Planning Your Purchases
Choose what you want to eat, when you want to eat it! Oxy's á la carte pricing system will affect each student differently. All Meal Plan purchases earn 50% discounts at the Marketplace, Tiger Cooler, Coffee Cart, Berkus Hall Dinners and Green Bean!
PLAN A: For Hearty or Frequent Diners: You will have $1,665 to spend. Given a 16-week semester, your expenditures should average about $104 per week, or about $14.86 per day. If you eat frequently (21 times per week), your average expenditure per meal should be $4.95. You will probably spend less for breakfast, and more for lunch and dinner. If you miss a meal, a day or a weekend, the dollars you would have spent on those meals may be used for snacks, guest meals or heartier meals anytime in the semester. Very few students eat every meal, every day on campus.
PLAN B: For Moderate Diners: You will have $1,520 to spend. Given a 16-week semester, your expenditures should average about $95 per week, or about $13.57 per day. Your dining pattern might include three moderate meals per day, or hearty meals during the week with weekends off.
PLAN C: The Basics: You will have $1,250 to spend. Given a 16-week semester, your expenditures should average about $78 per week, or about $11.16 per day. Are you budget savvy? Usually dine at Homestyle? Not a 4th meal person? This may be your plan!
PLAN D: Meal Plan Lite: you will have $1,020 to spend in the dining facilities. During a 16-week semester, you should spend an average of about $64 per week, or about $9.11 per day. If you are a light diner, or often away from Campus, this plan may be right for you. This plan is not available to first year students.
Each meal plan has a base cost of $1,405, which is included in the price of each plan. The base cost covers labor & benefits, supplies, utilities, equipment replacement, maintenance & repairs, technology, administrative support, debt service, insurance and other costs required to support the dining program. After a small allocation to vending, the remainder of the plan goes into the student's **starting balance, to be used for 50% discounted food purchases in the dining facilities.
Meal Plans A and B have limited rollover capability. If you choose plan A or B the balance difference between your plan and Plan C, if unspent, will be credited into a rollover account for continuing usage. The maximum rollover is $300 for Plan B and $445 for Plan A. There are no rollovers, refunds or credits from Plan C or Plan D, or from the first $1,300 in the balance of Plans A or B. Rollover Accounts will terminate at graduation, or upon leave of absence or withdrawal. No refunds or credits will be issued.
