Dining Services


Telephone: (678) 466-4213

Dining on campus isn’t one-size-fits-all. Our dining program is designed with student in mind and offers a variety of options. If you’re looking to enjoy a sit-down meal with friends or a quick snack on the go, we’ve got something to fit every appetite.

Meal Plans

Meal plans are your best value for dining on campus. Some meal plans include Dining Dollars which are tax-exempt, making your money go a little farther. Residents of Laker Hall are required to select one of the semester meal plans during the Laker Hall contract process. Laker Village residents have the option to select any meal plan during the Housing contract process. All other students may purchase a meal plan in the LakerCard Center at any point during the semester. During the days of Bookstore Bucks, meal plans may be purchased in the LakerCard Center using available financial aid. Purchase with cash or card anytime.
