Meal plans are required of all students living in traditional residence halls. First and Second year students residing on campus are required to purchase a meal plan. Meals eaten in residence dining halls are offered on an unlimited basis, therefore meal privileges are not transferable. Residence dining halls (Donahue, Dougherty, and St. Mary’s) are considered “All You Care to Eat” if you choose the dine in option. A take out option is available as well, but there are limits on food taken out of these facilities. Please refer to the Dining Services website for more details on this option: https://www1.villanova.edu/content/villanova/services/dining.html
Failure to abide by dining regulations, including, but not limited to, disruptive or disrespectful behavior, transferring meal cards, removal of service ware, and abusing the limits of take out options will result in a range of sanctions involving suspension of dining privileges up to and including suspension from the University.
A Registered Dietitian is available to students to discuss nutritional needs, food allergies, and other special dietary requirements. Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free, and Fair Trade options are available in all dining locations. Stop by the Meal Plan Office in Dougherty Hall Room 106 or call 610-519-4170 with any questions.
