Purchase A Plan

Saluki Anytime Plan
Students living in an on-campus apartment or off-campus may purchase the Saluki Anytime Plan by completing the Meals Contract.

Block-20 Plan
The Block-20 Plan is available for purchase each year, beginning in early August for the current academic year, on the Housing Portal by clicking here.

Saluki Anytime Plan

This plan is included with the traditional residence halls contract and provides unlimited meals in either dining hall. Students may eat as much or as little as they want and can come and go as often as they want during posted hours of operation.

Student ID Cards
A valid student ID is required to enter the dining hall. Students who lose their ID card should report the loss at once online through their SalukiNet account or in person at either dining hall or at the Student Center ID Card Office. To eat without their card, students should see the monitor at the dining hall entrance. Cards must be replaced within 24 hours to avoid revoked privileges. Students are responsible for any misuse of their card until its loss has been reported. Students may only use their own ID card.

Guest Meal Passes
This plan also includes six guest meal passes for the academic year. To use a pass, students should notify the monitor at the entrance to the dining hall that they wish to use a guest meal pass and present their Student ID Card to the monitor. Unused guest meal passes are forfeited at the end of the academic year.

Junior/Senior Opt Out
Junior and senior students living in University Hall may "opt out" of the dining plan when they complete their University Housing contract. Students who choose to "opt out" should email the Central Housing Office by clicking here.

Plan Availability to Students Not in Residence Halls
Students living in an on-campus apartment or off-campus may purchase the Saluki Anytime Plan by completing the Meals Contract online. Students with a residence halls contract already have this dining plan included with the cost of their contract and do NOT need to buy it separately.

Block-20 Plan

The Block-20 Plan is a great fit for students living in on-campus apartments, off-campus, or in designated junior/senior housing. This plan is also available to faculty and staff. The Block-20 Plan provides 20 meals in University Housing dining halls.

More than one Block-20 Plan may be purchased at a time, or additional blocks may be purchased throughout the semester. Block-20 Plan funds roll over until the last meal is served for the Spring semester, at which time any remaining funds in the account are forfeited. There are no refunds for cancellations. Dining plans purchased by individuals living off-campus will include tax.

The Block-20 Plan is available for purchase, beginning in early August for the current academic year, on the Housing Portal by clicking here.
