All students who reside in on-campus housing are required to be on a meal plan to promote the social experiences surrounding dining together as part of the residential experience. Students living in traditional halls, small houses and language houses are required to be on the full meal plan each semester. Students living in student apartments, east campus apartments and fraternities are required to be on the apartment meal plan each semester. Students living in the Synergy house, Cottage Housing and Off campus are not required to be on a meal plan but may choose the full meal plan or apartment meal plan if they wish. They will need to contact the student accounts office via email to sign up for a meal plan.
Students are encouraged to give feedback about their specific dietary needs. “To Go” meals are available with advanced notice for religious observations such as Ramadan and for student group weekend trips. Please visit https://www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/residentiallife/residence-halls/index.html#meals to determine what office to speak to regarding your specific dietary concerns. There are occasions, due to religious or medical conditions, when the meal plan may not accommodate student dietary needs. Exemptions from the meal plan may be granted under these circumstances.
