Meal Plan Policies

Third and fourth year students may cancel, or reduce meal plan up until the Thursday of the first week of each quarter. Second year students may reduce their meal plan up until the Thursday of the first week of each quarter. To add the commuter meal plan for the 2021-2022 Academic Year, students can contact the ID Card Office.

All second year students are required to at least have the 125 block meal plan. However, in special circumstances (Food allergies, medical reasons, etc.) students may petition to be released from their meal plan through the Disability Services Program.

Students who would like to change their meal plan can request to do so through DU Housing Portal. Students who would like to enroll in a commuter student meal plan should contact the ID Card Office.
