Meal Plans

Meals are served in the Shaw Student Center and are priced à la carte. Daily menus and pricing can be found on the Bon Appétit website. The Gold Meal Plan averages about 2 meals per day.

The leftover balance on meal plans carries over from fall to spring semester and from spring semester through the end of May Term (first 4 weeks of summer term) (if enrolled). Meal plans will not carry over to the next academic year.

Employee and Commuter Student Flex Plans

Employees and commuter students can take advantage of the commuter flex plans to load money on their college ID card to buy meals, snacks, or drinks on campus. As a bonus, with the purchase of a commuter flex plan, Bon Appétit will contribute an additional 5–10% of what you added to your balance, increasing your available funds. You can load money to your card with a cashier in Shaw Student Center or Griff’s Roost Café, or by visiting the Bon Appétit Office in the Shaw Center. Faculty and staff can sign up for payroll deduction by emailing Commuter students cannot pay for commuter flex plans with financial aid; costs are paid directly to Bon Appetit via cash, check, or credit card. Plan options include:

  • Sky: Adding up to $199 (5% Bon Appétit bonus)

Commuter flex plans carryover until used up or you leave the college. There are no refunds at anytime.
