How it works

The 5-day meal plan is valid from August 27, 2023 to April 27, 2024. Your meal plan expires at the end of the academic year.

Any unspent flex dollars at the end of the academic year can be carried over into the next academic year and spent at participating food retailers on campus.

Payment installments

Charges for your meal plan will be posted to your MyServiceHub account in four equal installments throughout the year on June 29, 2023; October 18, 2023; January 19, 2024; and February 29, 2024.

All flex dollars are loaded in August. A $35 administration fee and a $40 sustainability and health and safety initiatives fee is included in your first installment payment.
