Frequently Asked Questions


I live in a Residence Hall and am sick. How do I get my meal?

If you live in one of the Residence Halls and you have an Unlimited Meal Plan and you are not able to come to the Dining Hall to eat a meal you need to tell your RA.  Your RA can then come to the Dining Hall and let the ID Checker know that they have a sick student.  A sick tray will be made for you and your RA can bring it to your room. 


I live in a Residence Hall and have meetings and/or calsses during the entire meal period on a certain day. How can I get my meal?

Most Unlimited Meal Plans come with Dining Dollars.  You can use these funds to purchase a meal to go at one of the other Dining Centers.  You can also request a sack lunch through the Dining Hall manager.  These requests must be made in advance so we can have your meal ready for you.
