Dining Services Information

Meal Plans

Dining services are provided by Aramark, which provides regular meal service through the Haggar Cafe, the Rathskeller, and special catered events. All hall residents are required to participate in a residential meal plan.  All freshmen and sophomores are automatically placed on the “All Access Plus” Meal Plan. Continuing juniors and seniors living in a residence hall will automatically be placed on the standard “All Access” Meal plan.   All hall residents may upgrade to the “All-Access Plus” or “All-Access Premium”. Freshman and sophomores are not eligible to downgrade.  Contact the Office of Student Affairs or Dining Services for more information.  

At the beginning of each semester, students who have paid their board bill will have access to Dining Services via the student’s University identification card. The identification card must be presented at each meal. Failure to present the identification card will result in the student being denied entrance to Haggar Café or the Rathskeller. Only the student to whom the card is issued may use the card. Attempted use by another person may result in disciplinary action and a fine.

Students on a residential meal plan have a declining balance that may be used in the Rathskeller. Any amount left in declining balance at the end of the fall semester will be added to the spring declining balance as long as the student is still enrolled in a residential meal plan for the spring semester. Otherwise, any declining balance left at the end of the fall is forfeited.  No exceptions are allowed. Any amount remaining at the end of the spring semester will be forfeited.  

For students whose class schedule or campus job conflicts with meal service hours, ARAMARK offers a meal equivalency option. ARAMARK will also prepare a “sick tray” when requested.  

Meals are not served during the Thanksgiving recess, Christmas break, Easter recess or Spring Break.  Students found responsible for taking food from the Café or Rathskeller without using their meal plan, declining balance, or without any form of payment will be subjected to an automatic “Theft of Services” fine of $100. 

 

Dining Services and Cafeteria Policies

The following dining service policies are in effect:

  1. Food, dining trays, china, glassware and silverware are not to be removed from the Café. Food and/or beverages may only be removed from the cafeteria when a “to go meal” has been purchased.  The “to-go meal” policy may be obtained from the office of Dining Services.
  2. Dining trays, china, glassware and silverware should be returned to the dish room after meals.
  3. The throwing of food, china, glassware, silverware or paper products is prohibited.
  4. Meal cards are not transferable under any circumstances.
  5. Students not participating in a meal option must pay in advance and have a receipt available during their meal. Any students found with cafeteria food without a meal purchase of any type will be charged $100 for “Theft of Services.”
  6. Anyone found aiding others in “Theft of Services” will also be charged a $100 fine.  

Violation of these dining service policies may result in disciplinary action, which includes the possible restriction or denial of student meal privileges.

Health and Special Dietary Concerns

If students have any special health or dietary concerns they contact the Director of Dining Services. The Director of Dining Services will schedule a meeting with the student to discuss the needs of the student. They will provide advice or make specific arrangements to see that reasonable requirements of the diet are met. Dining Services offers consultations with their Registered Dietitian to also discuss and support any student’s health or dietary concerns.  If the dietary needs are due to a disability, the student should visit the ADA coordinator.
