Dining Plans aren't just for residents. At Longwood University, dining locations are social environments where students can sit, relax, socialize, study and become part of campus life. We have many plans for commuters to choose from to make sure they are part of that experience.

Commuter plans are sold on a semester-by-semester basis.  You will need to sign up for a meal plan each semester that you wish to be on a meal plan.  Please visit the Longwood Dining website, and follow the "Commuter" link, to sign-up or change your meal plan. 

Want to add, change or drop your plan?

Commuter Students wishing to purchase a meal plan for the 2018-2019 academic year may through the Add/Change Commuter Meal Plan button below. Students wishing to drop or downgrade his/her meal plan must do so prior to 5 p.m. on Monday, August 27, 2018 (Fall) or Wednesday, January 23, 2019 (Spring).  Plans can be added or upgraded at any time throughout the semester, however,  they are not prorated.

Any plan changes after the first day of classes will be assessed a prorated daily rate for meals and bonus dollars.
