2018-2019 Meal Plans

NEW MEAL PLANS COMING FALL 2018!

Beginning Fall 2018, Kent State University Dining Services will offer a variety of meal plans tailored to promote the health and well-being of students while complementing their busy schedules. These meal plans were designed specifically for Kent State students to be convenient, flexible and loaded with options. Meal Plans will give you easy access to dining locations across campus with a range of hours including the 24/7 location, Rosie's Diner. Including Meal Swipes, Unlimited Meals, Guest Meals and Declining Balance Dollars in the residential plans, students receive higher value, whether eating on campus three times a week or three times a day. With a meal plan there's no need to carry cash or a credit card; it's all on your FLASHcard!

How it works

All Fall 2018 Meal Plans are comprised of Meal Swipes and Declining Balance Dollars. Students living on campus & required to purchase a meal plan should sign up through the Residence Services Housing Application. Commuter students or students living on campus meeting an exemption criteria are not required to purchase a meal plan. However, students may sign up for a meal plan in FlashLine or by contacting the FLASHcard Office.

  • Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes are the building blocks of the All-Access and Block meal plans. A cashier will simply swipe a student's FLASHcard when entering Eastway Fresh Food Company, Kent Market 2 or Prentice Café and they are good to go! Students with All-Access meal plans will have an unlimited number of swipes into Eastway Fresh Food Company, Kent Market 2 or Prentice Café, while students with Block meal plans will have a set number of swipes per semester.

  • Declining Balance

Declining Balance are the dollars included with a Meal Plan and are used like a debit plan. Grab Starbucks, a meal in The HUB or some quick snacks in any campus market! These dollars go directly onto your FLASHcard and can only be used at on-campus dining retail locations.

  • Guest Meals

Guest Meals offer flexibility to treat friends or family to a meal in Eastway Fresh Food Company, Kent Market 2 or Prentice Café!  Each All-Access meal plan comes with a specific number of guest meals each semester that are loaded directly on your FLASHcard.

  • Meal Exchange

Meal Exchange is an added bonus to the All-Access and Block meal plans. These will give you the maximum flexibility and variety in your campus dining experience. Based on the meal plan you choose, you can redeem a certain amount of meal swipes per day at Rosie’s Diner or George T. Simon III Cafe from a select set of menu offerings.
