All Access Meal Plan

All Access Meal Plan – Unlimited access to the dining room plus $300 in Flex Dollars plus 5 guest passes per semester.

The All Access meal plan provides unlimited entries to the Barbara B. Cooling Dining Room so there’s no need to count how many meals you’ve used or how many you have left. Plus, there’s no extra cost to hang out with your friends over ice cream! All Access provides you with a VIP pass to our dining room – any time it’s open. It’s more than breakfast, lunch, or dinner – you’ll make new friends over lunch or meet your study group in the evening for ice cream. If you’d prefer, you can always bring your laptop and surf the net.

Flex Dollars may be used in Barbara B. Cooling Dining Room, Subway, Starbucks, Papa Johns, Grille Works, or the P.O.D. Market. Flex dollars supplement your meal plan and can be used at all of the service locations listed above. They work like a debit card; each time you make a purchase, the total is subtracted. The total amount of Flex Dollars included with the meal plan is for the entire semester.

Students will receive 10 guest passes per year (5 per semester) to use when friends or family visit campus. This plan has increased flexibility and ease of use at all dining locations. If you run out of Flex Dollars you can add more Knight Bucks in increments of $50.00 via the Dining Services website at www.marian.campusdish.com. Knight Bucks will roll over semester to semester as long as you are a student at Marian University. Watch for Knight Bucks promotions throughout the year and save money!

Commuter Students

All new freshman and transfer students will be assessed a $200 Commuter meal plan. This $200 is all flex dollars and can be used at any dining location on campus. Flex dollars do not roll over semester to semester.

Graduate students as well as students living in campus houses and apartments are not required to have a residential meal plan. It is strongly encouraged that these students add Declining Balance dollars or a commuter meal plan to their room and board choices for the convenience of joining friends for lunch or grabbing a cup of coffee with a professor. More details on declining balance and commuter meal plans can be found at Campus Dining.

Please Note

All new first-year students will be placed in double occupancy rooms with roommates in Doyle Hall or Clare Hall, which houses our first year experience and living-learning communities. First year honors students will be housed together. Students who sign up for the Alverna Faith or Peace and Justice living-learning communities will also be housed together.

A minimal number of single rooms are available for new and returning students. Singles are assigned on a first come, first serve basis.  Medical singles may be requested on the housing application. Please send medical documentation to the:

Office of Housing and Residence Life
Marian University
3200 Cold Spring Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46222

The additional cost for a single room is $400 per semester.  In the event of extra space on campus, double rooms may be sold to students as singles (doubles as singles) for an additional cost of $625 per semester.
