    Meal Plans

    UW-L offers a variety of Dining Plan options for members of the University community.
    The meal plans provide exceptional value for both residential and off campus members of the University community. Not only does the meal plan program provide you with a wide variety of fresh meals to choose from all day long, but they offer the convenience of no clean up or shopping for food.

    Residential Meal Plans

    All students living in the Residence Halls are required to participate in the Dining Plan. This is a requirement of the Board of Regents, and is an integral part of the student's college experience.  Students can choose from the Basic 19 or Basic 14 plans.  Failure to sign up will result in automatic enrollment in the Basic 19 dining plan.  Students living in Reuter Hall may sign up for the Reuter Block Plan instead of one of the meals-per-week plans.

    • Students registered for a dining plan must present their University ID prior to entering the serving areas. 
    • Meals may also be purchased on a cash basis at the dining locations. 
    • ID's are not transferable, misused ID's will be confiscated.
    • Meal plan week starts on Sunday with breakfast and runs through Saturday dinner. 
    • Every Sunday morning the meals reset for the next week.
    • Unused meals do not transfer over from week to week.
    • Any Campus Cash included with your meal plan that is remaining at the end of the fall semester will transfer to spring semester, but is not carried over to the next academic year and needs to be spent on the last day of the meal plan. The campus cash is non-refundable.
    • The residential meal plans will need to be used at Whitney or the Cellar. Block meals are allowed at all dining locations.
