All students living on campus are required to have a meal plan. The Residential Meal Plan options are designed to meet the needs of any active college student. Students have a choice of three meal plans, each with three different tiers. These provide a guaranteed number of meals per week.
There are three tiers of meal plans from which to choose. The 19 meals plan offers access to the cafeteria for any meal period. These are the ONLY plans that allow automatic access to EVERY meal served in the dining hall. The 15 meals plan allow the student to eat any fifteen meals during the course of a week, and the 10 meals plan allow for only ten meals each week. The 10 and 15 meal plans do not include meals on weekends (Friday dinner- Sunday brunch).
The Silver, Gold, and Platinum meal plans all offer the same tiers of meals per week. The plans differ in the amount of Munch Money available. Munch Money is declining balance funds that are subtracted from your Munch Money account each time you select that payment option. The Munch Money value associated with the meal plan you choose is entered on your Colonel Card. Each time you make a Munch Money purchase, the amount of the purchase will be deducted from your declining balance. Munch Money may be used in any Campus Dining facility. Any balance remaining at the end of the semester does not carry over to the following semester.
The Bronze Meal Plan and the Declining Balance Plan are available only to Brady residents.
Nicholls Dining offers meal plan options to allow students flexibility in their dining choices and to meet a variety of budgets.

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
