Let Dining do the cooking!

One of the exciting things about living in the residence halls is having a meal plan. Located in the first floor of Wallace Residence Center, the dining hall is convenient. From morning until night Bob's serves pizza, sandwiches and hamburgers, an extensive salad and a breakfast bar including yogurt, granola, cereal, and fast grab-and-go items.  

Dining also provides extensive gluten-free and vegetarian options.

Fresh meal options are just steps from your door! Bob’s Place is the main dining hall, offering delicious meals from morning until night. This all-you-care-to-eat format ensures that you never leave hungry. With the use of Vandal Dollars you can choose from other tasty options like the new, delicious Bob's Cheezy Grill - with a huge delicious selection of grilled cheese sandwiches. Einstein Bros Bagels, Chick-fil-a and Starbucks also take Vandal Dollars! Meal plans at the University of Idaho make eating on campus easy.

You select a meal plan during the application process. Once you choose your room and board, these charges will show up on your University of Idaho bill. Rates by semester for the 2016-2017 academic year are:

Vandal Premiere:  $2,051 -  Unlimited all day access to Dining Hall + $50 Vandal Dollars
Vandal Prestige:   $2,039 - Unlimited access to Dining Hall between 11:00 a.m. until close + $200 Vandal Dollars

Below are meal plan definitions:

  • Unlimited Meals: This allows you full access into the main Dining hall for every meal period (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) throughout an entire semester.
  • Block Meals: Block meals are a number of meals that can be used at the main Dining hall throughout a semester. One block meal equals one entry into Bob’s Dining Hall. Guest swipes can be used with block meal plans.
  • Vandal Dollars: This is an amount of money on your Vandal Card that may be used at all campus dining locations, in the residence hall vending machines and for merchandise at the VandalStore. To add even more Vandal Dollars to your account, contact the Vandal Card Office at or 208-885-9289.
