Meal plans make dining on campus convenient and more affordable. Whether you live on campus, are a commuter student, Faculty or Staff, we offer a variety of meal plan options to meet your needs. Don't miss out on the high quality, chef-created meals served in our locations throughout campus.

The University of Maine requires all residential students, except those residing in DTAV or Patch, to purchase a meal plan to ensure that our students are eating, living, and learning in healthful ways. 

Unlimited meal plans are designed for resident students to enjoy the convenience of swiping in and out of the dining halls as frequently as needed, with no worrying about running out of swipes. Our two residential dining halls (Hilltop Dining and York Dining) offer hours of operation 7 days a week, a variety of menu choices, and late night service. Stop in for a full meal, a snack, or a cup of coffee.

Unlimited meal plans are required of all first and second-year students living on campus, except those living in DTAV or Patch. Upper-class resident students are also welcome to select an unlimited plan.

NEW for the 2024 - 2025 year, all unlimited plan holders will receive a Kiwibot bottomless subscription with their meal plans.

Commuter meal plans are designed for those living in apartments (DTAV, Patch, or off campus) that have kitchen spaces and can supplement meals with their own cooking. They offer a smaller amount of meal swipes for students that are looking for a break from cooking or want to stop in to dine with the convenience of staying on campus. The Meal Plan Dollars are frequently used to pick up items at Hilltop Market and the Bear’s Den. Many UMaine faculty and staff purchase commuter meal plans because of the extensive options available in our dining halls.

Commuter Meal Plans are available only to DTAV and Patch Hall residents, commuter students, off-campus graduate students, faculty, and staff. Any student or employee may choose to purchase an Unlimited Meal Plan. Commuter students, faculty and staff may also add Dining Funds to their account. Faculty and staff, please contact the MaineCard Service Center  to set up a Commuter Meal Plan.

Meal exchanges are offered at the Bear's Den during the academic year, weekdays from 2pm - 6pm, to allow our Unlimited Meal Plan holders extra flexibility in their dining. Unlimited Meal Plan holders may use up to two exchanges per week and only one per day. 

What's Included

Each participating venue offers a selection of entrées available for Meal Exchange. Choose 1 entrée, then select 1 side and 1 beverage from the designated meal exchange list. View the attached flyer for more details or the posted flyer at the entrance to the Bear's Den for more specific information. (*Will be updated and posted for Fall 2024)

Additional items (or items not listed on the signage as included in the meal exchange program) are available for purchase separately.

To-Go Meals are offered to meal plan holders as indicated in the contract. These meals are intended to be consumed outside of the dining halls.

To redeem a to-go meal:

Ask for a to-go meal when you check in with the cashier at the dining hall. The cashier can also give you the balance of to-go meals on your account.

How It Works: The cashier will give you a to-go container. Choose the items you would like to take with you for your meal and put them in the container. Shut the container and take your meal to go!

Questions? Ask to speak with a manager on duty.
