Meal Plan/Dining Services

Campus resident meal plans will be automatically activated once the semester begins. You can use your meal plan with declining balance at UL Lafayette Dining Services facilities on campus. For more meal plan information visit UL Lafayette Dining Services' website. If your meal plan is not working or you need to change your plan, please go to the Housing department located in Buchanan Hall, 2nd floor.

Commuter students and faculty/staff can purchase meal plans online through the StarRez portal at Ulink.
