Cost of all meal plans includes required tax. “Meals” can only be used in the Dining Hall, which offers a buffet-style food court. Declining Balance dollars can be used at several campus locations.

Residents have until the 12th day of class to change their meal plan at the beginning of each semester.

Residents must purchase a new meal plan each semester. Unused Meals and Declining Balance dollars do not carry over to the next semester. If unused, they are forfeited. Residents may add Meals or Declining Balance dollars to their Meal Plans at any time.

Residents with serious food allergies may receive an exemption from the meal plan requirement upon proper documentation. However, you must select a meal plan before a request for exemption will be considered. Exemption forms are available at the Cashier’s Window in the Wimberly Student Services Building.
