Dining service

If you are assigned to a dormitory-style residence, you must choose a dining plan. Three dining plans are available; each comes with a specific allotment of meals per week and the option to purchase Convenience Points. Meals may be used for all-you-care-to-eat breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner meals at The Fresh Food Company at Warren Towers, 700 Commonwealth Avenue. Convenience Points may be used like cash to buy additional meals served at The Fresh Food Company at Warren Towers, 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, Agganis Arena concessions, most vending machines on campus, and laundry machines in the larger residences. To start off the summer, we recommend an opening balance of $100 to $300 in Convenience Points to cover some basic needs.

Dining plans are valid for the full seven-day dining week, beginning Monday through Sunday. If you are assigned to dormitory-style residences and do not choose a dining plan, you will be assigned to the 14 Plus with no Convenience Points. Dining plan changes will be allowed only during the first week of each summer session. For Summer Session 1, the deadline for dining plan changes is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 25, 2018; for Summer Session 2, the deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, July 6, 2018. To change dining plans, you must bring your Boston University Terrier Card to the Terrier Card Office, 775 Commonwealth Avenue, lower level and complete a dining plan change form. Changes will become effective on the first Monday following the submission of the change request. There may be costs associated with dining plan changes. No refund is given for unused meals.

If you are assigned to an apartment-style residence or live off campus, you have the option to purchase a dining plan or Convenience Points Plan with a check or money order. If you select this option, you must complete an Optional Dining Plan Agreement for one of the three dining plans offered or a Convenience Points Plan Agreement for a points-only plan. Optional Dining Plan and Convenience Points Plan Agreements will be available at the beginning of the summer at the Terrier Card Office.

Additional Convenience Points can be purchased throughout the summer in increments of $25 with a check or money order at the Terrier Card Office from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
