New Off-Campus Meal Plan On Sale Now
After years of requests for a discounted meal plan for students who live off campus, Housing and Food Services is just now offering plans designed to give “commuter” students a discount at on campus eateries. Well, sort of.
Students can enroll through eLiving to purchase plans at either $500 or $1,000 levels. Like typical meal plans, funds carry over between the fall and spring semesters and anything remaining is forfeited at the end of the spring semester.
There is a bit of a catch, though — commuter meal plans will not render the same 65% discount as their on campus counterparts, but rather a 10% discount, the same discount offered for LionCash users. However, unlike LionCash, commuter meal plans are paid for through a student’s bursar account, and financial aid like loans, grants, and scholarships can be used to foot the cost.
If you’re considering this LionCash alternative, you better think fast. The plan is available for purchase through July 13 for the fall semester. For more information and a full list of participating eateries, check out the Housing and Food Services website.
