A meal plan is required for all students living on the main campus, as well as those students living in Lancer Park, Longwood Village and the Longwood Landings. Meal plans are optional for commuter students.
We know that most of your day will be spent on campus and we want you to find the best plan that suits your needs.
Meal plans are offered to students to help enhance your college experience. Participating in a meal plan makes it easy and convenient to sit, relax, study and socialize with your friends in one of our Dining locations.
Join us and enjoy the social aspects of dining on campus!
