Seattle University believes living and interacting with others outside of the classroom enhances the education of the whole person. On-campus dining offers a great opportunity to serve this purpose. On-campus dining fosters a more vibrant, tight-knit community. It provides opportunities for students to develop close and supportive relationships, meet new people, and interact with faculty and staff in a non-classroom setting. In addition, on-campus dining promotes healthy and informed dietary habits. Seattle University requires all students who are a part of the on-campus residency requirement to participate in the meal plan program.
All freshmen and sophomores are required to sign-up for at least Meal Plan 4.Juniors and seniors living in on-campus apartments and students living off-campus may opt for any level of meal plan and do not have a required minimum.
The SU Campus Card has many uses, from access to Residence Halls to grocery shopping on campus. If you are new to using the SU Campus Card, we recommend you take a look at Campus Card 101. If you find your card has excess money towards the end of a quarter, explore the spending options from OIT Campus Card. If you find you are running low on funds you may add money to your card through our eAccounts Portal (login credentials are identical one's SeattleU email credentials).
There are four different money plans on each card:
Dining Dollars - the set meal plan that you have paid for through Housing and Residence Life.
Meal Plan Deposit - for users to add additional funds they might need to purchase food and drinks at Bon Appetit Locations on campus.
Rollover MP - for Dining Dollar rollover funds from previous quarters.
One Card - miscellaneous account associated with Campus Card.
The meal plan you select for fall quarter will be automatically renewed each quarter unless it is changed by the student. Visit the myHousing Portal to modify your meal plan.
The university offers a wide variety of dining venues, menus, hours of operation, and meal plans. Further, Bon Appétit offers nutritional information and guidance, vegan and vegetarian selections, local and organic options, as well as, special assistance with medically prescribed diets.
Meal plan changes may be made during the first ten business days of every quarter with the online Meal Plan Change Request form through the myHousing Portal. Meal Plan Changes are any change of a meal plan within the policy outlined above (see below for meal plan changes outside of the policy).
Meal Plan Exemptions are any changes to a meal plan outside of the policy outlined above. The university recognizes four circumstances when participating in a meal plan as outline in the policy above may not be advisable:
