The proposed rates are available on the Plans Options page. Rates are still pending approval from the Board of Trustees for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please note the rates are subject to change until approved in May. As soon as the rates are approved, we will update the website. Please stay tuned!
Meal plans are available for both resident students and students living off campus.
For incoming Freshman, the most popular meal plans are the Marble and the Marble Plus which both give the most access to Mines Market, our all-you-care-to-eat dining facility.
Meal plans can be changed during the first week of school by logging into Trailhead and going into the Housing Portal. After the first week of classes, meal plans cannot be changed until Spring semester.
Weekly meal plans reset on Saturdays at midnight. Weekly meal plans do not carry over from week to week.

Each meal plan comes with “Munch Money” which acts as campus dining cash and can be used at all dining locations on campus except for the student run Book & Brew in the Library.

Unused Munch Money on ALL meal plans (resident and commuter) will roll-over from Fall semester to Spring semester. Munch Money ends at the end of Spring semester and does not roll-over to Summer or Fall. 

Munch Money cannot be used to purchase non-food products in Elements, such as toiletries. Munch Money can be used for all food and beverage purchases on campus except for purchases at the Book & Brew in the Library.

Mines Dining makes every effort to accommodate a diverse array of dietary needs. We are happy to meet with you one on one.
