How does this plan work?

The Graduate Student Residential Meal Plan is only available for Graduate students living in the Residence Halls. This plan consists of a guaranteed number of meals per week (5), for each week of the semester. Graduate Residents may use their plan for any five meals at the Donovan Dining Center.
