Resident Meal Plan

We have received your request.

Please check your email for a confirmation message.

When you live on campus, you don't have to worry about getting groceries. Your unlimited meal plan lets you eat at a number of locations across campus.

Ways Residents Pay for Meals

Swipe your OneCard at dining locations on campus to get access to different ways to pay.

Huskie Unlimited Access Plan

You automatically get this plan when you live on campus in New Hall, Neptune, Gilbert, Grant, and Stevenson.

Eat as often as you'd like at any All You Care to Eat location on campus.

Living in Northern View? You're eligible for the off-campus meal plans.

Flex Dollars Included

You get 10 Flex Dollars to start with each semester and you can buy more at any time. Use them at other locations on campus like the East Side Cafe or The College Grind.

Your 10 free Flex Dollars expire at the end of each semester.

Huskie Bucks

Huskie Bucks are really flexible: use them at many on-campus dining locations. Plus they're the only way to pay for laundry or printing.

During room selection you'll have a one-time chance to sign up for $200 Huskie Bucks billed to your NIU Bursar account. Otherwise, you can add Huskie Bucks anytime through other payment methods.

Add $200 Huskie Bucks

Getting More Flex Dollars

Each resident living in New Hall, Neptune, Gilbert, Grant, and Stevenson gets 10 Flex Dollars at the start of the semester, but if you need more, you can add a Flex Level plan at any time. Unlike the 10 Flex Dollars you get that expire at the end of each semester, these refill amounts expire at the end of the academic year.

Deadlines to Change a Plan

  1. If you added your meal plan before the semester started, you have ten business days from the start of the semester to upgrade, downgrade or cancel your meal plan. After those ten business days, you can still upgrade or refill, but you can't cancel or downgrade your plan.
  2. If you added your meal plan on or after the first day of the semester, you have ten business days from the date you added your plan to upgrade, downgrade or cancel it. After those ten days have passed, you may still upgrade or refill, but you can't cancel or downgrade your plan.
