Meal Plan Benefits

Brandeis University students have been gauged on what they wanted to see in their meal plan program.

We are excited to introduce a variety of meal plan options to select from and highlight some of the key benefits for students, staff, & faculty.

All Access, All The Time

Students can look forward to “All Access Meal Plans.” All Access meal plans allow you to enjoy UNLIMITED ACCESS to Usdan Kitchen, Farm Table at Sherman & Kosher Table at Sherman. With All Access meal plans, there are no longer any meal period restrictions, meaning that you can enter our residential dining locations as often as you want throughout the day during hours of operation. All Access Meal Plans also come with weekly meal exchanges and points per semester that can be used throughout our dining locations.

More Meal Exchange Options

Based on student feedback, students can now enjoy new Meal Exchange options at Einstein Bros. Bagels & Starbucks in Farber Library. Meal Exchanges are set retail meals typically consisting of an entrée, side & drink at select locations. There are now even more Meal Exchange options for students to enjoy.

Running Low On Points?

You will now be able to add points to your meal plan. Points can be added to most meal plans in $50 increments at any time during the semester. This is great for anyone who likes to shop in The Hoot for snacks and school supplies or if you are looking to grab a delicious donut at Dunkin. Points will also roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester, which adds even more value to points.

Treat Your Guests To A Meal

For students who have selected “Traditional Residents” or “Campus Apartment Residents” meal plans, you will receive 5 Guest Swipes per semester. Whether it is your family or friends coming to visit, treat your guests to a meal in either of our residential dining halls. Don’t forget that guest swipes can be donated to the “Swipe Out Hunger” meal campaign during the semester.
