  • Meals can be shared with other students only if they dine with you (Multiple meal deductions are allowed on the Community Dining Plan).
  • Unused meals do not roll over to the following semester (though Fall meals will roll over into Interim)
  • Fall community dining plans will end on January 29, 2017.
