Aramark Campus Services is pleased to introduce to you a food service
which provides variety, flexibility, security, and convenience to
our students. There are 3 meal plans for residence students (prices
included in overall residence fees).
Meal plans, using the student ID card work on the debit
system. The meal plan payment is set up in an account just for the
student. Every time he/ she eats at one of the cafeterias, the card
is scanned at the cash register and the food purchase will be deducted
from his/her account.
The ScanPlus* system offers great flexibility in managing
a student's meal plan. Initially, residence students will be given
a monthly maximum spending limit. Weekly account statements can be
sent upon request to keep students informed of their balance. This
budgeting plan will ensure that students have enough money in their
meal plan to last the entire academic year.
If You Lose Your Student ID
If your ID is lost, students MUST report the loss to the Food Services
Office in George Martin Hall. The lost ID will be deactivated and
the student will be given a temporary meal card until s/he gets a
new student ID. The temporary card is only valid for five days.
Dining Room Rules and Conduct
1. Trays, dishes or cutlery are not to be removed from the Dining
Room. The loss of china and cutlery increases your costs, inconvenience,

House in the next academic year. The committees typically consist
of a president, two vice-presidents, a treasurer, secretary, sports,
food and social representatives. They work together with the Residence
Life Staff to promote house spirit, organize house activities, and
also represent residents to the larger University community. Each
wing/floor of the residence also elects or appoints a delegate to
represent the wing on the committee. The committees are elected to
serve you. Please let them know how they are doing and offer suggestions
for new or different activities and services they could offer.
The house fee that you pay on arrival ($40.00) goes directly to the
House Committee to support their endeavors. Fund raisers are also
held throughout the year to support the many house events. Such events
are only as successful as the support received from the residents.
So get out and support your house and residence community! Presidents
