Students living in college-owned housing must select a dining plan as part of the housing contract. First year resident students may select from the 19- or 14- meal board plan. Returning resident students who have lived in college-owned housing for two full semesters choose from a 19-, 14-, or 10- meal board plan.

Commuter and students living off-campus are not required to have a dining plan, but have the option of selecting any of our plans (Board plans, block plans, or declining balance plans) to best meet their dining needs.

You are able to switch your dining plan between semesters or just prior to the start of each semester. Plan changes must be made during the first week of the semester and will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

Your card can be used in any of the dining units, vending machines, and in the student-operated restaurant, Le Jeune Chef (dining dollar only). The money in your dining plan account can ONLY be used to purchase food in our dining units and all items in our convenience stores. For more information on how to use your board meals, please visit our dining plan page.

If you lose your card, immediately report your card lost or found through GET. Next, go to the ITS Help Desk/ID Center (LEC, Rm.1032) to obtain a new card

No, that money has been set aside strictly for food or those items in our convenience stores, or vending machines across campus.

Yes. If you live off-campus, the best way to do this is through the Student Portal under Optional Charges. This allows us to apply your financial aid to the Dining Plan and it automatically puts any Dining Plan charges on your tuition bill. We also accept Dining Plan applications in our office (LEC/A137) during the first two weeks of classes.

If you live on-campus, your financial aid will be applied with your room and board, and you do not have to request an optional charge.

This depends on which dining service area you are patronizing. The average cost for hot entrees at CC Commons or the Keystone Dining Room ranges from $5.75 - $7.75. Most meals are a la carte style, so costs vary. A dinner buffet meal at Capitol Eatery is $12.

Keystone Dining Room & Capitol Eatery have a salad bar, veggie burgers, veggie hoagies, and several hot vegetarian entrees such as baked ziti, vegetable stir fry, macaroni and cheese, and soup. Other dining service areas also have salads, soups and vegetarian alternatives.

Mobile and online ordering is easy at Penn College with GET. Users also are able to check dining account balances, add funds, and repot lost/found cards.
