Residence Life: Meal Plan Options
UP meal plans are a "declining balance" concept. There are no limitations on when or where students can use their dining points and there are no regulations prohibiting the use of the dining points to purchase meals for other students or guests. Students will be able to "grab and go" with their purchases and are not limited to eating their meals in the location where it was purchased. Students will have control of their meal plan account and will be able to purchase their meals as they see fit.
Of course, having control of the spending in the meal plan account comes with a level of responsibility in student spending behavior. Every purchase will come with a receipt showing an account balance.
BENEFITS OF OUR MEAL PLAN
Community - Breaking bread is an important part of university community life. On-campus dining lets you be a part of the larger college experience.
Food NOT out of a box or can - Bon Appétit cooks from scratch with recipes prepared by the onsite Executive Chef. All regular salad dressings, bread, soups and stocks for sauces are made from scratch everyday by the onsite culinary team.
Food with a conscience - Our chicken and milk are antibiotic-free and fruits and vegetables are local and organic (when in season).
Vegetarian and vegan options - A wide range of vegetarian and vegan choices are offered at our cafés.
Peace of mind - No worrying about packing food for lunch. Also, our meal plan dollars can't be lost, even if your student ID card is lost.
MEAL PLAN INFORMATION 2013-2014
Realizing that one size does not fit all, University of Portland offers several dining options to fit your lifestyle, appetite, and budget.
All meal plans operate on a declining balance or debit system. Depending on the meal plan selected, students begin each semester with a set amount of funds which are electronically added to their meal plan balance. Food purchases are drawn on student's balances as items are purchased in all University Bon Appétit locations throughout campus.
Plenty of food choices, campus locations, eat-in or take-out – it's all here for you!
