We believe in the importance of sharing meals as a community.


Ave Maria University believes in the importance of sharing meals as a community and as such requires that all students residing on campus participate in the meal plan program. Commuter students are also invited to dine with residential students and may bring their lunch from home to enjoy in the cafeteria. Commuter students may also purchase the meal plan, multiple-meal cards, or pay for meals individually.


More than just a meal plan.


Food service is offered in the dining hall, located on the first floor of the Student Union Building. The meal plan includes 19 meals per week to be used in the cafeteria (3 per day Monday-Friday and 2 per day Saturday- Sunday). In addition to the meals, $50.00 worth of flex dollars per semester will be added to each meal plan. These flex dollars can be used in either the cafeteria or the Cafe.
