University of Houston Dining Services Offers Convenient Meal Plans to Faculty and Staff

Meal plans are generally thought to be for college students; however this is not the case at the University of Houston. The University of Houston Dining Services is pleased to announce that the faculty and staff members of the university can purchase block meal plans for use at the campus dining halls. These meal plans are designed specifically to provide a better dining experience and value for the faculty and staff and will allow them to network with coworkers and meet with students.

Faculty and staff members can purchase meals in bundles of 5, 10, or 15. These meal plan options can be used at the Real Food on Campus (RFoC) all-you-care-to-eat restaurants in Moody Towers or Oberholtzer Hall.

There’s no risk with purchasing a meal plan as meals roll over from month to month and can be purchased via payroll deduction. To take advantage of this great offer, interested participants can simply sign up by visiting the Business Services office in McElhinney Hall, room 325.

Here is a breakdown of the meal plans with price and average savings:

Meal Plan Options Price Average Savings Per Lunch Meal
Block 5 5 meals per month $30 + tax per month $1.00
Block 10 10 meals per month $55 + tax per month $1.50
Block 15 15 meals per month $80 + tax per month $1.67
Cougar Cash $25.00 Declining Balance $25.00 minimum/per month
