Auxiliary Services / Dining

Under the direction of the Auxiliary Services Office, Sodexo is the designated campus food service provider and helps meet the needs of those who eat in the cafeteria and elsewhere on campus. Residents on special diets and schedules need to make arrangements for meal accommodations with the food service Director Gilbert Garza at gilbert.garza@sodexo.com. All students residing in the residence halls are required to select one of the available meal plans for each semester to be used for on campus dining. Each plan outlines a specific number of meals to be used per week at the cafeteria. In addition, each plan includes a declining amount of Dining Dollars that can be used in the Food Court and/or Convenience (C-Store) in the Student Union.

Residents of The Village Apartments must purchase the minimum meal plan of $300.00 in Dining Dollars for each fall and spring semester.

Residents have the choice of the following options:
