Frequently Asked Questions
How does the plan work?
The 2021-2022 Winter Meal Plan offers Residents the opportunity to visit DDC and purchase up to 13 meals per week, each week, Monday – Friday, for the designated period.
There are 15 meal periods (opportunities) each week for one or more meals to be purchased, with the exception of the week in which there is a Holiday. One to three meals can be purchased during any meal zone up to a total of 13 meals each week.
In addition, this plan includes a set amount of Flex Meal Points for the plan period which may be used in addition to and/or in lieu of using a meal.
If I do not use a meal, will it carry over to the next week?
Unused meals do not carry over to the next week. At the beginning of each week your meal balances are reset. We encourage Summer Residents to plan their schedule accordingly so they may maximize their use of their meal plan.
If I do not use my Flex Meal Points by the end of the period will they carry over or may I get a refund?
Flex Meal Points do not carry over at the end of the plan period and refunds are not available. This plan offers the opportunity for full meal plan utilization. We encourage Summer Residents to plan accordingly so they may maximize meal plan value.
Where and when can I use my Flex Meal Points?
Flex Meal Points can be used in DDC during service hours and/or in vending machines on campus. Flex Meal Points are a convenient way to purchase additional food and beverages for a late night snack or for Holidays and weekends when DDC is not open for service.
