On the Lite Side

We realize that today's students care about what they eat and are more informed on nutrition than ever before. That's why we provide nutritional information so that students can make healthy choices. We accommodate different kinds of diets such as low fat and vegetarian, as well as special dietary needs. We make eating healthy easy with choices that not only taste good, but are good for you too!

A la Carte

One of the many highlights of the University Union is the wide array of retail dining outlets. Start your day off with a delicious coffee, cappuccino, or latte and a pastry from Jazzman's Café. In the Central Courte you'll find all your favorites ranging from fast food to international cuisine at Pizza Hut®, Taco Bell®, Burger King®, Sub-Connection®, and Southern Tsunami®. Or enjoy a great chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A® and if you don't have time to go to the store visit the Smart Market™ to pick up that last minute item, both located in the Union Bowling Center. For a fresh baked bagels and Darn Good Coffee® visit the brand new Einstein Bros. Bagels® located in the James C. Kirkpatrick Library.

Faculty and Staff Dining Options

These are meals to be used in our resident dining facilities, Ellis or Westside Market. These facilities are set up in an all you care to eat format from breakfast through dinner and even some late night meals too!

Select the number of meals that fits with your schedule. These meals are good for the entire semester. You can share them with a friend and don't worry, you can add more at any time in ten meal increments.

Standard Plans
Faculty and Staff have the option of choosing one of the following meal plans:

Plan 1: The Access Plan

The Access Plan offers unlimited access to dining in our three resident dining halls, Ellis and Westside Market. We're open from breakfast through dinner and have late night service too. Come in for a meal, a snack, or just to enjoy a cup of coffee or a soda. This is our most economical plan, perfect for a healthy snacker or someone with a hearty appetite. Big appetite - small appetite - somewhere in between - this is a great value for you. Add even more flexibility by depositing a few dollars in a dining service spending account.

Plan 2: The 180 Meals / $65

This plan offers flexibility, convenience, and value. Participants receive a guaranteed 180 meals for the semester (an average of 12 meals per week), in Ellis or Westside Market and $65 in a dining service spending account for snacks in our "A la Carte" locations.

Plan 3: The 140 Meals / $150

This meal gives you a guaranteed 140 meals for the semester in Ellis or Westside Market (an average of 8 meals per week). Use the dining service spending account for missed meals or snacks in the "A la Carte" areas. Ideal for those with weekend activities.

Plan 4: $25 dining dollars = $25

Plan 5: Block of 30 meals = $205

Optional additional meals and dining dollars
Additional dining service spending dollars: Increments of $25 only.
Additional meals: Increments of 10 meals at $70 per increment.

Dining Service Spending Account

You can open a Dining Service Spending Account for as little as $25. After that you can add as you need in $25 increments.

Dining dollars are your most flexible dining option. Dining Dollars are good in all dining locations on campus. You pay a set price at the door in the resident dining facilities. In the University Union at Pizza Hut®, Taco Bell®, Burger King®, Sub-Connection®, Southern Tsunami®, Jazzman's Café®, or Chick-fil-A®, and Einstein Bros Bagels® located in the James C. Kirkpatrick Library the total for each purchase is simply deducted from your balance. You can also use your Dining Dollars for delivery purchases from participating local restaurants.

The best part is you save over 7.5% on every purchase with Dining Dollars. That's right, every Dining Dollar transaction saves you money! Not only do you save money with each Dining Dollar purchase you have the convenience of not having to carry cash on campus and you don't have to loose your parking spot.
