The Preston Meal Plan

Meal Plan prices

A 4-meal plan is available for returning residents only. The 4-meal plan does not include meal plan dollars.

How it Works

Preston residents are expected to have dinner together in the Preston Dining Hall, affectionately known as PDining, throughout the semester and participate in special dinners and events.

  • All Preston residents are required to purchase a Preston meal plan. This applies to students who belong to a fraternity or sorority with a separate meal plan.
  • Preston meal plans work like any other meal plan. You'll be able to use your plan on campus, day and night.
  • You can bring up to five guests at a time. If you want to bring a friend from another residence hall, they may need to pay the difference when they swipe to get in.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
