“You don’t have to cook for yourself or clean your own bathroom. Huge time-saver!”

– Angelina, Busey Hall, Music
Throughout the year, University Housing surprises residents with exclusive events, giveaways and contests. You might even
see a T-Rex delivering prize packages or score free tickets and the “VIP” treatment at our tent before the big game.
Dining with University Housing is more than a meal plan….
» It’s a community of friends sharing a meal.
» It’s a commitment to sustainability through menu items grown on our student
  sustainable farm and energy reduction programs like our food waste recycling program.
» It’s a collaboration with campus cultural centers and community restaurants to offer
  authentic recipes that taste like home.
» It’s addressing food insecurity by offering the Everybody Eats program so those who
  need a hot meal can find one within our halls and collaborating with community
  agencies to provide leftover food to those in need.
» It’s nutrition services so you can nourish your mind and body.
» It’s building your leadership and teamwork skills as a dining student employee.
  (And you get a free meal when you work!)

 You could spend your limited time cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping. Or let our award-winning chefs design healthy and
 nutritious meals for you. Need extra assistance? Our in-house dietitian will work with you to create a plan for your specific needs.
You’ll never go hungry with five University Housing dining halls and five retail locations across campus to choose from.
Whether you are craving pizza or a hamburger and fries or something lighter like a salad or sushi, we’ve got you covered!

A meal plan is required, but you choose the plan that matches your appetite and schedule.
1 Classic Meal = 1 entry to All-You-Care-To-Eat Dining Hall Location » 1 Dining Dollar = $1

12 Classic Meals + 15 Dining Dollars
The most affordable plan.
Get a consistent number of meals to use each week. Use the added Dining Dollars for occasional hunger on the go.

10 Classic Meals + 45 Dining Dollars
The most popular plan.
Enjoy the consistency of a weekly meal plan with added flexibility. Use the extra weekly Dining Dollars for quick, light
meals or snacks.

All Classic Meals
Most like an unlimited plan.
Receive 47 classic meals per week. Eat at any of the dining halls whenever they are open — whether it’s a sit-down
meal, a quick snack, late-night munchies or just a beverage.

All Dining Dollars
The most flexible plan.
Receive 130 Dining Dollars per week. Use Dining Dollars to pay for what you eat, when you want to eat it. Eat at any
dining hall or get beverages, convenience foods and prepared food at University Housing retail locations anytime.

Extra flexibility! Add Illini Cash to your i-card for a convenient way to purchase extra meals at any University Housing
dining location, or grab-and-go items at one of our retail locations.


Students with special dietary needs can enjoy our meal plans! Consultation with our registered dietitian is available
to help with healthy eating, food allergies and intolerances and special diets.


“The food would be terrible, and I wouldn’t want to spend time there at all. I expected to want to go somewhere else
all the time. To my surprise, the people in my hall were polite, and the food was actually good. I was also fine with
spending a whole weekend just relaxing in my room.”

– Neha, Nugent Hall, Molecular & Cellular Biology
