Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed to meet your unique needs. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

On campus residents are required to purchase a meal plan each semester.  Some plans are restricted to upper classmen and Rocker Square residents.  Please see the meal plan options for more details.

Our meal plans have two parts to them.  Meals are used in the Hardrocker Café as access to the all-you-care-to-eat service on campus and vary per plan (Gold Rush is unlimited access to the Hardrocker Café, Hardrocker 160 has 160 meals, Hardrocker 125 has 125 meals, etc.).  The Meal Plan Flex is a pre-loaded fund on your student ID card that you can use at all locations operated by dining which include Miner’s Shack (on-campus convenience store with a Grille and Restaurant Rotation station), Einstein Bros Bagels, Hardrocker Café (if you choose to not use a meal access) and concessions.  Each plan has a different amount of Meal Plan Flex to balance the number of meals on the respective plan. 

There is a limited window at the beginning of each semester where you can change your meal plan once.  This is done in the Cashier’s Office.


We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.
