Housing & Residence Life: Meal Plans

Meal Plans

When signing up, select a meal plan based on your academic schedule, eating patterns and social life. Keep in mind that there can be up to four meal time periods per day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night.

All of our meal plans can be used at our all-you-care-to-eat dining facility in the Nazareth Student Center as well as all of our retail dining facilities through the meal exchange. Please remember however, that only a maximum of five (5) meal exchanges may be used at the Learning Commons Café or the Atrium per week.

Traditional Meals Per Week Plans

Traditional Meals Per Week Plans allow you to enjoy up to a specified number of guaranteed meals each week during the semester you select it. Meals do not carry over from week to week; they reset at the end of each week. Traditional plans do not allow the holder to swipe more than one meal per meal time period.

Block Meal Plans

Block Meal Plans offer you more flexibility as the number of meals that you sign up for can be used throughout the semester and they carry over from week to week.

    Meal Plan Points

    Meal Plan Points are accepted like cash in all our dining locations. Meal Plan Points work on the same principle as a debit card. You can use your Meal Plan Points to purchase beverages, snacks or even a full meal at any of our dining facilities. Each time you make a purchase, the purchase amount is subtracted from your Meal Plan Points balance. Meal Plan Points do not carry over from semester to semester, as they are part of your semester meal plan. However Pacer Points can be purchased and added to your account at any time and they carry over until they have been exhausted. Please note that the Pacer Points would be in addition to any Meal Plan Points that accompany your meal plan.

    *Students who do not actively select a meal plan and are required to have one will be assigned a 19 Meals Per Week plan.  It can be changed during the first two weeks of the semester.

    Changing Meal Plans

    Residential students have the first two weeks after the start of classes of the Fall and Spring semesters to change their assigned meal plan.  Resident students must send an email from their Marywood email address to reslife@marywood.edu with their name, student ID #, current meal plan, and desired meal plan in order to change their meal plan.  The student will be notified via email once the desired change has been made.
