Meal Plans

conn hall

The university offers a wide variety of campus meal plans to fit all different schedules and lifestyles.  All residence hall students are required to have a meal plan. The SCSU Hoot Loot Card is required to access these student meal plans.  Standing Reservation plans can be purchased at any time.

Meals per Week:

The 19, 15, 12 Meal Plans are intended to be used in Southern's all-you-care-to-eat Connecticut Dining Hall.  However, meals can also be used in any food service dining location on-campus.

Meal Allotment per Week:

Each plan comes with a specified number of weekly meals to be used in any of the food service retail locations. Each time you use a  meal, the meal is subtracted from your meal balance. On the 19, 15  and 12 plans the meals do not carry over from week to week; they are reset to the specified number in accordance to your meal plan every Monday morning.  On the My Meals Block Plans, the meals are not reset each week. 

Guest Meals:

The 19, 15 and 12 meal plans come with a set number of guest meals for the semester.  These can be used to treat a friend in Southern's dining community.

Residential Students have from two weeks before the start of a semester until the end of the first week in each semester to change their meal plan.  Participation in the 19, 15 or 12 meal plan is required for all students living in non-kitchen equipped rooms while all students in kitchen equipped rooms must minimally participate in the $300 declining balance meal plan.  Residents are able to change their meal plan 2 weeks prior and 1 week after the first day of classes.  To change your meal plan online through the BannerWeb system, visit: https://bannerweb.southernct.edu
