Meal Plans

Choices, Choices, Choices!

To help you select the ‘right’ meal plan, first consider your daily routine…will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities and social event commitments interfere with dining? Secondly, consider your own eating habits...are you an all-day snacker, or do you prefer three meals a day? Finally, might you miss dinner due to employment obligations or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to select a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle.

Important Info

Gael Flex
Gael Flex Dollars can be purchased by anyone who wishes to add value to their ID card and to enjoy delicious meals while dining with their peers. These funds offer the most flexibility and a great value, as they can be used in the Oliver Dining Hall or in Café’s Louie or De La Salle. These can also be used at designated off campus locations.

How do they work? Your Flex Dollars account works like a debit card. The account allows you to draw upon predeposited funds to purchase food throughout campus. Having a Flex Dollars account is a great way to have the money you’ll need without carrying cash. And as an additional value, these funds are tax exempt, so you’ll continue to save. Note: these funds carry over from fall to spring semester, but expire on the last day of the academic calendar and are forfeited if remain unused.
