We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

  • Do I need to buy a meal plan?
    All students living on-campus(except Bearkat Village) are required to purchase a Residential meal plan, regardless of classification.  For students living off campus or at Bearkat Village, while a meal plan purchase is not required, many students take advantage of the convenience and value a meal plan has to offer and have the option of a Residential or Commuter meal plan.

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    All Fall meal plans auto renew for the Spring semester. If you are not required to have a meal plan you may call Residence Life at 936-294-1812 to remove your meal plan.

  • Will unused meal plans or DB roll over to a future semester or year? 
    Unused meal plan swipes do not roll over. Bearkat Bucks roll over from Fall to Spring to Summer. At the end of Summer Session II all unused Bearkat Bucks are reset to $0.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    You may change your meal plan up to the 12th day after classes begin for the semester by calling Residence Life at 936-294-1812.
Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
