About meal plans

New, incoming resident students are required to select purchase a meal plan.
  • 2017-2018 costs per semester for unlimited meals, 19 meals, 14 meals and 10 meals per week plans:

    • Unlimited meal plan  with $150 Flex dollars:     $3,370 per semester

    • Flex dollar amounts are subject to change

How the meal plans work

  • Students receive a set number of meals per week. Each time you eat in the Lawrence Hall Dining Room, one meal is subtracted from your weekly meal allowance. Each meal is all-you-care-to-eat dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Lawrence Hall Dining Room.
  • Use a meal exchange in the Point Café during breakfast, dinner or late night (cannot be used for lunch).
  • Flex dollars work like a bank debit card: each time you make a food purchase, the total is subtracted from the balance in your account.
    - Flex dollars supplement weekly meal allowance and can be used in all of our food service locations:
              Lawrence Hall Dining Room
              Point Café
              Starbucks
              Premieres at the Pittsburgh Playhouse
