 Things to Know About the Dining Plan

UWL Dining Services offers an assortment of different dining locations to meet the variety of needs and desires of the campus community. Both University Centers and Chartwells are excited about what we have to offer to the campus community.  

UWL offers a variety of Dining Plan options for members of the University community. The dining plans provide exceptional value for both residential and off campus members of the University community. Not only does the dining plan program provide you with a wide variety of fresh meals to choose from all day long, but they offer the convenience of no clean up or shopping for food.  

All students living in the Residence Halls are required to participate in the dining plan. This is a requirement of the Board of Regents, and is an integral part of the student's college experience. Students can choose from the different Eagle plans (All Access) or The Eaglet plan (14 meals per week). Failure to sign up will result in automatic enrollment in The Eagle dining plan. Students living in Reuter Hall may sign up for the On Campus Talon Plan instead of one of the other on campus plans.

  • Students registered for a dining plan must present their Eagle ID prior to entering the serving areas. 
  • Meals may also be purchased on a cash basis at the dining locations. 
  • ID's are not transferable, misused ID's will be confiscated.
  • The Dining plan week for the Eaglet plan begins on Friday with breakfast and ends at 11:59 pm on Thursday. The Eaglet plan resets every Friday morning to 14 meals, unused meals do not carry over to the next week
    • The Eaglet plan is 14 meals total for the week, no matter which location they are being used.
    • Unused meals from The Eaglet do not transfer over from week to week.
  • Any Maroon Dollars included with your dining plan that are remaining at the end of the fall semester will not transfer to the next semester. All maroon dollar funds need to be spent by the last day of the semester. The Maroon Dollars are non-refundable.
  • Maroon Dollars can only be redeemed in a dining or coffee location.
  • Residential dining plans (Eaglet, Eagle, Big Eagle, Mega Eagle) can be used anywhere in Whitney Center. One meal per day can be used at either Sono (7:30 am – 8:00 pm, Monday – Friday) or at The Cellar (6:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Monday – Friday) in the Student Union.
  • Block meals are allowed at all dining locations.
  • Off Campus Block meals expire at the end of summer semester. Refer to calendar: http://catalog.uwlax.edu/undergraduate/aboutuwlax/academiccalendar/
  • On Campus Block meals expire at the end of each semester.
