Students in dining hall

Meal Plans

Current dining plans for the 2023-2024 Academic Year

Students (residents and commuters) can select or change their dining plan in our online system, The Housing Director (THD). Click here to get to THD Self-Service. Your username and password are the same as they are for all other WNE systems. Once you've logged in to THD Self-Service, select Dining on the left-hand menu, make sure you are in the correct semester and then you can select a plan. For Fall 2023, students have until August 29 to change or cancel plans for the Fall semester.

In addition to the standard dining plans, students may also purchase Bear Bucks that they can use to make purchases at any dining location on campus, as well as at Domino's Pizza. Bear Bucks cannot be purchased through THD, but can be purchased through Enrollment Services.

The University hopes to reduce the stress of college by making the dining process as easy as possible. Once a student has purchased a dining plan, they have access to the dining hall from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on weekends. To learn more about the different plans we offer, please see below

Once a student has elected to participate in a dining plan, participation and subsequent billing is binding for the balance of the academic semester. There are two "open enrollment" periods at the start of each semester during which a student may change or delete his/her meal plan. Meal plan adjustments must occur by Monday, August 29, 2023 for the Fall 2023 semester.

What are Spirit Meals?

Spirit Meals are extra meals that you can use to scan a visitor or a friend without a meal plan into the dining hall so that a guest can eat with you without you having your use your Bear Bucks.


Parents and guardians can eat for free in the dining hall when accompanied by their student.
