Students may choose between three meal plan levels. When you purchase one of the meal plan levels, you are doing so for an entire semester. You may change the level of your plan in eLiving anytime during the semester until seven days before the last day of finals. Each time you visit a dining facility operated by Penn State Housing and Food Services, simply present your Penn State ID card to the cashier to pay.
If you plan to live on campus, the meal plan is a part of the Housing and Food Service Contract, and you do not need to submit a separate contract. If you live off-campus, you can purchase a meal plan on the eLiving site and charge it directly to your Bursar Account.
