Campus Dining Meal Plans

In order to meet your campus dining needs, the following meal plans are available. We look forward to serving students throughout the school 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 visit the STARREZ portal before the first Thursday of every semester (watch Blueview, Facebook, and Twitter for dates & times--or contact the Dining Office at 515.271.3175 with any questions).

Having trouble selecting a meal plan? Try considering your daily routine… Do you eat three meals a day? Will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to select a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle.

  • 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. Food is not allowed to be taken from Hubbell Dining.
  • Remember that Meal Cards are non-transferable. Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser. You can only use one board meal at a time, and up to four board meals a day.
  • Any additions or changes need to be made in person at the Dining Services office located in the Carnegie Hall.
