Meal Plans

Current dining plans for the 2024-2025 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 2024 and Spring 2025 respectively, students have until September 6, 2024 and January 31, 2025 to change or cancel dining plans, after which point no changes can be made to the plan or billing.

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

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.
