Where Can I Eat?
Hoya Hospitality is built on the belief that good food matters, and that credo is embodied across the many locations on campus. Find your next favorite lunch spot or dinner hang out below!
Fresh Food Company (Accepts: Meal Swipes | Guest Swipes | Flex Dollars | Cash, Credit + Debit, Google Wallet and Apple Pay)

You’ll find 11 completely different stations for you to choose from – Bakery, Grill, Vegan + Vegetarian, Pizza, BBQ, Breakfast and even an Allergen Free Solutions station (eliminating the top 8 allergens)! Starting with the freshest ingredients possible, the kitchen is turned inside out to create an environment where chefs craft many dishes to order in front of you.

How do you access all these great dining options on campus? Your Meal Plan! A Meal Plan is made up of three parts that work together to create a Plan you can always rely on.
- Meal Swipes: Choose how many all-you-care-to-eat breakfast, lunch and dinner meals you want to eat in the Fresh Food Company. Swipes can also be used for select meals in our restaurants around campus as a part of the Meal Exchange program.
- Flex Dollars: Additional dollars to use at all Hoya Hospitality locations. The dollars are loaded directly onto your Student ID card so there is no need to carry around cash or another card. Plus, Flex Dollars are tax exempt so you save money every time you eat!
- Guest Swipes: Treat your friends and family to a meal when they come to visit. Each Meal Plan comes preloaded with 5 Guest Swipes each semester.
First and second year students are required to participate in a Meal Plan. There are four different Plan options from which to choose:
All Access 7 (Unlimited Meal Swipes 7 days a week | $100 Flex | 5 Guest Swipes | $2,835 per semester)

Offering the most flexibility and best value, the All Access 7 allows for unlimited Meal Swipes in the Fresh Food Company every day of the week, plus 3 Meal Exchanges per day at select campus restaurants. $100 Flex is included and can be used for food purchases at the many campus options listed previously.

All Meal Swipes and Meal Exchanges are non-transferable and may only be used by the Meal Plan participant. Students with specialty dietary requirements are encouraged to contact our Registered Dietitian. You have until Friday, September 7 to change your Meal Plan. Changes can be made online by logging into your MyAccess account and selecting ‘Meal Plan Change’ under ‘Student Account Menu.’ Meal Plan changes will be reflected immediately on the student account under ‘View Account Activity.’
Meal Plan rates are shown per semester. Each fall semester plan will automatically renew to the spring semester unless a change is submitted. For more information on Meal Plans, policies, dining locations, important dates and everything else dining, please visit the Hoya Hospitality Website.
