All About Meal Plans

Your meal plan is your all-access pass to dining on campus.  Dining on campus give you the convenience of eating what and when you want, without leaving campus and losing your parking spot, shopping, or doing dishes. Coming in fall 2022 - we're making dining on campus even more convenient with Kiwibot robot delivery.   Your available meal plan options depend on your housing situation on campus. If you live on campus, you are required to have a meal plan. 

Residences without Kitchens - If you live in a dorm or suite without a kitchen, you have several options.
  • The default plan is the Hound Unlimited 5 Day Plan. The Hound Unlimited offers Unlimited meal swipes Sunday dinner - Friday lunch, and Dining Dollars for the weekend. This plan works great if you are frequently away on weekends or prefer to dine out or at the B&G on the weekends.
  • Your other option at the same price is the Hound 200 plan. The Hound 200 plan offers 200 meal swipes to be used anytime during the semester, as well as Dining Dollars.
  • You do have the option to upgrade to Gold Unlimited, which is Unlimited swipes 7 days per week. This plan works well if you would like the flexibility of being able to come and go in The Star and Clewell.
Residences with Kitchens - if you live in a dorm or suite with a kitchen, you have other options as well:
  • You will still initially default to the Hound Unlimited 5 Day plan. 
  • You have the option to choose the Silver or Bronze plan with a kitchen. The Silver plan has more meal swipes and fewer Dining Dollars than the Bronze plan, so it's best for students who prefer to eat in The Star or Clewell. The Bronze plan has more Dining Dollars and is great for a student that cooks occasionally and likes to grab food from Clewell Convenience, the B&G or DeLight's Café.
  • You can always upgrade to the Hound 200 plan, or the Gold Unlimited plan.
  • Note that you can change meal plans until the end of the first week of classes. See our FAQ for instructions on changing your plan.
Commuters - you are not required to have a meal plan but you may find it convenient and economical. Here are your options:
  • You can choose any of our three Commuter meal plans. They have fewer meal swipes and some Dining Dollars, too. With a commuter meal plan, you can save money on our door rate at The Star or Clewell.
  • You can choose any of our Resident student meal plans if you will be on campus more frequently. 
  • You can add Hound Bucks, which earn you up to 20% bonus of free dollars, and they don't expire until you leave or graduate.
See more resources below, including meal plan comparisons and frequently asked questions.

All Undergraduate Resident students are required to have a meal plan and default to the Hound Unlimited 5-day Plan.  The meal plan options available to you depend on what type of housing you select. 

Tips for First Year Students:

  • Your default meal plan does not include meal swipes on weekends. You can use the Dining Dollars tied to your plan in every dining location including on weekends, but you will pay $7.50 for breakfast, $12.25 for lunch and $14 for dinner in The Star or Clewell. If you are a student not involved in athletics or weekend activities, consider switching your meal plan to the Hound 200, or upgrading to the Gold Unlimited. Instructions for changing your meal plan are listed on our FAQ page.
  • Unlimited meal plans are easy to use for those new to budgeting meal swipes - there's no limit to how many times you come in during a day/week.

Residences without Kitchens - 
If you live in a dorm or suite without a kitchen, you have several options.

  • The default plan is the Hound Unlimited 5 Day Plan. The Hound Unlimited offers Unlimited meal swipes Sunday dinner - Friday lunch, and Dining Dollars for the weekend. This plan works great if you don't use meal swipes on weekends, travel for athetics or work on the weekends, or prefer to dine out or at the B&G on Friday nights or Saturdays.  You can still use your Dining Dollars at every dining location, including on weekends, but you will pay $7.50 for breakfast, $12.25 for lunch and $14 for dinner in Dining Dollars at The Star or Clewell.
  • Your other option at the same price is the Hound 200 plan. The Hound 200 plan offers 200 meal swipes to be used anytime during the semester, as well as Dining Dollars.
  • You do have the option to upgrade to Gold Unlimited, which is Unlimited swipes 7 days per week. This plan works well if you would like the flexibility of being able to come and go in The Star and Clewell.

Meal plans are not required for commuters, however, we think that one of the best ways to build community on campus is to eat together!  Purchasing a commuter meal plan allows you to spend time with your friends that live on campus, while saving time and enjoying the convenience of grabbing something to eat without leaving campus. We also save you the burden of making your own food and doing dishes, while accommodating various dietary needs, food allergies and more.

