Meal Plans - Policies & Procedures

Students are responsible to manage their own meal plan assignments and adhere to the deadlines.

Students who fail to confirm their meal plans, and if eligible, make any changes, will be charged for the meal plan applied to their account even if they did not use the meal plan.

For students needing medical accommodations to the meal plan, please complete the Meal Plan Accommodation Request form and submit it (along with the required documentation) to University Housing.

Need to know the balance on your card?  Anyone at the Bruin's Den, Bruin Bites, Bridge Cafe or Canyon Commons can have a card reader give you an accounting of your balance.
