Unlimited Dining

For Tommies living on campus, Dining Services offers the Unlimited Meal Plan, as well as block plans.

Students can enjoy meals from each plan at our residential dining venues, The View, Northsider and Cornerstone Kitchen. Our dining halls have multiple stations that offer a healthy array of menu items daily. Plus, each plan comes with dining dollars that can be used to purchase food in any campus dining venue, including retail locations like T's, Scooter's, coffee shops and convenience stores.

Most meal plans also include guest meals, which can be used by friends, family, or the meal plan holders themselves at any time throughout the semester.

All resident students (except those living in Morrison, Flynn, CDC, Transfer Houses, or Grand apartments) are required to purchase a meal plan. If no meal plan is selected, sophomore, junior and senior students are automatically placed on the Block 150 plan. All first-year resident students are on the Unlimited Meal Plan.

The unlimited plan is as great as it sounds — unlimited trips to residential dining locations on campus morning, noon and night.

This plan is the closest option to having your own kitchen and pantry and it offers the flexibility that a college student's lifestyle demands. Stop by for an essential cup of coffee before your first class, then return afterward for a hearty breakfast. Grab a snack during a study break between regular meals and get what you need during each trip. With this plan, we promise you'll have all the nutrients and energy needed to thrive.

Our residential dining venues — The View and The Northsider — offer continuous service from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., so you can stop by for a meal or snack whenever your schedule allows. In Minneapolis, meal plan swipes can be used to eat breakfast or lunch at Cornerstone Kitchen from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Please note, the unlimited meal plan offers unlimited trips to residential dining venues and all the food you care to eat during each trip. It does not include taking unlimited food and beverages to go.
