Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to purchase a meal plan?

Meal plans are mandatory for students residing in any Residence Hall on campus.  Students living in off-campus housing may also purchase a meal plan, but are not required to do so. There are two plans to choose from; the Anytime Plan and the Loyalty 50 Plan.  

The Anytime plan is designed for those that will eat most of their meals on campus. This plan is provides unlimited access to the three traditional dining halls located at: Cobeen, McCormick and Straz, and eligible for meal equivalents at the Brew, Marquette Place, Erbert & Gerbert's, Mashuda Diner and Schroeder. 

The Loyalty 50 plan is perfect for students that will eat one meal a day or less on campus. So if your Golden Eagle likes to cook, but wants to add a little variety to their meals, or sometimes just doesn't have time for meal planning and preparation, then the Loyalty 50 is perfect for you. A maximum of two Loyalty 50 plans can purchased in a semester. The plans do not expire until the end of the school year in May.

What is Marquette Cash?

Marquette Cash is the campus debit plan that can be used for purchases in all dining services locations.  Monies are loaded onto the student's account.  This can be done at a campus kiosk or by visiting HERE   Marquette Cash can be easily accessed by students through their Student ID.
