Non-Residents, Faculty & Staff

Non-Resident Students, Faculty & Staff can also purchase a meal plan.

Living off campus doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the convenience and value of a meal plan. In fact, there is a plan that was designed specifically for the needs of non-resident students, plus staff and faculty. Let us do the dishes while you enjoy all the benefits and value of a meal plan created especially for you.
