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 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 St. Francis of Assisi Cafeteria, and in the Gyrene Café, located on the first floor of the Bob Thomas Student Union.

There are two meal plan options:

  • 19 meals per week plus 50 flex dollars per semester

  • 14 meals per week plus 150 flex dollars per semester

Flex dollars can be used in The Coffee Shop in the Library, the Café, and various restaurant/eateries around town.
