Meal Plans

All undergraduate students living on campus, except those living in University Forest or Gateway Village Apartments, are required to participate in a meal plan based on their housing assignment. Campus meal plans are designed to provide for a student’s basic meal needs throughout the academic weeks of each semester. “Dining Dollars” are offered as part of the meal plans to provide flexibility for a limited amount of retail purchases, access to food over academic breaks during each semester, or purchases at other Dining Services locations other than the Heilman Center.

Students will use all traditional meal swipes at the Heilman Dining Center only. Dining Dollars are accepted at all other Dining Services locations.

A student's identification card serves as a meal card, debit card, and student ID, and is non-transferrable. If lost or stolen, report it immediately to One Card Services.

For questions regarding meal plans, contact the One Card office at 804-289-8010, 804-289-8478 or by email at
