Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed to meet your unique needs. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

Freshmen and Sophomores living on campus must have a meal plan. Commuters will need to sign up for a meal plan each semester. These are already set up for you through your housing contract. You will have the option to change your meal plan for the first two weeks of each semester. The two week period will start the first day of classes.

All students who live in our residence halls must have a meal plan. First-year and sophomore students who live in the residence halls must have the All Access meal plan.  Juniors and seniors who live in the residence halls can choose between the All Access meal plan and the 75-Block meal plan. Students living in the Hamline Apartments are not required to have a meal plan, but can choose to add on a meal plan of their choice. Hamline Apartment residents get $200 of Declining Balance on their account each semester, which is included in their room rate.

Commuter students are automatically assigned to the Commuter Declining Balance meal plan. Commuter students will get $100 of Declining Balance added to their account each semester. This meal plan is mandatory and added directly to the student's bill. Commuter students are eligible to add on any other meal plan they'd like.

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.
