Meal Plans

Dining FAQ'S

AM I REQUIRED TO HAVE A MEAL PLAN?

Any student living on campus is required to have a meal plan for each semester.  This include the Honors Academic Village, but NOT McComas Village (Greek housing).  While it is not mandated that commuters or students living off-campus have a meal plan, it is greatly encouraged for its convenience and value.

WHAT ARE MY MEAL PLAN OPTIONS?

Students living off campus or commuting may choose any one of the 6 meal plan options. For students living on campus, the available plans are determined by the class level:

  • Freshman (0-29.9 credit hours) – 7 Day All Access, 5 Day All Access
  • Sophomore (30-59.9 credit hours) – 7 Day All Access, 5 Day All Access, Block 200
  • Junior (60-89.9 credit hours) and Senior (90+ credit hours) – 7 Day All Access, 5 Day All Access, Block 200, Block 150, Block 75

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

Meal Plans can be purchased through the MyUT Portal (http://myut.utoledo.edu/).  Along the left-hand side under My Accounts, is the link “Change or Add a Meal Plan.”  Simply make your selection and hit submit.  NOTE:  If any on-campus student does not select a plan for each semester, they will remain on the 7 Day All Access plan.

CAN I CHANGE MY MEAL PLAN?

Meal plan changes can be made, free of charge, up until the Wednesday before the first day of classes for each semester.  After that date, a $50 adjustment fee will be assessed for any changes made.  To make a change, log into the MyUT portal and select “Change or Add Meal Plan” under My Accounts.

No additional changes may be made after the Sunday of the Add/Drop period.  Any applicable refunds for meal plan changes will be prorated from the date the meal plan became active. 

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MEAL SWIPE AND A MEAL EXCHANGE?  WHERE CAN I USE MY MEAL EXCHANGE?

A Meal Swipe is used whenever you enter one of the dining halls.  1 swipe = 1 meal, but remember, once you walk in, it’s all-you-care-to-eat! 

A Meal Exchange is used in place of a swipe for select menu items at our local retail brands (Croutonz, Agave, Java City, Freshens) or convenience stores (Bottle Rocket & Rocket Market); for a guest meal or to-go box in either dining hall, or a carry out meal from Skyrise Express at Parks Tower.

WILL MY MEAL PLAN AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR THE NEXT SEMESTER?

For on-campus students, meal plans purchased for the fall semester will automatically renew at the same level for the spring semester provided there are no changes made to your on-campus housing. If you change residential halls or even rooms, the system will assign you to the default plan for your class status unless you make a change to your plan through the MyUT portal prior to the first day of classes.  Meal plans do not automatically review after the spring semester for the following fall. 

Commuters and off-campus students who purchase meal plans will need to re-enroll for their chosen meal plan prior to each new semester.

WILL UNUSED MEAL SWIPES OR DINING DOLLARS ROLL OVER TO THE NEXT SEMESTER?

For Block meal plans, unused meal swipes as well as unused dining dollars will roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester on the first business day after the add/drop period.  For All Access plans, only unused dining dollars roll over from fall to spring.  All swipes and dining dollars for all plans expire on the last day of the spring semester at 11:59 p.m. 

HOW CAN I EAT HEALTHY WHILE ON CAMPUS?

At all dining halls, nutrition information is posted for each menu item to assist in making the right choice for you.  Color coded cards are also present to help easily identify those selections that are vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or halal.

FOOD ALLERGY OR DIETARY RESTRICTION?

Campus dining works hard to accommodate students who have food restrictions due to medical reasons.  Contact us at 419.530.5846 and we’ll be happy to meet with you to discuss dining options that fit your needs.
