Meal Plans

Meal Plans

Life University requires all incoming freshmen and/or residents of the Commons to have a meal plan for their first 4 quarters. Those freshmen and Commons residents will have the default meal plan automatically added to their Student Account by the end of Week 1 and will be visible on EagleNet.

Optionally, any meal plan can be purchased by any student or employee at the Card Services Office with a credit or debit card or through the online portal at Employees can even choose to have the plan paid thru payroll deduct using this link:

The grid below outlines the 6 available plans.

Upon entering Lyceum Dining Hall, located in the Commons, students/employees will swipe their Eagle Card and select from the “All You Can Eat” offerings. You may continue to dine until you leave the dining hall. Subsequent re-entry will require an additional swipe or payment.

Swipes are intended to be used at Lyceum Dining Hall, but up to 20% of each plan can be used for a “meal exchange” in Socrates Café. A meal exchange is a pre-determined selection of menu items offered as a dining option when near central campus and is not equivalent to the “all you can eat” option available at Lyceum Dining Hall.

Dispensed beverages are “All You Can Drink” if consumed in the dining hall, while bottled beverages are not, but are available for individual purchase.

All other dining venues accept eBucks, flexBucks, credit/debit and cash as tender options.

*Each re-entry into the Dining Hall requires an additional meal swipe
*Meal exchange/equivalency allows an Eagle Card holder with a meal plan to exchange a meal in the Socrates Café only (not Plato II Go). Please be aware that 20% of your meal swipes will be used for meal exchange/equivalency. The predetermined items available for exchange will be posted in Socrates Cafe and do not include the hot bar or bottled drinks.

eBucks are loaded in conjunction with an assigned meal plan and can be used just like cash to help fill in gaps of the meal plan coverage. You can use eBucks for miscellaneous food, beverages or sundry items at: Plato II Go, Eagles Landing (Starbucks), Socrates Café and Lyceum Dining Hall.

flexBucks (formerly Eagle Dollars) can be used in conjunction with your meal plan & eBucks as an easy way to budget your purchases at many of the University venues. By adding funds to your Eagle Card online, you can present your card for payment at Plato II Go, Eagles Landing (Starbucks), Socrates Café and Lyceum Dining Hall.


Meal plans “reset” each quarter by clearing the number of meals remaining and reloading for the new quarter and can be used in Socrates Café or Lyceum Dining Hall.

eBucks are declining balance dollars that rollover each quarter when selecting a meal plan for the upcoming quarter.

flexBucks (formerly Eagle Dollars) are also a declining balance account that carries over quarter to quarter and is reloadable at any time and refundable according to the University Refund Policy.
