Dining Hall Services

Resident Students

Each resident student is automatically enrolled in the unlimited dining meal plan. This means your student can eat in the dining hall any time the doors are open – they will never run out of meals!  It is for his/her use only.

Our meal plan also comes with $50 flex points and 15 exchange meals per semester.

Commuter Students

Commuter students can purchase flex points for use in the dining hall, the Oaks, and Holy Grounds.  These operate as a declining balance on your ID.  They can be purchased anytime online at https://oncampusdining.com/oak.  We offer incredible deals!
