All freshman students living on campus and sophomore students who live in non-apartment style units are required to purchase a meal plan as a part of their Housing Contract.

Commuter students are not required to purchase a meal plan but are encouraged to review the many plans available to see if one best fits your needs.

Yes! You can change your meal plan if it does not fit your needs. Meal plans can be changed only during the first three days of classes, subject to proration and only if the dining dollar balance can be transferred to the new plan.

No. Your meal plan is intended for your use only. If you give your ID Card to someone else to use, it will be confiscated by the cashier and given to the General Manager. You will then need to make arrangements with the General Manager to revalidate your card. Reoccurrence will result in the cancellation of meal plan privileges with no refund.

Absolutely! Any time your parents are on campus visiting, just bring them into any dining center with you, and as long as you are on a meal plan, their meal is on us. Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch?

Dining dollars are cash values included in all meal plans and can also be purchased separately at any time. They work like a pre-paid debit card and your student ID card must be used for these transactions. Dining dollars may be used at both on-campus dining locations.

Yes! Dining dollars do carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester if you purchase a spring meal plan! However, you lose them if don’t use them before the last day of the spring semester, which is marked by graduation.

Yes! You can purchase any one of our meal plans. Another option is to add Dining dollars to your account to use at either of our dining locations on campus. You may purchase meal plans by visiting here.

No problem! We offer a vegetarian option every day at both dining locations and we have an icon program in place to make navigating our menus easier to identify vegetarian, gluten free, and healthy choices.

We offer many items that are gluten free and they will be highlighted with signage in both Mitchell’s and T-Rex Grill. The General Manager is always available to discuss a personalized program to make sure your dining experience is delicious, nutritious and safe. Visit in person or send an email to the General Manager or call (719) 486-4275 to get started. We would love to meet you and discuss your options.

No. You get a set number of meals per week. If you do not use them, you lose them. But you start with a new set of meals the next week. The purpose of the Traditional Meal plans is to ensure that you always have meals at your disposal. We understand that people sometimes miss meals. Your meal plan is priced with the understanding that you will miss some meals, therefore, missed meals are not carried over from week to week nor are you given credit or refunds for unused meals.
