Meal Plans
Dining Services works in conjunction with Residence Life and the Campus Card Office to provide access to meal plans for students living in on-campus residence halls.  When a student signs a housing contract, he/she indicates a particular meal plan. Students may choose the plan that best fits their needs, per the University Housing requirements. The meal allowance gives a student the opportunity to enjoy all-you-care-to-eat dining all day in the specified dining locations.

Dining Dollars
All-Access Meal Plans offer Dining Dollars, which provide students with the ability to purchase from any Loyola University Chicago dining location including Center Stage, Connections Cafe, SouthSide Market, Damen Food Court, and Engrained and Water Tower Campus locations including Nina's Cafe,and Lu's Old Fashioned Deli and Pub. Students have the opportunity within the first week of each academic semester to edit their meal plan selection. Students may make changes to their meal plans within the timeframe specified by the Campus Card Office. Please visit
for more information and complete instructions.
