Notre Dame de Namur University, in conjunction with Bon Appétit, is proud to offer a comprehensive package of meal plan options designed to meet a variety of student dining habits. The following is an explanation of the options, affording you the time and information to carefully consider your meal plan selection.
These meal plans s t r e t c h your dollar. You don't have to pull money out of your wallet or purse, you get cash dollars in value and do not pay sales tax, as you do when using cash. You can purchase a snack or if you use up your meal plan for the week you can use your flex dollars to purchase your meal. Because you use your student ID card for purchases, you have the convenience of a debit card at your fingertips. With the Flex Plan, you may treat guests to a meal in the Café anytime!
Current meal plan options and prices are in the Catalog.
NOTE: All students living on campus must purchase a meal plan.
Question and Answers
Q: Will the prices for meal plan flex dollars be different than for those paying cash?
A: No, using your flex dollars is simple. The cashier will ring up the transaction just as if you are using cash, and will then swipe your card through the register deducting the amount from your flex plan account.
Q: How do I know how many flex dollars I have left?
A: Your remaining balance is reflected on the cashier's register screen at the conclusion of each transaction.
Q: If I run out of flex dollars during the semester may I purchase more?
A: Certainly, just stop by the Business Office to purchase more flex dollars. They may be purchased in blocks of $20 at any time during the semester.
Q: If I purchase a flex plan during the Fall semester and don't use up all of my flex dollars, may I utilize them during the second semester?
