Eating on campus is an important part of campus life. Whether it is a quick bite on the way to class or a casual lunch with friends, a meal plan makes life so easy! With options like food trucks at the University Center or Pizza Hut at the UC Satellite - eating on campus has never been so convenient!

You also get a 10% discount when you use your Cougar Cash at either one of the dining halls: Fresh Food Company at Moody Towers or the RFoC at Cougar Woods!

More value is just a swipe away. Affordable. Effortless. Reliable.

Whether you're eating on campus every day or just a few times a week, you could be saving money with a meal plan. See the chart below to see how much you save compared to our door rates in the residential restaurants.
