Dining Services: Meal Plan

Residence Hall Meal Plan
With the introduction of the LeRoy Neiman Center, SAIC has expanded its food service offerings on campus. Dining options include vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free choices.
SAIC is excited to offer all resident students a meal plan. This meal plan helps foster community by providing another opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to gather together. You can meet your roommate, have a cup of coffee with a faculty member, or gather as a floor community while sharing a meal.
The SAIC meal plan for residence hall students is $1,000 per semester and will be added to students' ARTICard. The meal plan is a declining-balance program, where students select their food and their Dining Dollars account will be debited. Dining Dollars are accepted only at SAIC dining facilities in the LeRoy Neiman Center, MacLean Center, and Columbus Drive buildings. The meal plan is billed with housing charges and is required of all residents. Unused Dining Dollars will roll over into spring semester, but any remaining at the end of the academic year will be forfeited. For this academic year, students who have a remaining meal plan balance at the end of the spring semester will receive that amount credited to their tuition and fees account. If students do not have a balance on their account, they will receive a refund of the money. We will also be revisiting the meal plan amounts for the 2013–14 academic year.
On average, the meal plan will provide approximately 10 meals per week. The declining-balance program gives students the ability to choose a full meal or grab a quick bite between classes and meetings. In addition, our residence halls are equipped with kitchens in each room where residents can prepare some of their meals.
