Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

 

 

 

How do residence meal plans work?

Once you choose a meal plan on the application portal, we preload that information onto your residence account, so once you arrive in residence, you can immediately use your student ID to access meals at the Fresh Food Company. This is why it is important for you to get your UM student card as soon as possible. If you don’t have your card on the day you arrive, a temporary meal card can be provided at the check-in desk or from the cashier at the Fresh Food Company.

 

The Fresh Food Company offers an all-you-care-to eat concept. This means that for each visit (card swipe) you are entitled to choose menu items from multiple stations and eat as much as you like. The number of meals in your chosen meal plan (10, 15 or unlimited) dictates how many times per week you can access the Fresh Food Company. In the case of the 10 or 15 meals per week plan, those visits are counted starting on a Sunday and ending on a Sunday. Keep in mind that each visit - regardless of whether you just have a snack or an entire meal - counts as one meal. Meal swipes can only be used by the meal plan holder.
