Independence Dining Program

Designed to build community through food and remove all worries from students about how and when they can eat. The Independence Dining Plan gives students unlimited access to the 3 dining halls. This means there are no meal swipes to keep track of! Each plan comes with up to $500.00 Bonus Funds to use at one of the other 25 retail dining locations.

Students who will be living and eating on campus during Early Move-in, Thanksgiving break, and/or Spring Break should upgrade their Independence Plan to the “Enhanced” level for continued swipe access to the Globe. The plan can also be upgraded to the “Ultimate” level which provides dining access during all semester breaks previously mentioned, and includes swipe access at the Globe during Winter Break.”

This meal plan is required for Freshmen and Sophomores living on campus without a full kitchen in their room.
