Choosing a meal plan:

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.

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.  New this year is Unlimited Access Dining Meal Plan. The Unlimited Access plan will enable students to re-enter the dining hall as many times a day as they would like, even if it is just to grab a cup of coffee and a quick snack.  The 19-meal plans offer access to the dining hall for 3 meals a day. For those that may not be on-campus on weekends, we offer the 15-meal plan, which allows students 3 meals a day Monday- Friday. Will you miss dinner due to a job or evening classes? We also offer a 10-meal plan, this is for students that will be going home on the weekend and may only need 2 meals a day in the dining hall.

The difference between the Silver and Gold packages is not in the number of meals but in the amount of Munch Money included with the plan. Munch Money can be used to purchase food and beverages at our on-campus dining locations such as the Colonels Retreat, The Grid, and The C-Store.

The Bronze Meal Plan and the Declining Balance Plan are available only to Brady residents.

To change your chosen meal plan, please log into your Nicholls its.gmail account.  Go to the first page of our website, on the left-hand side is a link for Forms and Applications.  Click on it and look for the Meal Plan Change Request Form.  Meal Plan requests are accepted until the 10th day of classes.
