Students Asked – We Listened. New Meal Plans are Here!

BU Dining Services knows how important eating well is to your campus experience. Through our recent surveys, students let us know that they’re looking for more flexible meal plans. Our new meal plans are designed with flexibility and convenience in mind.

What’s new?

  • More dining points on every meal plan. Dine with us at more than 28 locations across campus, including Starbucks and Panda Express
  • Options to upgrade for even more dining points
  • Never worry about running out of meals. All-Access dining allows students to dine around their busy class schedules. Drop into the closest dining hall for a meal, a quick snack, or a cup of coffee with friends.
  • Even more flexibility and convenience. Dine with us all day! Visit select locations as early as 7:00 am to as late as 2:00 am.

Convenience Points are separate from traditional meal plans and may be purchased through the Student Portal in addition to dining plans in initial amounts of $100, $200, $300, or in any other increment of $25. Additional Convenience Points may be purchased in $25 increments during the summer. Convenience Points may be used like cash to buy additional meals served at the summer residence dining room, or to dine at any of the on-campus dining locations open during the summer on an à la carte basis, or at City Convenience stores, Barnes & Noble at Boston University, most vending machines on campus, and laundry machines.
