General Meal Plan Information

All undergraduate students living in any of the residential colleges during the fall and/or spring semesters are required to purchase a residential Meal Plan. A Meal Plan must be purchased each semester of occupancy. Students who do not select a meal plan upon enrollment in Housing will automatically be signed up for the Unlimited Meal Plan.

  • First Year/Freshmen residents must choose between the Unlimited, 19/Week, or 14/Week meal plans.
  • Sophmore (minimum of 24 credits or 2 semesters in housing) and above residents, may enroll in any residential meal plan. 
  • Meal plan availability during the application process is based on student current class status.

  • How the Meal Plan Works

    Residential Traditional Plans indicate the number of meals a week a student can use in either of the two residential dining halls on campus. A meal week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday night.

    Residential and Commuter Block Plans indicate the number of meals a semester a student can use in either of the two residential dining halls on campus. Unused Block meals roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester but are forfeited at the end of the spring semester.

    A student's Cane Card is required for access to the residential dining halls as well as purchases made at retail locations.

  • How to Sign Up for a Residential Meal Plan

    Sign on to CaneLink (canelink.miami.edu) and under the "UM Housing" section, go to meal plan step and select your preferred meal plan.

    Once residential colleges have opened, if you would like to sign up or make a change to your plan, email diningservices@miami.edu. Please provide your full name, student number, and meal plan choice. 

  • Dining Dollars

    Dining Dollars are a compliment to your meal swipes; use them when you cannot make it back to the residential dining hall, or when you just want a change!

    Dining Dollar balances roll over from fall to spring semester but are forfeited at the end of the spring semester. Once the spring semester begins, you will have two Dining Dollar balances on your Cane Card, one for the fall and one for the spring semester.

    Dining Dollars may also be used at the residential dining halls if you have depleted your meals for the week.

    Dining Dollars are accepted at any of the food service locations on the Campus Dining Map.

  • Guest Passes and Takeout

    Both Residential Traditional and Block Meal Plans come with five (5) guest passes a semester. 

    Commuter Block Meal Plans come with two (2) guest passes a semester.

    Takeout options are available at the entrance of the residential dining halls; students may only use one meal swipe per meal period. (Example: Upon entry to the dining hall a student may elect to dine in or select a takeout meal option).

  • Meal Plan Contract
  • Meal Plan Payment

    Residential Meal Plan charges for the academic year post each fall and spring semester.

    Commuter Block Plans are billed to the students account upon request for enrollment.

    Meal Plan charges to your student account can be viewed in CaneLink.
