Meal Plans

For latest information see

Stanford University's Residential Education program promotes the philosophy that living and learning are integrated and that formal teaching, informal learning, and personal support in residences are integral to a Stanford education. Meals play a key role in this mission of community building, leading, and learning. Therefore, residents of specially designated University residence halls (Branner, Crothers/ Crothers Memorial, Florence Moore, Lakeside, Manzanita, Murray, Ricker, Stern, Toyon, Wilbur, and Yost) are required to participate in a Stanford Dining meal plan. Stanford Dining is committed to excellence by providing meal plans that offer significant value, the highest quality, and maximum flexibility of dining across campus.

Stanford Dining serves 19 meals each week: breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on the weekends. There are three meal plans to choose from: 19 meals/week, 14 meals/week plus Meal Plan Dollars, and 10 meals/week plus Meal Plan Dollars.

Up to 50 Meal Plan Dollars are carried over into the following quarter for those enrolled in a Stanford Dining Meal Plan during the following quarter. This includes Autumn to Winter, Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, and Summer to Autumn quarters).

Meal plans are billed on a quarterly basis, and the cost is determined by the number of service days in each quarter. Meal Plan Dollars provided as part of the 14 meal/week and 10 meal/week plans also vary, depending on the number of days in each quarter.

Stanford meal plan rates are available at the Stanford Dining web site.
