Meal Plan Information

How My Meal Plan Works

So, How Does My Meal Plan Work?

An All Access Meal Plan will allow you access to, The Market Place, our “all you care to eat” dining facility with unlimited entries each meal period. If you do not like what we are serving in the Market Place at any given meal period, you are welcome to use a meal exchange for your convenience at one of our other great locations across campus.

So then, What is Meal Exchange?

Meal Exchange allows you to get a full meal, for no additional cost, at one of the other dining locations on campus.  Meal Exchange is considered a “meal swipe” once this is used, you will be unable to use again until the start of the next period.



What times are the Meal Periods then?

Meal Period: For your convenience we offer six different meal periods throughout the day.  Breakfast, Mid-Morning, Lunch, Mid-Afternoon, Dinner, & Late Night. Please see below for meal period times.  

Period Time
Breakfast Period #1 7:00 am - 9:30 am
Mid-Morning Period #2 9:30 am- 11:00 am
Lunch Period #3

11:00 am - 2:30 pm

Mid Afternoon Period #4 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Dinner Period #5 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Late Night Period #6 9:00 pm -1:00 am


What Other Meal Plans are Available?

Block Plans can be purchased by Commuters & Off Campus Students.  Block plans allow you to a set number of meals 30 or 60 per semester. Each meal can be used to access the Market Place or used for meal exchange at one of our other retail locations on campus.  But with the block plan you can use your meals at any given time with no restrictions to meal periods.

Anytime Plans have 3 different offerings available for purchase, 14, 10, or 7, these meal plans are broken down by meals per week. You can access to the Market Place or utilize meal exchange at one of our other retail locations on campus, once per meal period. Please note, meals will reset Monday morning and any remaining unused meals from the previous week do not carry over.

*Meal Plans do not carry over from “semester to semester”, however, Rowan Bucks & Dining Dollars do carry over from fall to winter”




Wait, So what are Dining Dollars vs. Rowan Bucks?

Dining Dollars are flexible spending dollars that can be used for dining purposes ONLY. They can be used at any on campus dining location & at select Rowan Blvd. food vendors.  This ensures that you are always have dollars for food.

Rowan Bucks can be used for anything, at any on campus dining location & at over 80 vendors throughout the Glassboro community.  Such as smoothies, coffee, pens, notebooks, etc..
