Resident Meal Plans & Costs

Resident students living in all university sponsored halls are required to have a meal plan. Medaille and St. Joseph residents can choose from 3 Traditional Plans (19, 14 or 10 meals per week), or 3 Block Plans (170 meals, 145 meals, or 115 meals per semester). Residents in Southwest apartments can choose from the above plans or choose the minimum Apartment 7 Meals per Week Plan. If you do not specify a meal plan, the 14 meal plan is automatically assigned to Medaille and St. Joseph’s Hall residents. For Southwest residents, if a meal plan is not specified the 7 meal per week will be assigned.

Meal plans may be changed in the first week after move-in only. All change requests must be in writing. No changes are accepted by phone.
