Undergraduate, Graduate, and even Commuter Students are able to sign up for meal plans through studentlink.

If you are assigned to a dormitory-style residence, you’re required to choose one of the five residence dining plans(14-Plus, Unlimited, Kosher, 330 or 250 Plans.) Boston University offers a choice of five dining plans for on campus students during the academic year, all designed to meet a variety of tastes and schedules. Each plan includes a combination of meals (to be used in the all-you-care-to-eat dining rooms), Convenience Points or Dining Points (to be used at on-campus restaurant, cafe, and convenience store locations).

If you don’t select a dining plan, you will be assigned to the 14-Plus Plan. If you are assigned to an on-campus, apartment-style residence, you are not automatically assigned to a dining plan but you may choose from any of the dining plans above or two Apartment Plans are also available.

How do I sign up for an Apartment Plan?

Students who are currently enrolled in classes and live in apartment-style residences on or off-campus are eligible to purchase an Apartment Plan. Students are able to sign up through the Student Link, under the Food & Shelter tab, by clicking “Add or Change your Dining Plan.”

How do I change my dining plan?

Changes are accepted during the summer and for approximately the first 4 weeks of each semester (Thursday, September 24, 2020, for Fall 2020 and Thursday, February 11, 2021, for Spring 2021). To make a change, visit the Student Link and select “Add or Change your Dining Plan.” If you live off campus or in an on-campus, apartment-style residence and you chose a dining plan or apartment plan, please refer to your plan agreement for policies regarding change and cancellation. Since each plan has varying amounts of meals and points, additional costs may be incurred if meal and/or point usage is greater than expected levels at the time of the change.  For more information contact the Terrier Card Office at 617-353-9966 or tco@bu.edu.
