Meal Plans

The Bagel Bar at Stuart. Screamin’ Eagle at Lower. Mozz sticks at Late Night. Choosing what to eat will be tough. Choosing the right meal plan can be a snap. All first-year students and those who live in residence halls without kitchens must purchase a Residential Meal Plan. While that plan meets many students' needs, BC Dining also offers a Maroon Upgrade and a Gold Upgrade that add more spending power and flexibility to individual meal plans.

The Residential Meal Plan meets most students’ dining needs. At $2,665 per semester (approximately $25 per day), its funds can be spent at any of the nine qualifying on-campus dining locations. Most students on the meal plan eat two-plus meals a day, along with an occasional snack. Meal plan funds can be spent at any time during the same academic year in which they are purchased.  

The Residential Meal Plan also includes $175 per semester in Dining Bucks, which provide added flexibility and variety. These funds can be used at specialty dining locations, through GET mobile ordering, and at concessions and vending machines around campus.