We offer three commuter-specific meal plans that have fewer meal swipes and Dining Dollars (because you're not on campus quite as often, usually) which give you the flexibility of dining in all of our locations. You can also opt into a Resident student meal plan if you would like. However, if you find yourself grabbing food to go from the B&G, DeLight's Café, or Clewell Convenience more often than The Star or Clewell, you may want to consider adding Hound Bucks to your account instead. See the Hound Bucks tab below for more details.
 
Commuter A - $1018/per semester
75 Meals and $125.00 Dining Dollars This plan provides you with 75 block meals (approximately 5 meals per week) and $125 dining dollars to use at retail locations (B&G, DeLight's Café and Clewell Convenience) throughout the semester.

Commuter B - $698/per semester
50 Meals and $95.00 Dining Dollars This plan provides you with 50 block meals (approximately 3 meals per week) and $95 dining dollars to use at retail locations (B&G, DeLight's Café and Clewell Convenience) throughout the semester.

Commuter C - $398/per semester
25 Meals and $75.00 Dining Dollars This plan provides you with 25 meals and $75 dining dollars. This plan provides about 2 meals per week throughout the semester. This plan is great for the commuter student that wants to try out the convenience of a meal plan, or a commuter that's not on campus very often.

Rechargeable 10 Block - $170/per semester
10 meals and $40 Dining Dollars. Our Rechargeable 10 meal plan is available as an add on to any previously-purchased meal plan when it is exhausted.




Welcome, Grad students! Whether you live on or off campus, you have the option to participate in any of our meal plans, whether they're for resident students or for Commuter students. How to decide? It really depends on your time, how often you're on campus, and what your schedule is.

If you don't want to deal with cooking or dirty dishes, consider opting into one of our meal plans for Resident students. You'll be able to dine in The Star or Clewell, our all-you-care-to-eat student restaurants, or, use Dining Dollars to grab a bite in The B&G or a coffee in DeLight's Café.  Opt into our Green Container program and take food home in a reusable container that we wash for you!

Or, if you want the occasional option to dine in our student restaurants or retail locations, consider a smaller Commuter meal plan. With fewer meals and Dining Dollars to use, it'll be there when you need it without costing a lot of money.  Keep in mind that the meal "swipes" in a Residential or Commuter meal plan expire at the end of each semester, and that Dining Dollars attached to a meal plan expire at the end of Spring semester.

Alternatively, add Hound Bucks to your account. They are loaded on your student ID for the ultimate in convenience, can be used in any dining location, and don't expire until you leave or graduate. They can also be used over the Summer semester. The best part about Hound Bucks is that when you load them on your account, you receive a bonus of free dollars. When you load $1 - $199, you receive an automatic 10% bonus of free dollars. When you add $200 or more, you receive that 10% bonus immediately, then an additional 10% bonus in 1-3 business days - that's 20% free! Since they never expire, you can maximize your deposit by adding $200 or more each time you reload.

If you have any questions about meal plans and how they work, see our FAQ or email dining@moravian.edu

Faculty and Staff can enjoy the benefits of dining on campus, too! No need to leave, lose your parking spot or precious time leaving campus and then returning. A Faculty & Staff meal plan is just $7.50 per meal! Dine with all-you-care-to-eat options at our campus restaurants The Star and Clewell.

Don't forget - you can always add on Hound Bucks for added convenience and dine in our retail locations, too, while receiving a 10% bonus for adding $0-199, and 20% bonus of free dollars for adding over $200. Faculty and Staff Hound Bucks also never expire! Use them year-round.

Faculty/Staff Plan

Lunch & Dinner Plan - Faculty & Staff 2021-2022

Price: $150.00

Dining Dollars are a declining-balance account accepted in all Dining locations as payment. They're included in every meal plan and designed to give students flexibility when it comes to choosing meals. Dine most frequently in our Campus Restaurants, but you can supplement your meals there with meals and snacks from our retail locations with your Dining Dollars.  Dining Dollars that are part of your meal plan will roll over from Fall to Spring Semester, but will then expire at the end of the academic year.

Hound Bucks (formerly Additional Dining Dollars) are part of a declining balance account independent of a meal plan. They are now available online, at any time, so even if you don't have a meal plan, students, staff and faculty can grab some. And when you buy Hound Bucks online, you'll receive bonus dollars, free: 10% bonus when you add $20 - $199 Dining Dollars and 20% more when you buy more than $200 in Hound Bucks. Hound Bucks stay with you in your account until your balance is $0 or until you leave Moravian University (for any reason) - the dollars will be forfeited upon your departure.
