Residence Hall Meal Plan Information
All undergraduate students under age 22 that reside in the residence halls are required to participate in the Declining Balance Meal Plan. Students that receive residence hall-rate tuition assistance from Andrews University must be on a meal plan regardless of age. The cost of the residence hall meal plan is $1,700 per semester, which will provide about two meals per day for most students.

Meal plan participants may use their ID cards for purchasing meals at the Dining Center, Gazebo and vending machines in the residence halls and other locations on campus.

Students who have a balance in their meal plan account at the end of the semester may receive a refund of up to $150. If a student’s meal plan balance runs low during the semester, funds may be added to the meal plan by request at the Office of Dining Services. For those students that withdraw from school during the academic term, the declining balance meal plan refund is pro-rated per day.

Café Accounts(Community and Graduate Students)
Community students or residence hall students over age 22 may open a Café account at Registration Central or by coming to the Office of Dining Services. Individuals who choose to open a Café account may take advantage of a cash bonus; if the initial balance purchased is greater than $400, there will be a 5% non-refundable bonus added to the account. In addition, the Café account plan comes with a loyalty program that rewards the user with a free meal after the purchase of 10 meals. Pick up your loyalty card at the Dining Services office after you open your account.

Transfer of Fund Balances
Students who need to transfer funds between the bookstore, ITS store and Café account need to come to the Office of Dining Services. Changes are posted to the student’s statement at the end of each week.
