Commuting to Campus this year? 

We have designed meal plans that will save you money on meals when you are on campus. How do they work? Commuter Meal Plans are geared specifically to give you better dining value for you dollars when you purchase a meal plan instead of paying cash to eat. Using your Student ID Card, simply open a meal account.

Why should I sign up for a plan?

  • Security of guaranteed all-you-care-to-eat meals at Galliano Dining Hall
  • You never have to worry about carrying cash
  • Opportunity to enjoy all of the same dining privileges resident students have
  • A great variety of good food and the freedom to choose

How do I sign up? 

If you would like to purchase a meal plan, just ask for a Commuter/ Faculty & Staff Meal Plan Form at the Galliano Dining Hall Cashier Stand. Or you can simply contact Sodexo Campus Dining Services at (985) 448-4513.

Where can I use my Commuter Meal Plan?

Use your all-you-care-to-eat "Block" meals in Galliano Dining Hall, located in the center of campus. You will find an abundance of delicious foods prepared fresh daily. Our staff prepares a changing menu of specialties including pizza, deli, a full grill, salad bar, and freshly made soups. Daily features include traditional home style meals, fresh cooked pasta and tasty desserts. Need flexibility because you are on the run? Try our "To Go" program, available during all meals.

Your savings will add up! Look at this example.

If you were to pay cash for 50 lunch and dinner meals at Galliano Dining Hall, based on current cash door prices, you would pay $370.50. However if you bought the 50 Block Meal Option, to pay for those same lunch and dinner meals, you would only pay $295.00 which would save you $75.50 - now that is VALUE.
