All Huntingdon College board plans cost the same. The difference in the plans is the number of meals offered in Julia Walker Russell Dining Hall (“The DH”) versus “flex” points that can be used in The Coffee House or to purchase extra meals in the DH.
There are three board plans for campus residents:
- The 19 “Transferability” Meal Plan:19 meals per week in the dining hall, plus $50 to spend in The Coffee House or to purchase extra meals in the DH.
- The 15 “Flex” Meal Plan: 15 of the 19 meals served per week in the dining hall, plus $150 to spend in The Coffee House or to purchase extra meals in the DH. This is the default board plan.
- The 10 “Flex” Meal Plan: 10 of the 19 meals served per week in the dining hall, plus $200 to spend in The Coffee House or to purchase extra meals in the DH.
During the first week of classes each semester you may choose to change your board plan. After the end of the first week of classes, you will remain with either the default plan or the plan you have chosen until the end of the semester.
The 19 meals served in the dining hall each week include breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday and on In-Service Days. The board charges include 10% state, county, and city sales tax on food. Dining services and residence halls are closed during holidays.
You may purchase additional dollars to be added to your account, accessed through your Student ID/swipe card, to allow for more purchases in the dining hall or The Coffee House. Some students find that purchasing items such as deodorant, toothpaste, and frozen foods on campus is more cost-effective than driving to the local Walmart. You may want to add a little more money to your account in order to allow for this convenience.
Commuter Meal Plan
Commuter students may purchase a 25-meal plan that includes $50 in flex-points for $175.
