Northwest offers meal plans for students both on and off campus. All on campus students must have a meal contract. All of the current meal plans give you the freedom to eat at any of the dining facilities on campus.
Go to Campus Dish for complete information on meal plan options offered to students.
One change of meal plan is permitted at no cost ($25.00 charge for additional changes). Changes will be permitted upon request until the third day of classes for the Fall Trimester and from Dec. 1 until the end of the third day of classes for the Spring Trimester. Students may petition to change their meal plans after the deadline until Sept. 15 for Fall Trimester and Feb. 15 for Spring Trimester at a charge of $25.00 for each change (changes in the meal plan will not be permitted after the dates listed above).
Campus Dining Services caters to all University divisions and offers a wide variety of menu items to the University community. Campus dining areas are located in the J.W. Jones Student Union and The Station (Conference Center). All areas accept any Campus Dining meal plan or cash.

The ID Office, located on the second floor of the Student Union, ext. 1430, processes Bearcat Cards necessary for access to food service. See the Bearcat Card Brochure for policies. Carry the card with you at all times.
Declining balance dollars give you the flexibility that traditional meal plans cannot offer. However, with this flexibility comes responsibility. It is your responsibility to budget your meal plan. Still, we are here to help. Your DB dollars will be put into your account in four equal installments throughout the trimester. In addition, current balance information can be obtained from any Campus Dining cashier or in the ID Office. Use your account balance to measure how well you are budgeting by comparing it to the flyers posted in all Campus Dining locations. These flyers contain information on the approximate balance you should have on your card at different points throughout the trimester.
Guests/visitors may eat in any of the dining areas by paying cash. Additionally, students on the
Aladine and inclining plans can charge guests' meals to their accounts. However, the student must be present for these charges to occur.
Campus Dining is also proud of its continuing partnership with the local Pizza Hut. Your meal plan dollars can be used to order food for delivery from these establishments.
Students requiring special diets should contact the dietician (562-1252) to make arrangements. It has been found that most special needs can be met after appropriate consultation. Weight loss programs and commercial diets (i.e., Weight Watchers) are not reasons to cancel a meal plan. Please consult with the dietician about weight loss programs.
