Campus dining

Are undergraduate students required to purchase a meal plan?

If you are an undergraduate student residing in a university residence hall (not a student living in university apartments), then you are required to choose a 200 block or greater meal plan.

What meal plans are available?

VCU Dining Services provides block dining options ranging from 5 to 300 meals all with Dining Dollars. Block plans allow a specific number of meals per semester; Dining Dollars allows you to purchase tax-free meals at any VCU dining facility. Commuter students and students living off campus have the option of purchasing dining plans as well.
