Non-residential students interested in dining on campus may choose from any of the meal plans listed above.

How Meal Plans Work

All UArts meal plans are declining balance plans, providing a dollar-for-dollar value and the flexibility to use them freely for a la carte meals, snacks, and drinks at both of our UArts campus dining locations: Terra Market and Mangia Cafe. It’s like a debit account just for dining throughout the semester! Meal plan Dining Dollars are not transferable to other outlets or facilities on or off campus.

Additional Dining Dollars can be added at any time throughout the year, in any amount, through the Office of Residence Life on the 3rd floor of Gershman Hall.

Who is required to have a meal plan?
All UArts residential students are required to have a meal plan.

Is there any all-you-care-to-eat dining on campus?
Terra Market has transitioned from an all-you-care-to-eat dining hall to more of a retail food hall experience. This change will better suit our students’ lifestyles, provide a better value and offer a more modern dining experience with the convenience of mobile ordering!

Do unused Dining Dollars rollover?
Meal plan Dining Dollars do not rollover from semester to semester. Any funds left in a student’s account at the end of the semester are forfeited.

Can I use Dining Dollars in the vending machines or off campus?
Dining Dollars cannot be used in campus vending machines. Both dining locations will have a robust variety of retail snacks and drinks available to purchase with Dining Dollars.

I have special dietary needs or restrictions. Is there anything for me to eat?
Yes! We understand the diverse needs of our campus community and offer a variety of diet-conscious alternatives such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free and more at every location. We encourage you to talk with our dining team for more information.
