Overview

Top five reasons to purchase a dining plan:

  1. Save Money – When you’re on campus the whole day, you’re bound to get hungry. Join us for lunch at our pay-one-price dining halls or opt for a snack at our a la carte locations. Because dining plans are tax-free, you’ll save money whenever you eat on campus.
  2. Save Time – Dining plans are convenient, saving you time on campus. You won’t need to prep, clean, or remember to pack your lunch when you dine with BASC!
  3. Socialize – College isn’t just a time for studying; enjoying meals together with friends strengthens bonds with your classmates and makes you feel part of the community. Friends that eat together, stay together.
  4. Put Extra Financial Aid to Good Use – Apply dining plan charges to your student bill and use financial aid to help cover your expenses (if available).
  5. Enjoy Delicious Food – BASC’s dining program is award-winning and nationally recognized. See what the buzz is about!

Plan prices below are per semester for the 2024-2025 academic year. Purchase one or more of the options below.

Point Plans

Points serve as a debit account accessed via your ID card or virtual BASC Pass that can be used to make food purchases on campus. Spending Points instead of cash or credit saves 8% sales tax. Open an account with as little as 25 Points and add as often as you like. For even more value, consider making a larger purchase of Points and we’ll throw in an added incentive!

Purchase 250 Points and we’ll throw in 10 Bonus Points – $250

Includes 260 in Points to use in any dining location during the semester.

Bonus Points will not exceed a maximum of 10 per deposit and are limited to one deposit per day.

Optional Point purchases, including Bonus Points, are non-refundable. Only purchase what you’ll use in a semester. Points expire at the end of each semester and do NOT roll over to the following semester. Bonus Points are earned during special promotions and offers.

Not sure how many Points to purchase? Refer to the worksheet below to help you determine the number of Points you may need. The pricing shown is for meals in our dining halls for the 2024-2025 academic year. Other dining locations charge a la carte, however, for planning purposes, these values are good estimates for meal prices at those locations as well.

Block Plans

Townhome and commuter residents may select any Block Plan. These plans provide a set number of meals that can be used during the entire semester. Meals can be used at Harrison Dining Hall, Brockway Express Dining Hall, and select meal combos at The Square, or for You Pick 3 to-go meals at The Nest. These plans also include Points that can be used at any dining location. Both Meals and Points expire at the end of the semester.

25 Meal Block plus 125 Points—$540

This block plan provides 25 trips to the dining hall, select meal combos at The Square, or You Pick 3 meals at The Nest each semester plus 125 Points to use at any dining location during the semester.

15 Meal Block plus 50 Points—$300

This block plan provides 15 trips to the dining halls, select meal combos at The Square, or You Pick 3 meals at The Nest each semester plus 50 Points to use at any dining location during the semester.

Meal Plans

In addition to Point and Block Plans, we are pleased to offer townhome and commuter residents a choice of any of our resident dining plans. These plans are great because the dining hall meals are all-you-care-to-eat for dine-in, and there is little budgeting involved.

To-go options are available at all locations (except Harrison Dining Hall) using Points. Students on the Any Plans can also use a meal swipe from The Nest’s You Pick 3 program and select combos from The Square. For even more flexibility, consider adding additional Points to these base plans. 

Each dining plan also comes with three Any Time Meals for the semester which can be used to bring a guest to the dining hall or for You Pick 3 meals at The Nest, or for select meal combos at The Square.

Select Your Plan

Log in to select your plan for the 2025 academic year. When a student adds Points and/or selects a Meal plan via their student bill in the fall semester, that same amount/plan will be added in the spring semester, unless otherwise requested. Townhome and commuter students need to reselect their Points and/or Meal plan each fall at the start of the academic year. New resident students will be defaulted to the Any 19 Plan. Returning resident students will be defaulted to their previous semester plan.

Only one change to a dining plan can be made during the first two weeks of the semester. Friday, September 6, 2024 is the last day to make meal plan changes for the fall semester.
