Meal Plan F&Q

  • Do I need to buy a meal plan?
    Bradley University has a two year residential requirement. All students that live on campus in the residential halls within those two years are required to purchase a meal plan. For those students defined as commuter (living off campus) we do have meal plan options to meet their needs also.

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    Meal plans will automatically renew from semester to semester.

  • Will unused meals or Dining Dollars roll over? 
    All meals (with the exception of the Off-Campus 50 Block/25 Block Plan) expire at the end of the semester. Unused Declining Balance (Dining Dollars) will roll over to Quick Cash at the end of the semester, up to $100. All additional unused Declining Balance over $100 will expire.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    If your meal plan does not meet your needs, you can make a meal plan change beginning move in weekend through the first full week of classes each semester.  Visit your myBU to make changes or check your account.

Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
