Undergraduate Dining

Students who live on campus are required to have a meal plan. That way, you’ll have easy access to delicious American and international food. Plus, you don’t have to wash dishes!

There is one cost for the dining plan, but you can choose from two different plan options below.

Choose entrees from around the globe, from Japanese to Mongolian food.
Certified Halal food is available in Passport dining hall.
Vegetarian options are available in all dining halls.

Option A: The Standard Plan

21 meals per week

This plan provides students breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week, with set meal plan hours and spending allowances.* In addition, $150 bonus debit dollars are included in this plan.

The plan resets every day and any unused meals are forfeited. The bonus debit dollars included in this plan can be used to cover meals exceeding the allowance or to purchase an item when you do not want to use an entire meal. The bonus debit dollars expire at the end of each semester and are not eligible for rollover to the next semester.

FALL 2019 $2,815 USD
SPRING 2020 $2,815 USD
SUMMER 2020 $2,815 USD

Note: Prices are subject to change.

Option B: The Flexible Plan

Pay as you go

Complete flexibility in student dining: There are no meal periods tied to a clock or spending allowances associated with this plan. This plan allows students the flexibility to eat whenever, as many times a day as they want, and all purchases are deducted from a dining card.

Depending on the semesters, the remaining debit funds may be rolled over.* This plan works well for late night study sessions or if students like to eat smaller multiple meals during the day. A majority of UDayton students choose this option.

FALL 2019 $2,815 USD
SPRING 2020 $2,815 USD
SUMMER 2020 $2,815 USD
