Meal Exchange

In support of Five College academic opportunities, a dining meal exchange is available for any student enrolled in a meal plan at one of the five colleges. A request for participating in the meal exchange will be granted for academic reasons only. Other meal exchange requests, for which there is a compelling reason, will be reviewed on an individual basis.

To request permission to participate in the meal exchange a student must follow the guidelines provided by the Dining Service office on the home campus where the student has enrolled in a meal plan. With the application the student must provide documentation of enrollment in a course at the other campus where the student is seeking permission to eat under the meal exchange program.

To utilize the meal exchange or obtain further information, contact the Dining Service office on your home campus. The links below connect to details and contact information for meal exchange at the campuses.
