Meal Plans

All students living in College residences are required to participate in a meal plan. Minimum levels of participation are determined by a student’s class year and College residence.

Participation Requirements

    • Students who participating in their first year of study at Allegheny College are eligible for Plan A, Plan B or Plan C.
    • Plan B will be assigned if no plan is selected.
    • Students in the graduating class of 2023 or earlier are grandfathered into participation in the the plans that existed prior to Fall 2020 OR eligible to choose Plan A, Plan B or Plan C listed below.  Please see room draw for details about choosing previous meal plans.
    • Other restrictions may apply to students in the graduating class of 2023 or earlier based on housing choices.

Meal Plans (BOARD & MUNCH)

Our meal plans have been thoughtfully designed to ensure that students are properly fueled for each day and week throughout the entire semester. Structured as “Inclining Balance” plans, swipes and Munch Money are deposited into your meal plan account weekly, and unused meals and funds roll over from week to week.  Swipes and munch money do not carry over from semester to semester.

BOARD

  • All you can eat for one swipe at Brooks Dining Hall

MUNCH Money

  • Used at McKinleys to purchase food a la carte.
  • Brooks Dining Hall for additional meal swipes.
  • Wrecking Ball Café in Pelletier


Board and MUNCH cannot be used off Campus.

Changing Meal Plans

Students may change their meal plan decision through the first two weeks of classes each semester. The meal plan change form is available on the self service portal .

  • The meal plan that you request for the fall semester will also be applied to the spring semester unless another change is submitted.
  • If you change your meal plan from a large plan to a smaller plan, the large plan will be prorated on your account and the requested plan will be added to your account.

Supplementing Meal Plans

Gator Cash funds can be used to supplement your MUNCH money.
