Dining at the University of Delaware
Dining Services provides a variety of dining plan options and food choices. All-you-care-to-eat meals are served in four dining halls across campus, and Points can be used at food courts, snack bars, convenience stores, and concession stands.
Dining Hall hours are designed to fit your busy schedule. Schedules vary at each location, from early morning until late in the evening. For even greater flexibility, Kent Dining Hall is open continuously from breakfast through dinner. At Russell Dining Hall's "Beach Express," you can just stop in at lunch or dinner and select a meal to go. Dining halls offer tremendous variety and a great social atmosphere, and will become an integral part of your experience here at the University of Delaware.
Dining Plan Options
Dining Services presently offers a multitude of different dining plans, which have been tailored to fit the varying needs of the student body. Each plan has a designated number of Meals and Points, and each of the required options comes with five Guest Passes per semester. Take time to pick the plan that best suits your academic schedule and eating style. A list of dining plans is available on the Dining Services website.
About Your Dining Plan
Here are some important things to keep in mind regarding your dining plan:
Your University ID Card
Dining Meals and Points are accessed using your University ID card. Your ID card is not transferable. It can only be used by you!
Report a lost card immediately to prevent unauthorized use by calling UD1-CARD (831-2273), 24 hours per day. Replacement cards are issued at the ID Card Office in the Student Services Building. You will not be held accountable for Meals/Points transactions once you have reported your card lost or stolen.
FLEX greatly complements your dining plan by offering cashless spending power at all dining facilities and almost any campus location that accepts cash. For details, call UD1-CARD, stop by the Student Services Building, or click here.
Remember, a FLEX account complements, but is separate from, your dining plan.
Changing Your Dining Plan
You will be able to choose your dining plan using the online change form. After your initial choice, you have one final opportunity to change your dining plan from the day that classes begin until the drop/add deadline. The deadline to change your dining plan corresponds with the drop/add deadline for classes each sememster.
Canceling Your Dining Plan

If your Dining Services Agreement cancellation request is approved, your student account will be credited based on a proration of unused dining plan Meals for the remaining days in the term (less 14 days), plus the value of any unused Points. Any credit balance in your student account may be transferred to a FLEX account.
