Living on campus is all about convenience — and that includes not having to worry about meals. When filling out their housing contract, all residence hall students living are required to sign up for a meal plan which guarantees all-you-can-eat meals every week and a variety of quality meals to choose from. However, Nicholls knows students have different needs and has designed flexible resident meal plans.
Students have the choice of three meal plans, each with three different tiers.
- The number associated with each plan refers to the guaranteed number of meals you may eat in Vernon Galliano Dining Hall each week.
- Munch Money is the declining balance attached to each plan. Munch Money can be used at the dining hall (if you go over your number of meals per week), our other dining locations and at concessions during campus athletic events.
- For more information about meal plans and Munch Money, see our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Choosing a meal plan:
The Vernon Galliano Dining Hall serves 19 meals a week:
- 3 meals a day on Monday through Friday and
- 2 meals a day on Saturday and Sunday.
When choosing a meal plan, consider how many meals a day you like to eat and the number of days a week that you will be dining on campus. Will your class schedule, school work, extracurricular activities and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to jobs or evening classes?
The 19-meal plans offer access to the dining hall for ANY meal period. These are the ONLY plans that allow automatic access to EVERY meal served in the dining hall.
The gold and platinum meal plans provide students with more Munch Money to spend at other dining locations for themselves or to treat their friends.
The bridge plan is a mandatory meal plan for all international students and others who need holiday break meals. The holidays include Thanksgiving in the fall and spring break and Mardi Gras break in the spring semester. The Christmas break is not included.
