Plan Options

  • The 19 Meal Plan - Allows 19 meals each week for the entire semester. No matter what happens throughout the year, we make sure you never go hungry.
  • The 14 Meal Plan - Is perfect for the light eater or if you're frequently away from campus on weekends. Choose any 14 meals per week.
  • The 10 Meal Plan - Offers 10 meals per week. Ideal for off campus residents!
  • The Seven Meal Plan - Offers seven meals per week and is specially designed for upper class students and commuter students.
  • The Flex 160 Meal Plan - The Flex 160 Meal Plan, is Sodexo's Newest and most Versatile Meal Plan to Date. Here is how it works.  You get 160 Units for the Semester, to use when and where you want. Each Unit is worth a Meal in Cosgrove or you can stop by the Sodexo Food Services Office in Cosgrove to exchange Units for Buzz Bucks at a rate of $5.00 each. Here is an example: After looking at your schedule you realize you can only eat 6 Meals a week (leaving 64 that you can't make), so you can exchange them for $5.00 each giving you $320.00 in Buzz Bucks. The Flex 160 Meal Plan is not available to entering first year students.


Buzz Bucks are actually on your student ID. Each semester with a meal plan you will have $100 cash added on. This can be used in the Food Court for purchases of food or miscellaneous items OR if you are bringing a friend here for the weekend you may use your card to purchase a meal in Cosgrove. Even without a meal plan you have the option to start an account using your student ID, this will help you not to have to carry cash to school with you daily to pay for your meals. Once your money runs out you have the option to add more money by using cash, check, or credit card at the Cosgrove Cafe Campus Dining office. Any questions regarding your card, please call ex 6360.
