Campus Dining

Freshmen (classified as U1s with less than 30 hours of college credit when they initially apply to live on campus) will be required to have a minimum dining plan for the full academic year (or remainder of the academic year for those that apply for housing after the beginning of the fall semester).

All Corps of Cadets members are required to have a dining plan, as designated by the Office of the Commandant.

Upperclassmen and students who are not campus residents are not required to purchase a
Dining Plan, but the option is available.

All Dining Plans are loaded onto the Student ID card to make access and use easy.

Fees for the selected meal plan will be added to your Texas A&M University student fee, and are separate from housing fees. Any plan purchases or additions made after the ninth week of class cannot be charged to the student's account and must be paid via credit card. Please visit our website for official date as it may vary each semester based on the academic and billing calendars.

Students have the option to select a Dining Plan that fits their individual needs. Dining Plans are designed to be flexible for an array of lifestyles and appetites. Smaller Dining Plans are available for upperclassmen and students who live off campus. Most Dining Plans include 2 parts: First, “Meals,” which can be used at the all-you-care-to-eat dining halls, or in select retail locations as a “meal trade.” The second part of the dining plan consists of “Dining Dollars.” These declining balance dollars can be spent like cash or a debit card, and are accepted at all University Dining kiosks, coffee shops, food courts and dining centers. Each purchase is automatically deducted from the account.

When paying with Dining Dollars, patrons will enjoy a discount on the door rate at Duncan, Sbisa, and The Commons, the all-you-care-to-eat dining halls on campus.

Dining Dollars roll over from fall to spring with the purchase of a spring dining plan.

Dining Dollars are only accepted on campus, assuring parents and guardians that this money is spent only on food and beverages.

Applicable sales tax will be added at checkout.


Housing in residence halls may not be an option for graduate students except during summer school.  Graduate students are encouraged to live in our Gardens Apartments. Summer school housing information is normally available in early March. However, many graduate students request to live in our University apartments all year long.
