All-Access Residential Meal Plan

  • Residential students are required to have this plan, which gives you unlimited entry to the Dining Commons whenever it is open. 
  • Never worry about how many meals you've used or how many you have left. You can grab lunch with classmates, meet your study group for evening ice cream, or have coffee with a professor. Bring your laptop and surf the net. Stay as long as you like!
  • Includes $300 in flex dollars that supplement your meal plan for the semester. Flex dollars work like a debit card. Each time you make a purchase, the total is subtracted from your balance. Flex dollars do not roll over to a new semester. They can be used in the dining hall or:
    • Subway
    • Starbucks
    • Papa Johns
    • Grille Works
    • P.O.D. Market
  • If you run out of flex dollars, you can add Knight Bucks to your account in increments of $50 from this web page: marian.campusdish.com. Knight Bucks rollover each semester as long as you are a registered, enrolled student. Watch for special Knight Bucks promotions throughout the year to save money!
  • You will get five (5) guess passes per semester or a total of ten (10) passes per year to use when friends or family visit campus.

Other Meal Plans

  • For the 2018-2019 academic year, house and apartment residents are required to have a commuter meal plan. Students may select any commuter meal plan on their housing application and the meal plan will be added to their account. 
  • Graduate students can add declining balance dollars or a commuter meal plan to their accounts. Click here for more details.
