash, credit card, check, or Gopher GOLD.
