Overview of UD Dining Meal Plans

Types of Meal Plans

"Weekly" plans - Weekly plans provide students with a more structured meal plan option because the Weekly plans reset with the selected number of Meals every Sunday for the duration of the semester. This provides peace of mind that whether it is week 2 of the semester, or week 14, the student will have Meals available to begin each week.

Students do need to pay attention to their usage of Meals throughout the week. We encourage every student to be aware of their Weekly meal balance and use them accordingly prior to the Meals resetting for the start of the next week on Sunday morning.

"Block" plans - Block plans are designed to provide students with added flexibility by offering a larger number of Meals that can be used over the course of the entire semester.

This allows students the ability to use any number of Meals one week to the next. The Block plans place a certain level of responsibility on the student's behalf to properly budget their balance of Meals throughout the semester. The flexibility the Block plan offers could lead to a student using their full balance of Meals before the end of the semester, or having a number of Meals remaining at the end of the semester. Either way, keeping track of the Meal balance is especially important if a student decides to select a Block plan.

"Anytime" plans - Anytime plans function exactly the same as the Block plans, which are explained above. The greatest, and only difference between these two meal plan options is the ability to use multiple Meals during a single meal period.

For example, a Block plan allows a student to use one Meal during a breakfast, or lunch, or dinner. The Anytime plans allow a student to use multiple Meals for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Because the Anytime plan is an Optional meal plan, and designed as an option to supplement on campus dining, the ability to use multiple Meals is allowed.

"All-Point" plans - All-Point plans are large balances of Points programmed onto a student's ID card. The three (3) All-Point plans were created with specific weekly balances in mind.

The $750 All-Point plan is ideal for students who expect to average approximately $50 per week - or $10 per day - in on-campus dining purchases.

The $450 All-Point plan is ideal for students who expect to average approximately $30 per week - or $6 per day - in on-campus dining purchases.

The $300 All-Point plan is ideal for students who expect to average approximately $15 per week - or $3 per day - in on-campus dining purchases.

The $150 All-Point plan is ideal for students who expect to average approximately $10 per week - or $2 per day - in on-campus dining purchases.

Types of Meal Plan Funds

"Meals" - Meals are only used to access the four (4), all-you-care-to-eat residential dining locations on campus - all of which are conveniently located near the residence hall complexes. Meals cannot be redeemed in our food court, snack bars or convenience locations

"Points" - Points are a declining balance account, which simply means they function just like a debit card. Every time a students uses Points, it is a dollar-for-dollar, penny-for-penny transaction until the Points balance reaches zero.

Points can be used in ANY on-campus dining location, but they are typically used for purchases in our food courts, convenience and coffee locations.

Points will rollover from the Fall semester to the Spring semester, but unused Points remaining at the end of the Spring semester do not rollover to the following academic year.

Points can be added throughout the year as needed through the Dining Choose or Change Application at, a cash deposit at one of four Value Transfer Stations on campus (located in the Trabant University Center, Perkins Student Center, Christiana Commons, and Morris Library Lower Level); or a deposit at Cashiers or the outside drop slot at the Student Services Building (minimum $25 deposit).  You may call (302) 831-4033 or email for details.

"Guest Meals" - Guest Meals can be used for visiting friends or relatives to gain access to the all-you-care-to-eat residential dining locations. A student can also use Guest Meals for themselves if they want. Guest Meals do not rollover to the following semester, so we encourage every student to be aware of their Guest Meal balance and use them accordingly.
