Whether you live on campus, commute in for classes or work for the University, food is an important part of your daily life. Food fuels your body and mind to help you have the most productive day possible. That’s why UH Dining Services offers a variety of meal plans at discounted prices that help take the guesswork out of eating on campus, no matter what your situation.

Residential meal plans are designed for students who live in the on-campus residence halls or the nearby apartment complexes. These plans provide three meals a day either in the dining halls, at the retail locations or a combination of both. All-Access plans provide unlimited access to the dining halls and are perfect for students who eat many small meals or snack throughout the day, while Lifestyle plans provide a structured number of meals per week for students who keep a very set schedule. Both plan types also come with Cougar Cash that you can use to eat in the food courts, at the food trucks and in the convenience stores. You can eat for as little as $4.23 per meal with a residential meal plan!

Commuter meal plans provide easy breakfast, lunch or dinner to students who drive in for classes but may not have time to return home for lunch. The block plans include both a set number of meals in the dining halls as well as Cougar Cash to spend in the food courts and convenience stores, and can provide as few as two meals per week or as many as nine meals per week.

Faculty/Staff meal plans are designed to give faculty and staff members a discount when dining in the residential dining halls. Participants can choose to purchase five, 10 or 15 meals per month in addition to Cougar Cash.
