Let us do the cooking! One of the exciting things about living in the residence halls is having a meal plan. All students living in the residence halls, with the exception of upper-level LLC students, are required to have a meal plan. You select your meal plan when applying for the residence halls. Once you choose your room and board, these charges will show up on your University of Idaho bill that must be paid on or before the first day of school.

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 also choose from other tasty options like Einstein Bros Bagels, Chick-fil-a, Jamba Juice, Denny’s, Starbucks, and more! Meal plans at the University of Idaho make eating on campus easy, nutritious, and fun.

Rates are by semester for the 2016-2017 academic year.

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. - Close + $200 Vandal Dollars
