2018-19 Flexible Dining Options

Craving waffles at 3 PM?

We’ve got you covered.

Introducing new flexible dining options at JBU!
Beginning fall 2018 the Kresge Dining Hall will be open extended hours with access to some food stations available all day. Meal plan pricing will be based on scans and a student may use as many scans as they want during the day to access Kresge. Want a waffle and fresh fruit at 3 p.m.? Just scan in, assemble a snack and have a mid-day study session while refueling. Between meal times students can enjoy cereal, waffles, bagels, toast, English muffins, fresh fruit, salad bar, hummus station, soup, greens, grains and beans station, and the beverage station. 

Terms to Know
