Resident Meal Plans

Residents of Marathon Hall must choose one of three meal plans available to them. A housing contract will not be issued without a meal plan.

  • Meals are assigned to the purchasing resident and are non-transferable to another person.
  • A week of meals begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday. Missed meals in any week are not transferable to another week.
  • Meal plan choices include 10, 14 or 19 meals per week. Meal plans begin with the dinner meal of the day before classes for the Fall and Spring semesters.
  • On the last day of classes prior to a holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter) or an extended break, the last meal served in the dining room is lunch. Meals will resume with breakfast on the first day of classes following each of the vacation periods listed above.
  • All campus rules and regulations apply to the Food Service/Dining Room area.

Residents are required to present their UW Colleges UCard for all meals.

Meal Plan Changes

Residents may make one meal plan change per semester. Meal plan changes must be made by September 15 of the Fall semester and by February 1 of the Spring semester. Any changes to the housing contract are pro-rated from the date of the change. Meal plan changes must be made in the Office of Residence Life located in Marathon Hall.

Bag Lunches

There may be times when a resident cannot make the meals times as posted. For example, NTC Residents may find it difficult to return to the University for lunch because of a class scheduling conflict. Bag lunches are available upon request with a 24 hour advance notice.
