Dining Program
At Illinois Wesleyan University we are doing "something uncommon" in the commons. We know that each student has his or her own needs, wants, taste, appetite, and schedule. We recognize the value of choice - in meal plan, menu, quantity, and nutritional content. Our objective is to promote good variety and service and a quality dining experience one customer at a time. That's why we've designed a variety of plans to meet a variety of needs - your needs and needs for each other Illinois Wesleyan student.

Enrollment in a meal plan is mandatory for all students residing in University residence halls. All other students may elect to enroll in one of the plans. Any new student residing in a University residence hall who does not select a meal plan will be placed automatically Block 220 meal plan per semseter ($50 in Munch Money). The default plan for continuing students is Block plan 175 ($125 per semester Munch Money and 40 Meals MayTerm $30 May Term Munch Money).


Choices, Choices
Each meal plan offers a variety of meal options satisfying varied dietary requirements, personal tastes and individual schedules. So you can be certain that you will always have food available to you; and each plan provides unlimited seconds for all meals taken in the Commons. [ show/hide food options ]

Munch Money
Got the munchies for late night snacks? Off-hour treats? We've got just the answer:

Munch Money is a cash allowance within your traditional board plans that allows you to satisfy your snack attacks in the Dugout Snack Bar or at our own Starbucks at any open hour. You can also use Munch Money to purchase guest meals in the Commons. Munch Money provided as part of your meal plan is forfeited if unused at the end of each semester and may term. .

Additional Munch Money
If you wish to have more Munch Money than your plan provides, you may go to the Food Service Office and give them a check payable to IWU for the amount of Munch Money you wish to add. Unlike the Plan Munch Money provided as part of your meal plan, Additional Munch Money which you add on does not expire if unused at the end of the academic year.

Costs
The basic plans cost $3,384.00 for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Flexibility
New for the 2013-2014 School Year, is the option to use your meal plans in campus retail dinning service outlets during All hours, as a meal exchange with our Pick Three selections. To use one of your meals in the Dugou t (Grill 155, Sub-Connection, Simply To Go), Tommy's Grille, Hatties, Freshens and Coffee Shoppe.  As always Munch Money may be used at all locations at all times.

 

* Unused munch money does not carry from Fall 2013 to Spring 2014 and to May Term

* Unused Meals from the Blocks program will not carry over from fall 2013 to Spring 2014 and to May Term.

Your Cooperation, Please
Our goal is to provide you with the food you want at a fair price. The plan is priced to include your meals (less a missed meal factor) and your Munch Money, if any. It is not priced to cover your snacks between meals or food for a friend (except through the Munch Money). We therefore ask that you refrain from taking food from the dining hall. It's not fair to the other students. Your cooperation on this and on other items such as minimizing wasted food helps us give you the best value for your money!

Change of Meal Plan
  If you decide that your selected meal plan will not suit your needs, please go to My IWU Housing Portal for changes to your plans. All meal plan changes must be in writing. For fall semester, 2013, ALL CHANGES must be made by August 29th. For spring semester, 2014, ALL CHANGES must be made by DECEMBER 9th, 2013 ( Reading Day). Please note that you may not change between a plus plan and a basic plan once classes begin for the academic year.
