Life gets crazy — let us take care of the food! We're open daily with fresh, convenient dining options to accommodate your taste and dietary considerations.

Meal swipes vs. dining dollars

Meal swipes

Meal swipes are a specific number of meals that can be used at the Eatery on East or Food Hall 1923. One meal swipe equals one entry into either dining hall for an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal!

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars provide the flexibility to eat at campus retail dining and market locations, including Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Starbucks. Dining Dollars work just like a debit card, deducting charges from the balance. Note: Unused dining dollars will roll over from the fall to the spring term and expire at the end of the spring term.

Meal plan options

Students living on campus

All students living in a residence hall (excluding Lumberjack Village Building 3) are required to have a meal plan from the "on-campus plan" options. If you do not choose a specific "on-campus plan", you'll receive the 7-day 14 Premium plan by default.

Commuter students, faculty and staff members

Both "on-campus" and "off-campus" meal plans are available for residents of Lumberjack Village Building 3, commuter students, and faculty and staff members to purchase. Signing up is voluntary, but the savings and convenience are real!

"On-campus" meal plan options include more meal swipes and dining dollars, perfect for those who spend a lot of time on our beautiful campus.

"Off-campus" meal plan options are designed to take meal prep off your list when you don't have the time! For SFA employees, the faculty and staff meal plan options are ideal for those who want something quick and convenient on days they don't bring something from home.
