General Meal Plan Information
People gather where there's food. It's human nature. So it's no surprise that our dining locations are often the center of campus activities. But we are more than social. We are convenient, flexible, healthy and sustainable. Nothing beats a meal plan for quality and value!
We want to ensure every student has the opportunity to enjoy a tasty and nutritious meal. We understand and accommodate the varying needs of our students on campus. Our recipes focus on "right-size" portions and socially responsible food selections. Our vegan and vegetarian dining, allergen-friendly options, Halal offerings and low-calorie menus are sure to meet every dietary need.
Required Meal Plan Policy
All first-year (less than two regular session semesters) students living on-campus under the age of 21 are required to participate in one of the on-campus meal plans. All other full-time (12 hours or more) undergraduate students living on-campus or off-campus are automatically enrolled in the $75 Meal Plan Dollar Flex (MPD Flex) plan and may upgrade to another plan to satisfy their dining needs. On-campus students may upgrade to any of the available on-campus plans and off-campus students may upgrade to any on-campus or off-campus plan.
Meal Plan Members will automatically be re-enrolled for the same plan chosen in the Fall semester for the Spring semester. This requirement is not influenced by changes in class standing that may occur during the student's first year at WKU. If a housing exemption form has been approved and is on file with the university, you will not be required to purchase a Meal Plan. Some exemptions may be granted for verifiable medical conditions that cannot be fulfilled by any of the memberships. Appeals for exemption from this University requirement should be made in an email to the Resident District Manager.
