Resident Student Meal Plans
In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the 2016-2017 academic year.
When you arrive on campus, you will get a Benedictine University BenCard which will allow you to access a prepaid dining account to purchase food in a variety of locations. You must bring your BenCard to every meal, entry will not be permitted without your BenCard. If you lose your BenCard you should report to Benedictine University Police immediately to purchase a new card.
The Resident Board Plans
These plans provide you with a specific number of meals per semester for "all you care to eat" meals in the Krasa Dining Room. You can use them all yourself, or use some to bring guests in with you. If you mis-a-meal your card may be swiped for a meal in the Coal Ben (the mis-a-meal program has specific times). Additional value is provided with a specific amount of Munch Money each semester to use at the Coal Ben or Coffee Shop. Looking for a printable version of the meal plan information?

Krasa Dining Room Meal Prices
One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:
- Please bus your dishes and disposables from your table when you have finished dining
- Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
- Remember that meal cards are non-transferable. Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.
