Meal Plan FAQs
How does my Residential meal plan work?
My Meals are designed for personalized meal planning and the ultimate flexibility. Create the BEST plan for you by choosing both your meals per week and BoomerMeals. As incoming resident students, you choose your meal plan when you sign your housing agreement.
My Meal plans have a specific number of meals per week, each time you dine, a meal will be deducted from your total meal balance. These plans are good for one week and re-set every Sunday night. The meals per week come in increments on 10, 14, and 19.
BearPasses are not transferable, misused BearPasses will be confiscated.
What happens to the meals that are not used at the end of the week?
A student on a fixed meal plan (10, 14, or 19) has the opportunity to use that number of meals each week. The unused meals do not accumulate and do not figure into a refund.
What are the benefits of signing up for a meal plan?
There are lots of reasons why you should sign up for a meal plan:
