Meal Plan Selection & Prices

Stetson University Dining Services knows the hectic life of a college student. It can be difficult to squeeze in a proper meal between classes and activities, but we're here to help. Our dining locations are near the residence halls and classrooms with hours that are convenient for our students. We understand that each student has different needs and eating habits. We have implemented a food nutrition analysis program, are offering more low-fat, vegetarian and vegan meals, created more flexibility with meal plans, and continue to maintain the highest level of quality food and customer service.

About Our Meal Plans

Stetson University Dining Services has several different meal plan options to best fit our students dining habits. When choosing a plan, it is important to remember factors like  class schedule and eating habits (especially frequency and quantity). Plans will begin on the first day of classes and will end at final exams in each semester. There will be dates when meal plans are not in effect (nor will you be charged for them), such as holidays, which will be posted on the Dining Services website.

  • Each meal plan comes with an allotment of meals for the week (19, 15, 10). Two unlimited plans and a block plan are also available. 
  • The week starts on Friday and ends Thursday at midnight; therefore, every Friday morning the plan will reset with the appropriate number of meals.
  • Each time a student dines at one of our locations, a meal is deducted from the account.
  • Residential dining meals are served with unlimited seconds under an “all-you-care-to-eat” format. 
  • In the Hat Rack or the Coffee Shop, meal equivalencies are available providing students the opportunity to use meal swipes for selected combos or snack packages.  Note: the exclusive unlimited meal plan provides unlimited swipes in the cafeteria only.  
  • Students have until the Add/Drop date published in the Academic Calendar to change their meal plan.

At the end of the fall semester, any remaining HatterBucks will roll over to the spring semester. At the end of the spring semester any remaining HatterBucks will not roll over to the next academic term, nor are they refundable. Additional HatterBucks can be added at any time regardless of the plan selected. After the drop/add period for each semester, additional HatterBucks cannot be billed to the student account and must be added to the account using cash, check, or with Visa, Master Card, American Express, or Discover.
