First-year students can purchase an All Access Meal Plan, or a 14 Weekly Meal Plan. An All Access Meal Plan provides you with access to each meal period at any of our on campus dining locations, while a 14 Weekly Meal Plan provides you with two meal swipes a day. Glassworks Eatery at Holly Pointe Commons is the campus All You Care to Eat dining location. Download the Dine on Campus app and “know before you go” to see daily menus and nutritional information. Looking for traditional retail options where you can use your meal plan? Select from a variety of Meal Exchange options at locations all across campus including the Market Place, Profs Place, James Hall, Sushi Do, and more. A meal exchange allows you to get a full meal for no additional cost at another dining location. Meal exchanges are considered “meal swipes,” so you won’t be able to use it again until the start of another meal period.

Dining Dollars vs. Rowan Bucks:
Dining Dollars are flexible spending dollars that can be used for dining purposes ONLY. They can be used at any on campus dining location and at select Rowan Blvd. food vendors. This ensures that you always have dollars for food.
Rowan Bucks can be used for anything, at any on-campus dining location and at over 80 vendors throughout the Glassboro community. I like to save my Rowan Bucks for my Walgreens trips, drive-through runs to Wendy’s or sushi from Samurai.
