Meal Plan Options

Residents in Mary Park Hall, Mary Ward Hall, Towers Junior Suites, Towers at Centennial Square and the Village at Centennial Square must select from one of the following meal plans.  

HOW IT WORKS | Your meal plan is loaded onto your SF State ID when you check-in on Move-in Day. Each time you dine in or grab a to-go meal at City Eats or The Bricks, your SF State ID will be swiped at the register and one meal will be deducted from your plan. You may use as many meal swipes as you'd like in a day as long as you have them available on your account.  

MEAL SWIPE TIPS

  • A meal swipe is best used for full meals. If you just want to grab a beverage or maybe some fruit, use your Flex Dollars or Gator Dollars. 
  • Be sure to keep track of how many swipes you use so that you don't run out or let any expire at the end of the week. 
Voluntary Meal Plans

Residents at Manzanita Square, University Park North, and University Park South or students who live off campus may purchase a 100 Block or 50 Block Meal Plan to be used at their convenience. Flex Dollars are not provided with voluntary meal plans. 

HOW IT WORKS

  • Blocks load a lump sum of meal swipes onto your SF State ID card to be used at any time.
  • One block will be deducted from your balance each time you dine in or grab a meal to go.
  • Blocks do not expire at the end of the week like with mandatory meal plans, so your balance is available from week-to-week until it is depleted. 

Additional Information

Flex dollars* are funds included with your meal plan to use for retail items at The Bricks. Flex Dollars are great because you can grab a quick snack, Starbucks beverage, or to-go meal** between classes, late at night when the dining center is closed, or whenever you feel like it. Plus there's no need to worry about having cash on hand. Flex Dollars are loaded right onto your SF State ID*! Each purchase is subtracted from your Flex Dollar balance and you can add more funds any time you'd like. 

*Flex Dollars will be disbursed in two increments. Each after the meal plan change deadline for each semester.
**To-go meals consist of an entrée, dessert and a beverage.

USE GATOR DOLLARS! Gator Dollars are the University currency that work like a prepaid debit card with funds kept on your student ID card. No need to carry cash or additional debit or credit cards. Gator Dollars may be used at any participating on-campus dining location including Bricks and City Eats. 

Please Note: Gator Dollars are not provided by Housing as part of the meal plan. Gator Dollars can be purchased through the OneCard Office.

  • Meals are not transferrable.
  • Meals cannot roll over from week-to-week or to a new semester.
  • For mandatory meal plans, unused meals expire at the end of Saturday. Meals load on Sunday for the new week.
  • Guest meals can be purchased with a meal plan swipe, Flex Dollars or Gator Dollars. 
Residents can request a change of meal plan once a semester. The last day to request a meal plan change is:

Fall 2022: August 29, 2022  
Spring 2023: February 6, 2023
