Meal Periods/Schedule


Our team is committed to serving students throughout the year. The number of Dining Courts/Halls that open during holidays and closing/opening periods is based on past records and anticipated demand as determined by the Culinary Services team.

 

Meal Periods

 

Culinary Services offers 34 meal periods. This gives students a total of 34 opportunities during the meal week to use their Meal Plan. Of the meal periods listed below, only one meal may be used during each meal period except for those on the Flex 14 and Flex 20 meal plans. There are a total of 5 meal periods each day, Monday through Saturday, and 4 meal periods on Sunday.
 

Below is the list of meal periods. Each dining facility has its own operational hours and may not be open for the duration of each meal period. Please go to Locations and Operating Hours for meal times.

 

Only one meal may be used during any of these time periods if holding the regular 10, 14 and 20 meal plans. Flex 14 and Flex 20 meal plans may use more than one meal during any meal period.

 

  • PERIOD 1: Breakfast: Monday - Friday: 7:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., Saturday: 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
  • PERIOD 2: Lunch: Sunday - Saturday: 10:30 a.m.  – 1:30 p.m.

The meal periods were increased to offer more options and flexibility in students’ class, work and social calendars.

 

Depending on the number of meal plan days available during the first and the last week of each semester, meal plans may be pro-rated if the meal plan week is less than 7 days; a standard meal plan week is Sunday through Saturday. The number of meals that a student is given will be reduced according to the number days in a shortened Meal Plan week.

 

Culinary Services will not be held responsible for unreturned emails pertaining to changing a Meal Plan. Please use my Housing to change your meal plan.
