Resident and commuter students

The residential meal plans are customized for students who live in residential halls or around campus and offer a variety of options to fit every schedule. They feature a certain number of meals in the all-you-care-to-eat dining halls, a discounted amount of Cougar Cash and the convenience of dining at residential or retail locations.
