FAQs

Meal plans are convenient, flexible, and loaded with options. Your meal plan gets you access to 32 dining locations all across campus with a range of menus and offerings.  You’ll get guaranteed value, whether you eat on campus three times a week or three times a day!  We’ve got you covered.

You are welcome to change your plan up until the 10th class day, allowing you to choose the meal plan that best suits your schedule.  You may not choose a meal plan smaller than the default meal plan for your housing status.

Weekly meals are loaded on Sunday Morning and expire Saturday after Dinner. All Access is exactly that, it gives you unlimited access to the dining hall as much as you want in a day. Declining balance rolls over from fall to spring and can even be used until the end of the summer. These plans expire at the end of the summer term.  Meals (block, weekly or all-access) are for use in the semester in which they are assigned. You will be charged each semester for the meal plan of your choosing.

Tiger Dining’s Registered Dietitian, Kaiten Zajac, is a primary resource for students who have food allergies or special dietary needs. She may be reached at zajac-kaiten@aramark.com. Kaiten enjoys meeting with students and walking them through their dining options to make sure they are comfortable with our options when they arrive on campus. This may include meeting with chefs, dining area managers and other support staff, as well as sharing resources where recipe ingredients may be found. Campus Dish: www.auburn.campusdish.com is a great resource to access more information about menus, ingredients, and allergens. Additionally, both of our dining halls feature True Balance stations, where students can find foods made without the 8 major allergens. For more information about these locations or any questions, please reach out to Kaiten.

Occasionally,  we’ll encounter a medical or religious dining situation that needs very special consideration.  We offer dining plan accommodations for students  who cannot dine on campus due to severe medical conditions, religious dietary restrictions and those who are enrolled at Auburn, but are away from campus for the semester.  The process to secure a dining accommodation is mainly done online. You may find more details here: Dining Plan Accommodations
