Summer meal plans coming to UH this summer
University of Houston Dining
Services is proud to announce that it will offer summer meal
plans for students during the 2013 summer session.
The new summer meal plans are being offered in response to
students’ requests for discounts and convenience on campus
during the summer. Summer meal plans will run for the entire
four summer sessions from Monday, June 3, through Monday, Aug.
With the university striving to gain Tier One recognition, the
student population has increased dramatically, thus increasing
the number of summer student enrollment from 14,685 in 2010 to
15,101 in 2012 – a 3.5 percent increase. The larger student
enrollment requires additional affordable dining options.
With meal plans students can enjoy affordable hassle-free dining
“Summer meal plans will extend the value already found in the
dining halls and retail areas,” said Maria Honey, Assistant
Director for Marketing and Communications, University Services
and Housing. “Not to mention the convenience of having the meal
plan on their Cougar Card, which allows them to track their meal
swipes and Cougar Cash. With a meal plan, there is no need to
charge their credit card or to have cash on hand.”
UH Dining is offering three different block meal plans: Block
20, Block 40 and Block 80. The Block 20 plan gives students 20
all-you-care-to-eat meals and $50 in Cougar Cash. The Block 40
includes 40 all-you-care-to-eat meals and $100 in Cougar Cash.
The Block 80 gives students the most for their money with 80
all-you-care-to-eat meals and $150 in Cougar Cash.
Meals can be used Monday through Sunday at the Fresh Food
Company in Moody Towers for breakfast and lunch. The hall also
will be open for dinner during orientations and high traffic
dates. For a complete list of station options and hours of
operation, visit the
UH Dining website.
Cougar Cash is redeemable in all other UH Dining locations that
are open during the summer including the University Satellite,
Food Trucks, Einstein’s, Taco Cabana and Cougar Xpress Markets.
Additionally, students can purchase one of four pre-set Cougar
Cash plans: $300, $500, $800 and $1,000. Cougar Cash earns a 10
percent discount at the Fresh Food Company in Moody Towers and
can be used at the retail venues around campus.
