Dining

2022-2023 Dining Information

We are pleased to announce our fresh lineup of meal plans, offering residents value and various dining options. With “Meal Exchange,” residents are able to exchange a number of meals from our dining center for meals at other Idaho Eats dining venues. This provides more value, convenience and ease for residents to enjoy dining across the entire campus.

The name says it all. Unlimited meals every week in our residential dining center, The Eatery.

  • Four meal exchanges per week.

Vandal Fuel - 8 Meals per week and 425 Dining Dollars ($1,900/semester)

The flexibility of the Social Plate is perfect for the busy resident whose daily schedule takes them all across campus.

Meal Exchange

The meal exchange program allows you to use a select number of meal swipes on your meal plan at various campus locations. The meal will be deducted from your total number of meals, rather than from your Dining Dollar balance, based on how many meal exchanges come with your plan. (For instance, there are 32 meal exchanges included on the Fuel Plate meal plan, meaning that 32 of the plan’s total 160 meals may be redeemed as meal exchanges). All meal exchanges include an entrée, side and drink. Meal exchanges may be used only once per meal period and expire at the end of each semester.

Students can use their meal exchanges at True Burger, Qdoba, Einstein's, Pom & Honey and the Market.

Unlimited Meals

Enter The Eatery as many times as you would like throughout the day.

Meals

A specific number of meals that can be used at The Eatery. One meal swipe equals one entry into The Eatery dining hall for an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal.

Dining Dollars

With the swipe of your VandalCard, you can conveniently enjoy food across campus. Dining Dollars provide the flexibility to eat at a variety of campus dining and market locations, including Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Qdoba!

Note: Unused dining dollars will roll over from fall to spring semester if the student purchases a residential meal plan through Housing & Residence Life for the spring semester. Dining dollars will not roll over if the student purchases an optional meal plan.

We strive to accommodate the full-spectrum of dietary needs and restrictions by providing daily rotating vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options as well as an allergen-conscious station free of the top eight food born allergens. We offer an allergen self-identification tool and an allergen-free station at the Eatery. If you have a dietary accommodation you feel cannot be met in the dining hall, please complete our Dietary Accommodation Form.

We are aligned with the University of Idaho’s Sustainability Center to incorporate sustainable practices into all programs, reduce our ecological footprint and foster a culture of environmental consciousness. Vandals Dining’s Better Tomorrow Sustainability Plan focuses on climate action, waste minimization, resource stewardship and sustainability education.

Students living in the residence halls for the 2022-2023 academic year can change their Fall 2022 meal plan through Sunday, Aug. 28, 2022. View dining and meal plan options
