General Notes Covering the Meal Plan

  • Once you have selected a meal plan, or have been assigned a meal plan, you are responsible for the entire cost of the meal plan even if you do not use the plan. Your University ID must be presented at each meal.
  • Shoes and shirts must be worn in all dining areas.
  • When dining at the resident Dining Hall, all food must be consumed within the dining hall. Food should not be removed from the dining hall in any type of container, including bags, plastic containers, and boxes unless you have chosen the “To Go” food option and received the appropriate container from the front desk. Additionally, the removal of trays, utensils, plates, etc. is considered theft and will be handled accordingly, as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Meals do not carry over to another semester. University Meal Plan privileges are non-transferable and unauthorized use subjects both parties to disciplinary action.

Meal Plan

Monmouth University requires all resident students who live in University housing to participate in a resident student meal plan. The only students who are exempt from this requirement are students who reside in the Garden Apartments, Great Lawn Apartments, Maplewood, and University Bluffs.
