FACTS ABOUT MEAL PLANS
  • All resident students must purchase a meal plan. First-year and second-year residential students are required to have The Works meal plan. After completing the first two years, a resident student may select from The Works or Block 150 options.
  • Resident students who are senior- or graduate-level may select the Senior Block 50 or any of the above listed meal plans.
  • Each meal plan listed above is available to nonresident students.
  • Meal plans may be used in Umphrey Lee Center, Arnold Dining Commons or in McElvaney Commons (Mac’s Place) by using meal swipes.
  • The Works and Block 150 meal plan both have 10 Guest Passes, per semester, which can be used for any guest, provided members are present at the time of transaction. Guests of members on a Block 50 meal plan are admitted by paying the door entry rate per guest from the member’s Flex Dollars account.
  • Flex Dollars are a stored-value, declining-balance program that works on the same principles as a debit card.
  • Flex Dollars may be used to purchase meals or commodities at any SMU Dining Services location on campus.
  • Flex Dollar balances carry over from summer to fall to spring terms, expiring at the end of each academic year.
  • Door rates for dining without a meal plan at the dining halls are: $8.56 (plus tax) for breakfast, $10.46 (plus tax) for lunch and $12.17 (plus tax) for dinner. Rates for continuous service periods between standard meal periods are calculated at the prior meal-period rate.
  • A meal plan may be changed through the last day of add/drop, allowing one change per term for all plans. Unless a different meal plan is selected, students will be enrolled automatically in the spring for the same meal plan selected for the fall term.
