Meal Plans

Plans come in many convenient shapes and sizes.  A magnetic strip on the back of your student ID card works with our computer system to identify you as a dining plan member.  By combining a “Meal Allowance” with “Dining Dollars," you can customize a plan that’s right for you. Meals can be used at our all-you-can eat Fresh Food Company in Schott Dining Hall. You can add extra Plus Points (dollars) to your plan at any time, which can be used at all campus dining locations. Plus Points, Dining Dollars, Cash and Credit (Visa/Mastercard) are accepted at all JCU Dining locations on campus.

A Meal Plan makes it easy to connect, refuel, and save time. We have locations open from 7:00am – 1:00am. They allow you to grab a hot breakfast before going to class, catch up on emails while enjoying a latte at The Cubby, or munch on a late-night snack at The Inn Between. To sign up for a meal plan, please go online and work through the Banner Web System.   Click under Registration and Academic Services, then Residence Life, and My Housing and Meal Plans.
