Two Extra Meals

Two Extra Meals is a University program intended to encourage juniors and seniors to stay connected to their residential colleges. Administered by Campus Dining, the program credits two extra meals per week to all juniors and seniors for use in a residential dining hall regardless of whether or not they have purchased a meal plan.

Two Extra Meals cannot be used for seders at the Center for Jewish Life or for Lunch to Go.

The program begins Monday, September 6, 2021. Students with block meal plans can expect to see the two extra meals (30 meals per semester) reflected in their meal plan balance within the first two weeks of each semester.

The week begins with Sunday brunch and ends with Saturday dinner.
