Plans Made for You

Kent State University Dining Services is proud to offer various Dining Plans to suit your needs. The Dining Plan is an essential part of the Kent State experience. Our plans are set-up on a declining balance system. This means that you are able to use your Dining Plan how you want, when you want. Everything is priced individually, so you pay for exactly what you're getting.

Dining dollars are the university currency provided through your dining plan used exclusively at over 20 locations. The amount of dining dollars you receive depends on the dining plan you select. Your dining dollars are used to purchase meals and snacks at on campus locations.
