Unlimited Dining

Along with our block meal plans, Dining Services offers the Unlimited Meal Plan.

Students can enjoy meals from each plan at any of our dining halls: The View, Northsider and Cornerstone Kitchen. Our dining halls have multiple stations that offer a healthy array of menu items daily. In addition, each plan comes with dining dollars that can be used to purchase food or beverages in any on-campus dining venue, including retail locations like T's and Scooter's, coffee shops like The Loft, Stack's Cafe and STEAM Cafe and our convenience stores Summit Marketplace and Corner Market.

All meal plans (except for the Block 70 meal plan) also include guest meals, which can be used by friends, family, or the student themselves at any time throughout the semester.

Residential students may have meal plan requirements and should contact Residence Life with any questions.  All first-year resident students are on the Unlimited Meal Plan.

The unlimited plan is as great as it sounds — unlimited trips to Northsider, Cornerstone Kitchen or The View morning, noon and night.

This plan is the closest option to having your own kitchen and pantry and it offers the flexibility that a college student's lifestyle demands. Stop by for an essential cup of coffee before your first class, then return afterward for a hearty breakfast. Grab a snack during a study break between regular meals and get what you need during each trip. With this plan you'll have all the nutrients and energy needed to thrive.

During the semester, our dining halls on the St. Paul campus — The View and The Northsider — offer continuous service from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., so you can stop by for a meal or snack whenever your schedule allows. In Minneapolis, meal plan swipes can be used to eat breakfast or lunch at Cornerstone Kitchen from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Please note, you cannot take food or beverages out of the dining halls. If you need something on-the-go, you can use your dining dollars, eXpress, or credit/debit card at T's, Scooter'sSummit Marketplace or any of our coffee locations.
