All Access Meal Plans
The ALL ACCESS portion of the All Access Meal Plans can be used for unlimited visits to our “all-you-care-to-eat” facilities: Upstairs McEwen, Upstairs Colonnades and Lakeside Dining Hall. Multiple visits may be made throughout the day for meals, snacks or just to sit with friends.
The MEAL EXCHANGE portion of the All Access + 14 and All Access + 7 meal plans may be used at any Elon Dining retail location to purchase a predetermined retail combo meal, called a Meal Exchange. A typical Meal Exchange includes an entrée, one side, and a fountain drink or filtered water. The All Access + 14 meal plan includes 14 Meal Exchanges per week and the All Access +7 meal plan includes 7 Meal Exchanges per week. Students on the All Access + 14 and All Access + 7 meal plans will receive their allotment of Meal Exchanges on Wednesday morning. Unused Meal Exchanges do not rollover and will expire Tuesday night. Meal Exchanges are not included with the All Access Basic plan.
The GUEST MEAL portion of the All Access Meal Plans can be used to treat a guest to a meal at any Elon Dining facility. Or use a guest meal on yourself if you run out of your weekly Meal Exchanges!
The MEAL DOLLARS associated with each plan can be used at any Elon Dining facility working on the same principle as a debit card. Each time you make a purchase, the total is subtracted from the balance in your account. They are convenient to use in between meals and at our residential restaurants or retail locations.
Block Meal Plans^
The BLOCK MEAL portion of the 300 Block and 200 Block plans can be used at any “all-you-care-to-eat” dining hall or any campus retail location. A typical Meal Exchange combo meal includes an entrée, one side, and a fountain drink or filtered water.
Block Meal Plans are annual contracts. Students pay for half of the block plan in the fall and the remaining half in the spring. Students will receive one-half of their Block Meal in the fall and the remaining half in the spring. Block Meals carry over from Fall semester to Winter term and Winter term to Spring semester with the renewal or upgrade of a Block plan.
