Dining Services Information
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
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”
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.

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.
