Knox Dining meal plans are designed with an emphasis on flexibility. Five residential student board plans and two student commuter plans are available. All residential students are expected to participate in a board plan.  

Additional spending power may be added to any student account with the purchase of Flex Dollars at any time during the academic year through the Campus Card office or through the GET application.

The meal plan contract is for the current academic year only, and each student is required to complete a new meal plan contract each academic year. You may change your meal plan at any time through the second Friday at the start of each term by simply completing a new contract in the Dining Services Office. The Dining Dollars portion of meal plans are available during Winter break, Spring break, and up to commencement. The meals portion of meal plans are not available during academic breaks.

Student Board Plans

Each residential board plan consists of a specific number of meals and Dining Dollars, which are non-transferable.  Board meals are for personal use and for the times when there is a need to entertain visiting family or friends.  Dining Dollars may be spent like cash at any dining location. Meals and Dining Dollars can be used whenever and however you like each term. Unused meals do not carry over from term to term.  Unused Dining Dollars do carry over from term to term and are available for use over academic breaks during the current academic school year but do not carry over from one academic year to the next. All Premier Plans are identically priced.

Academic Year 2020 - 2021
Premier Board Plan—$1,710/term
Meals/term Dining dollars
Premier 200 200 $75
Premier 150 150 $150
Premier 125 125 $190
Premier 100 100 $255
Premier 75 75 $335

Price per meal is calculated by subtracting dining dollars from the meal plan price and dividing that amount by the number of meals in each meal plan.

Student Commuter Plans

Commuter Plans are restricted to students who are not on a board plan and are living off campus. Each Commuter Plan consists of a specific number of meals which are non-transferable. The meals can be used whenever and however you like each term. Unused meals do not "roll" from term to term. Each Commuter Plan is individually priced based on the number of meals.

Academic Year 2020 - 2021
Commuter Plans
Meals/term Price/term
Commuter Plan 50 50 $488
Commuter Plan 25 25 $280

Flex Dollars

For Students, faculty, and staff:

Add convenience and flexibility to your account, whether you are on a board plan or not, by purchasing Flex Dollars in $25 increments at any time during the academic year.  Purchase options: cash, check, automatic billing each term by completing the Flex Dollar section on a meal plan contract, or our GET application or portal, purchase online.  To purchase Flex Dollars with cash or check, contact the Campus Card office. All funds deposited into a Flex account may be redeemed from the time of deposit through commencement or separation from Knox College.  Flex Dollars are not refundable. This program allows all students, faculty, and staff to use their ID cards to access the funds deposited versus carrying cash to make purchases in any dining location as well as in the Bookstore, at copy machines throughout campus, and at specific laundry facility locations.
