Important Info

Selection of a Campus Dining Services Meal Plan entitles you to a number of meals and Flex Dollars on your Mountain Lion Student I.D. Card, which allows you purchasing power equivalent to the plan you have selected.  Meals and Flex Dollars expire at the end of the semester, but any added Munch Money does not expire at the end of the semester.

Do you have particular dietary needs? 
Please let us know!  Our Campus Dining Services Program can accommodate your special dietary requirements.  For more information, please contact the general manager at 719-255-3966.

One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • Please bus your dishes and disposables from your table when you have finished dining
  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that Meal Cards are non-transferable.  Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.

A Plan For You!

In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the 2013-2014 academic year.  If you need to purchase a meal plan, or if you would like to make a change to the plan you have already selected, simply contact Housing at housing@uccs.edu or click on the appropriate links following the meal plan descriptions below.
