Commuter Meal Plans

Spring 2021 – Be smart, eat well and spend less

Commuter Meal Plans are the smart choice for WMU students living off-campus or in WMU Apartments, Western View and Spindler Hall. Dining locations are convenient and close to academic buildings – so when you are hungry or in between classes there are dining options nearby.

Commuter meal plans provide students access to a variety of options:

  • Dining Centers (dine-in options, all-you-care-to-eat facilities, late-night location)
  • Grab'n Go (quick, carryout options located next to each dining center)
  • Campus Cafés (using Dining Dollars that come with the meal plan to purchase items)

Commuter meal plans will be accepted Jan. 10, 2021 through April 30, 2021. If you plan to leave campus prior to April 30, please be sure to plan to use your meals accordingly. A credit or refund will not be issued for unused meals.

If you have questions or would like to make a change to your current commuter meal plan, please call the WMU Dining Services at (269) 387-4844.

No changes will be made to any commuter meal plan after Feb. 26, 2021.
