What type of Meal Plan is recommended?

We have a variety of meal plans to meet your needs! Depending on your class year, where you live, and how much you are on campus, our recommendations may vary.

How can I purchase a Meal Plan?

You can purchase your meal plan by visiting the Residential Life office on campus.

Are Meal Plans required?

All new entering students who have earned less than 18 semester credits and reside in the residence halls are required to maintain a meal plan during their first academic year. While a meal plan purchase is not required for upperclassmen and commuters, many students take advantage of the convenience and value a meal plan has to offer.

What are Beaver Bucks?

Beaver Bucks are accepted as payment at all on campus dining locations. They are loaded right on your Student ID card, so there is no need to carry around cash or another card! There is no minimum balance, over draft fees, or hassles!

How do I get Beaver Bucks?

Beaver Bucks can be purchased by clicking here, or by visiting us on campus at the Dining Services office in Walnut Hall.

What if I want to change my Meal Plan?

Before the semester begins and during the first two weeks of the semester, a student may change their meal plan by completing the meal plan change form or by providing a written request. Students canceling or changing plans are assessed a prorated weekly charge for the used portion of their meal plan. After the first two weeks, no meal plan changes can be made. For questions, give us a call at 218-444-7576.

How do I get into the dining locations once I have purchased my Meal Plan?

Within 24 hours, your Student ID card will be activated with your meal plan. Present your card to the cashier in the dining hall, and you are all set!

Can I carry meals over to the next semester?

No, all meals expire at the end of the semester.

Can I treat a friend to a meal?

To keep discounts as high as possible, meals are reserved for the meal plan holder only. However, you can always treat a friend using Beaver Bucks.

What do I do when my Beaver Bucks are running low?

You can reload your Beaver Bucks at any time! Beaver Bucks can be purchased by clicking here, or by visiting us on campus at the Dining Services office in Walnut Hall.
