There are 19 meals offered each week in the Armington Center Dining Commons. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered Monday through Friday; brunch and dinner on the weekend. In addition to breakfast and brunch a continental breakfast is also served. If you come to both breakfast or brunch and continental breakfast, you will be charged for two separate meals.
Within our program, we have five different meal plans designed to accommodate the needs of our students. Everyone is automatically enrolled in the 12 Meals A Week, $135 Flex Dollars Plan. If you would like to change to a different plan, stop by the Dining Services Office at Armington Center and sign up for the plan that fits your needs. Students may change their plans during the first week of each semester.
Flex Dollars are discretionary declining balance dollars that are part of your meal plan. They can be used in the Armington Center to purchase a meal, at the Student Union Snack Bar for a snack, or at Jo's Java for a cup of coffee. Flex Dollars are like a bank account with electronic access. Every time you use your meal card, you reduce your balance by the appropriate amount. The Flex Dollars will carry over from fall semester and interterm into spring semester. However, at the end of spring semester, unused Flex Dollars expire.
Weekly Plans Advantages and Disadvantages
Plan 1: 19 Meals A Week, no Flex Dollars
Plan 2: 14 Meals A Week with $65 Flex Dollars per semester
Plan 3: 12 Meals A Week with $135 Flex Dollars per semester
Plan 4: 7 Meals A Week with $235 Flex Dollars per semester
Weekly Plans are designed on a missed meal factor basis. We know many students do not use all of their meals. The Weekly Plans give you the flexibility to use Flex Dollars when you miss a meal period.
19 Meals A Week Plan
This plan contains NO Flex Dollars, but gives you the option to eat each time the dining facility is open.
14 Meals A Week Plan
This plan was created to the student's request. This meal plan allows students to enjoy some breakfast meals with other lunch and dinner meals. With this plan, students can enjoy $65 flex dollars for their snacks.
12 Meals A Week Plan with $135 Flex Dollars
This is our most popular plan. Many students tend to miss breakfast which is equal to five (5) meals a week. With this plan, students can use the Flex Dollars to obtain a quick snack at the Student Union Snack Bar.
7 Meals A Week Plan with $235 Flex Dollars
This plan is most efficient for students on the go. Student athletes and other active students may miss several meals due to schedule constraints and travel. This plan allows students to eat when their schedule permits.
Advantages of the Weekly Plans: You will have meals available every week and you can use your Flex Dollars to purchase additional meals for yourself or a guest.
Disadvantages of the Weekly Plans: The meals per week may only be used for YOU and not for your guest; Flex Dollars must be budgeted correctly.
Block Plan Advantages and Disadvantages
Plan 4: 145 Meal Block Plan with $135 Flex Dollars per semester
Plan 5: 125 Meal Block Plan with $175 Flex Dollars per semester
The Block Plans are designed for 100% usage of meals and Flex Dollars. You can use your available meals for yourself and authorized guests. (You must accompany your guest and present your ID for your guest to be authorized to use your account.)
145 Meal Block Plan with $135 Flex Dollars
This plan gives you approximately 9 meals a week.
125 Meal Block Plan with $175 Flex Dollars
This plan gives you approximately 8 meals a week.
Advantage of the Block Plans: These are the most flexible plans we offer. Block Plan meals can be used for you or your guest.
Disadvantage of the Block Plans: Block Plans require discipline to budget meals and Flex Dollars properly during the semester. Lack of budgeting can cause you to run out of meals or Flex Dollars before the end of the semester.
