Blair-Shannon Dining Center

Garst Dining Center

Kentwood Dining Center

Meal plans

Currently, we offer students the option to select a 10-, 14-, 19- or unlimited meal plan. The unlimited-meal plan provides complete access to all dining center services anytime the dining centers are open. The 10-, 14- and 19-meal plans allow 10, 14 or 19 visits to the dining centers weekly. The week begins at breakfast on Monday and ends with the Sunday dinner meal.

Students may eat in the dining center of their choice by simply presenting their BearPass Card.

After hours dining

After hours dining is an exciting element of on-campus living. Offered from 9-11 p.m. Sundays-Thursdays, this fourth dining option is very popular with residents, as it provides a good study break and an opportunity for students to collaborate on group projects!
