Who is required to purchase a meal plan?
Mississippi State University, who is committed to providing its students with a comprehensive educational experience, has determined that for most first year students, on-campus dining has numerous educational, social, and dietary benefits. In recognition of the value of the living-learning experience, the University requires First Year Freshmen to have an on-campus Meal thus being the most convenient for students who live on campus.
What meal plans are available to me?
Freshmen are able to choose between the Ultimate, Gold, and Silver Meal Plans.
Freshmen who pledge a Fraternity/Sorority are able to choose between Ultimate, Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Greek.
Upperclassmen are eligible to choose any of the seven Meal Plans we offer: Ultimate, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Greek, Campus Connector, or Flex Plan.
What are the benefits of having a meal plan?
Bottom line: it saves you money. It opens up the door to VARIETY. It enables you to set yourself a budget that cannot be over-drafted. You do not have to lose your parking spot to leave campus for lunch, nor do you have dirty dishes to clean. The list goes on and on…
If you would like to talk to someone from the MSU Dining Office to help you decide which Meal Plan best fits your lifestyle and schedule, please stop by or call 662-325-7120 during normal business hours; we’ll be glad to help!
How do I sign up for a meal plan?
Freshmen are automatically enrolled in the Ultimate Meal Plan when they sign up for Housing because it is the most convenient for campus residents. Upperclassmen may sign up online at www.msstatedining.com
or visit the MSU Dining Office located between Subway and Moe’s Southwest Grill. Please note: Meal Plans are added manually to each student's account. Please allow at least 1 business day for your Meal Plan to be ready to use.
Is the Greek Meal Plan only for sorority/fraternity students?
Absolutely not! While the Greek Meal Plan is available to Freshmen who pledge a Greek organization, any Upperclassman has the option of choosing this plan. For example, this is a great plan for a commuter student who doesn’t live on campus but is on campus throughout the week. It’s more convenient to grab a meal on campus between classes than to have to walk across campus to your car, leave campus for lunch, and have to find a place to park all over again when you get back.
