Choose Your Meal Plan

Eat Well, Chargers!

The University of New Haven offers a variety of dining options on campus, from traditional college dining hall-style to order-on-demand sit-down, take-out ... and more! All students are eligible to purchase a meal plan, but students living in University-sponsored housing are required to choose a meal plan. Check out the options below based on your class year.

Meal Plan Options for First-Year Residential Students: Charger Unlimited Blue or Gold

Incoming first-year students (including freshman transfer students) who live in University-sponsored housing are given a choice of two meal plans. After receiving your housing assignment, you can choose between the two meal plan options in MyHousing. A brief description of each plan is below:

Charger Unlimited Gold provides unlimited access to board meals, plus $525 Dining Dollars. This plan will allow you to swipe your card 14 times per week for breakfast and dinner Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on the weekends, at either The Marketplace (Bartels Hall) or FöD (Westside Hall). Lunch, at any location on campus, is a la carte and you will be charged an a la carte rate. Those a la carte prices are deducted from your $525 Dining Dollars.

Charger Unlimited Blue provides unlimited access to board meals, plus $200 dining dollars. This plan will allow you to swipe your card 19 times per week for breakfast (at Marketplace or FöD), lunch (at FöD ONLY) and dinner (at Marketplace or FöD) Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on the weekends at FöD (Westside Hall) or The Marketplace (Bartels Hall). Lunch at The Marketplace or any other campus location is a la carte and you will be charged an a la carte rate, deducted from your $200 Dining Dollars.

Confused about which plan to choose? Talk to classmates and staff members in our Class of 2020 Facebook group before making your selection. Pick the wrong one?!? There is no wrong choice, but don't stress it - they cost the same amount, and at the start of each semester, there will be a two-week open enrollment period where you can try out the plans and make a change if you want to.

Deadline is August 5

DEADLINE: Resident students must select a meal plan after you receive your room assignment, but before August 5.

Commuter Student Meal Plan Options

UDine385 (Included: 385 Dining Dollars + 20 Meals) - This plan provides the student with a block of 20 meals per semester to use for breakfast and dinner at FöD or The Marketplace. The 385 Dining Dollars that come with the plan provide funds to purchase lunch, snacks, and meals at any of our campus dining locations. BONUS: 5 guest meal passes are included so you can treat a friend or family member to breakfast or dinner at The Marketplace or FöD.

UDine560 (Included: 560 Dining Dollars + 40 Meals) - This plan provides the student with a block of 40 meals per semester to use for breakfast and dinner at FöD or The Marketplace. The 560 Dining Dollars that come with the plan provide funds to purchase lunch, snacks, and meals at any of our campus dining locations. BONUS: 10 guest meal passes are included so you can treat a friend or family member to breakfast or dinner at The Marketplace or FöD.

Commuter students may choose from these meal plans at any time. Meal plans will be added to your Charger Card within 24 hours of signing up. A link to the Commuter Meal Plan sign-up form will appear here at the end of July.

Meal Plan Options for Upperclass Transfer Students

Incoming transfer students who will be living in an upperclassman residence hall / University-sponsored housing can choose any meal plan. Visit dining.newhaven.edu to check out all of the meal plan options available. You may make a selection inside MyHousing.

What do I need to do to complete Step 14?
  • Read the descriptions of the meal plans above and decide which plan will work best for you. After receiving your housing assignment in MyHousing during the summer, you will also be able to choose a meal plan in that system.
  • After you have made your meal plan selection, it is locked in until the start of the fall semester. We will have a two-week open enrollment at the start of the semester, when you will be given the option to switch your plan if you need to.
  • After you have made your meal plan selection or reviewed the information above and are ready to move on, click on the sign below to advance to Step 15.
