Students dining together is an important part of the college experience by encouraging opportunities for social interactions and learning with others around the meal table.
All residence hall residing, incoming freshmen who are not 19 years old before September 1 of the current academic year are able to select from the following unlimited access meal plans. Many students elect an unlimited meal plan after their first year. Purchase your meal plan online though the Online Bulldog Service Center.
Crimson, Gold, and Platinum meal plans allow students unlimited access to the all-you-care to eat dining courts, seven days a week, throughout the semester.
The 14 Traditional meal plan provides 14 meal swipes each week throughout the semester. Use them all in one day or ration them out, for example, using two meals a day seven days a week. Meals are reset each Sunday just after midnight. There is no meal x-change with the 14 Traditional plan.
Meal swipes can be used at the Quad Café and Grill Pit. Meals are reset each Sunday at 3AM.

**Note: Dining Dollars are non-refundable and expire at the end of the academic year in the spring. Express Meals and Bulldog Bucks are non-refundable unless a student is graduating or withdrawing from Ferris, or an employee is ending employment with Ferris. An Express Meal account that is inactive for 365 days will result in unused meals expiring. Bulldog Bucks do not expire. However, a Bulldog Bucks account that is inactive for 365 days will be subject to a $2/month maintenance fee. If a person’s Bulldog Bucks balance is less than $2, the maintenance fee will match the balance. No one will not be assessed a fee greater than their balance.
