Below is our guide to "How Meal Plans Work" at Bloomsburg University. Here you will find details on the options you have available to you for dining on campus.
You can also visit the Dining Services website for up-to-date menus and information.
Each meal plan comes with either $250 or $300 in flexible dollars. FLEX was added to meal plans to provide flexibility much like the Cash Equivalency. FLEX can be used in many ways, for example: supplementing a meal beyond the Cash Equivalency rate, a snack anytime during the day, a pizza in the evening, a catered event with friends or maybe an after dinner flavored coffee. It can be used for a special food items offered at any of the campus dining facilities, or to purchase a gift basket or birthday cake for someone special. The FLEX-ibility is yours. FLEX dollars can be added to your account in any increment above $25, by going to Myhousing at http://housingweb.bloomu.edu. Off campus or upper campus students can opt to have a FLEX-only plan. A FLEX-only plan must be pre-paid in advance with a minimum starting balance of $100.
Very Important Note: FLEX dollars are only available during the fall and spring semesters of each year. Any remaining FLEX dollars automatically carry over from the fall to the spring semester each academic year. However, any remaining FLEX dollars at the end of each spring semester are forfeited completely if not used. FLEX dollars must be spent within the academic year that they are posted and cannot be used to "pre-pay" for an event or services or be exchanged for any type of gift certificate.
All campus dining facilities are available to meal plan holders, University personnel and visitors. Meal Plan holders may use: "meals" (from their meal plan balance within the use and acceptance rules), FLEX, Husky Gold, cash or credit. Husky Gold, cash, and credit are accepted in all campus dining facilities for guests and visitors to campus. Hours of operation in each facility are listed on the Campus Dining website.
