Meal Plans

Knox meal plans are designed with you in mind and with an emphasis on flexibility. Plans consist of a specific number of meals, Dining Dollars that can be spent just like cash at any Dining Service location, and you may use your board meals (up to five per meal period in the Dining Halls; up to three per meal period at the Grab-N-Go stations) to bring family members and friends to dine with you, all of which can be used whenever and however you like each term. Unused meals and Dining Dollars are non-transferable and do not "roll" from term to term. Flex Dollars may also be purchased and can be used the same as cash at all dining locations, as well as at campus copy machines, in the Knox College Bookstore, and at specific laundry facilities on campus.
