Notice: First-year Freshmen are required to take the carte blanche meal plan the entire year.

14-meal plan

This meal plan offers 14-meals per week (Monday-Sunday), including late night meals.  Three guests (not including other Malone students) are allowed per semester at no extra cost.This meal plan also includes a limited amount of Flex Dollars. Meals may not be carried forward into future weeks.

10-meal plan

Education majors scheduled to student teach, nursing majors involved in nursing clinical rotations, or students whose work schedules require them to miss a number of scheduled meals may petition the Office of Student Development for the 10-meal plan. Only students with special circumstances as determined by the Vice President for Student Development or Associate Dean of Community Life will be given consideration. Students will be notified in writing if approved for this meal plan and billed at a reduced rate.   

Additional notes regarding meal plans:

  • If you have a class or work conflict, you are able to request a box lunch from the Food Service Resident Director.

Commuter Meal Plans

Students who live off-campus are welcome to purchase one of the above meal plans. They also may purchase a Block 75 meal plan. With the Block 75 plan, a limited amount of Flex Dollars is included; but, no guest passes are available.
