Whether you live on or off campus, a Meal Plan is by far the most economical and most convenient way to eat on campus. For your convenience all Meal Plans will be billed to your university bill. Meals can be used for all-you-care-to-eat meals in The Fresh Food Company or at many of our other dining locations to purchase predetermined 'Value Meals'. Your selected meals per week will be placed on your student ID card each* Monday morning. Students will have through the following Sunday night to use those meals. Residential Meal Plan members may use up to 4 meals throughout the day.
Once you've found the meal plan with the right number of meals, you can now customize the Meal Plan Dollars to fit your needs! When signing up for your meal plan, you can add up to $200 additional Meal Plan Dollars via TopNet to help with all the 'extras' you may want. These Meal Plan Dollars can be used in all on campus dining locations including Einsten Bros. Bagels, Panda Express and Starbucks! Any additional Meal Plan Dollars added via TopNet will be added to your university bill. By using Meal Plan Dollars, you will save 11% every time you make a purchase in any retail dining locations including the on campus convenience stores. Plus, if you happen to have Meal Plan Dollars left at the end of the fall semester, they will rollover to the spring semester, giving you more time to use them!
Freshmen coming into WKU who are required to live on campus are also required to have one of the meal plans listed below for an entire academic year. Meal Plan Members will automatically be re-enrolled for the same plan chosen in the Fall semester for the Spring semester. This requirement is not influenced by changes in class standing that may occur during the student’s first year at WKU. Some exemptions may be granted for verifiable medical conditions that can not be fulfilled by any of the memberships. Appeals for exemption from this University requirement may be made in an email.

Residential Meal Plans:
The number in front of a Meal Plan option denotes the number of meals per week the meal member is entitled to. Students may use up to 4 meals a day at any time. *Meal plans are not valid during the following University breaks: Fall Break, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break.
Customize your Meal Plan Dollars:
Meal Plan Dollars come with Meal Plans to supplement your options and offer you even more flexibility! Use Meal Plan Dollars in all campus dining locations and at the on campus convenience stores. Meal Plan Dollars work just like Dining Dollars, but since they are only packaged with a Meal Plan, they are offered at a bargain price. By using Meal Plan Dollars, you will save 11% on every applicable retail purchase, and when using them in the Fresh Food Company, you will receive $1 off the meal price.
This is a debit account accessed by the student ID. The Dining Dollars account is often used to supplement a full meal plan. The dollars deposited in this account may only be used for items purchased in all dining operations. You have the added security of not having to carry cash for meals and snacks. Additionally, it is a better value than cash because you will save 11% on every applicable retail purchase, just like Meal Plan Dollars. Some exclusions may apply.
Meal Membership Cancelation Policy:
Students may upgrade their meal plan at any time. Students can downgrade or cancel their meal plan by 9/8/2015 of the Fall semester and 2/8/2016 Spring semester. If the Meal Plan is cancelled, any additional Meal Plan Dollars added will also be cancelled. Meal plans may not be downgraded or cancelled after 9/8/2015 of the Fall semester and 2/8/2016 Spring semester in accordance with the university policy. Refunds will not be given for a meal plan after 9/8/2015 of the Fall semester and 2/8/2016 Spring semester.
