For the 2012–2013 academic year; first-year Unity College students are required to have the 19 Meal Plan. Returning residence hall students, with the exception of Cottage and TerraHaus residents, MUST select a meal plan, but have the option of the 19 or 13 Meal Plan. Cottage and TerraHaus residents are not required to buy a meal plan, but may choose the 19, 13, or Bundle Meal Plan if they desire.
Students with meal plans will have their ID cards swiped by a cashier at each meal, which deducts the meal from their card.
19 Meal Plan
This is a worry-free plan that allows students to eat all 19 meals served each week: breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday. The plan has proven popular because students are assured access to nutritious meals. This is also the most economical plan, providing 90 more meals each semester than the 13 Meal Plan, at a total cost of $1,742 per semester. Unused meals do not roll over from week to week.
This Plan comes with $25 in Meal Plan Dollars, which can be used in our Student Center retail operation, or to purchase meals for guests. Meal Plan Dollars will be forfeited at the end of the academic year.
13 Meal Plan
Students may eat any 13 of the 19 meals served each week. This is a good choice if you tend to spend your weekends off campus. Cost is $1,742 per semester. Unused meals do not roll over from week to week.
This plan comes with $100 in Meal Plan Dollars, which can be used in our Student Center, or to purchase meals for guests. Meal Plan Dollars will be forfeited at the end of the academic year.
Bundle Meal Plan
This is a new meal plan for off-campus students, as well as residents of the Cottages and TerraHaus. It offers 60 swipes in either the Student Center or the Dining Commons, at a cost of $400 per semester. All meals must be used by the end of each semester. Meal Plan Dollars will be forfeited at the end of the academic year.
Unity Dollars are an option available to all Unity College students. Whether you live on campus or are a commuter, whether you have one of the meal plans or not, with Unity Dollars you don’t have to carry cash on campus. You can use your Unity Dollars in the dining hall, student center, and bookstore as well as participating local dining establishments like Unity House of Pizza and Spanky's Pizza. The balance of Unity Dollars will roll over from semester to semester.
Unity Dollars are pre-purchased with cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) in increments of $20.00 or more, and put on your student ID. You can add funds to your Unity Dollars account in-person at the business office or using the Unity Dollars OneWeb system online. Funds added online are immediately available.
Unity Dollars will stay on your ID Card throughout your college career. ONLY after you graduate, transfer, or withdraw from Unity College, your remaining Unity Dollars balance will be transferred to your student account. Learn more about Unity Dollars.
Where to Eat
The dining commons serves meals when the College is in session. It is an all-you-can-eat facility for students, faculty, and staff. Each time a meal-plan student eats at the dining commons, their ID card is swiped by a cashier and a meal is deducted from their card.
Cash, Meal Plan Dollars, and Unity Dollars may also be used here. For more information on cost of meals, please email Sandy Donahue.
Students may not remove cups, plates, bowls, or flatware from either facility. While students may eat all they want while in the cafeteria during a meal, take-aways are limited to a beverage in their own cup, and/or a piece of fruit or a cookie.
Daily hours are posted on the Wyman Commons web page, as well as on the door of the facility.
The student center offers a cooked-to-order menu as well as sundries in a retail setting. There are games and other activities available at this facility, including live entertainment events. Cash, Meal Plan Dollars, or Unity Dollars are all accepted here.
For those with meal plans, meal equivalencies may also be used here Monday through Friday, after Wyman Commons has closed for lunch and dinner.
Daily hours are posted on the Student Center web page, as well as on the door of the facility.
