Returning or transfer students living in a residence hall or campus house are required to select one of the following six meal plan options for the fall 2020 semester. Returning students residing in campus townhouses/apartments and fraternity/sorority housing, as well as commuter and off-campus students, have the opportunity to select any of the meal plan options but are not required to do so.
