Meal Plan Change Deadline 9/2

Students, you have until 5pm on Friday, September 2nd to make changes to your meal plan. The easiest way to do that is to submit a new contract online... or you can fill out a paper contract in person at any dining room, the UC Card Office, or the Dining Services Office. Email us if you have questions!


Meal Plan Options - Fall 2016 / Spring 2017

Dining Services offers a meal plan to fit any student's needs. Students living on campus choose their meal plan when they sign up for housing... it's so easy!

Live off campus? We can recommend a Bear Plan just for you. Dining Dollars are great to have no matter where you live! Leave the shopping, cooking, and cleaning to us!

"We Feed The Bears!"

Navigating through life can be a little challenging at times... making time for healthy, tasty, and nutritious meals shouldn't have to be!

Dining Room Options

Students who choose to carry a meal plan have the convenience of enjoying meals at any of our dining rooms on campus... including the UC Food Court and Bears Bistro.

Our dining rooms offer a large variety of foods, including fresh fruits and veggies, vegetarian and vegan options, allergen-free options... and Holmes Dining Hall & Tobey-Kendel Dining Room are both "all you care to eat" locations that have a gourmet salad bar available every day. There are to-go options available as well if you don't have time to sit down and eat with us.

Hungry and don't know which dining room to try? We have LOTS of choices. Dining room menus are posted online every Friday, so take a look at what's being served this week. You're not required to eat at any one location, so why don't you try them all!? Check out the Dining Room hours of operation here.

Registered Dietitian Available

Do you have any specific dietary issues that you need us to know about? We can usually accommodate most requests, but we recommend you speak with our Registered Dietitian about it first... he will be able to tell you what we can offer. You can contact Matthew Doyle, RDN, at (970) 351-1961 or matthew.doyle@unco.edu.
