2017-18 Academic Year Meal Plan Options


Below, please find the meal plan options available for all MIT undergraduate and graduate students.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

MIT's House Dining Meal Plan Program is based on the residence and class year of students. Plans range from nineteen meals per week to a ten meals per week.

Students Living in a Residence Hall with a House Dining Hall

If you live in Baker House, Maseeh Hall, McCormick Hall, Next House, or Simmons Hall, you must enroll in the minimum meal plan according to your residence hall, as well as your semester term. You may also choose to purchase a higher or more flexible meal plan. See the chart below for your options.

Students Living in a Non-Dining Residence Hall

Students who reside in a non-dining residence hall, or live off-campus, may voluntarily enroll in the meal plan program. These students must purchase the minimum meal plan for their semester term. See the chart below for your options.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

As an MIT graduate student, you have the option to enroll in any meal plan.

BASIC Plans

The Basic 14 plan includes an equal number of breakfasts/brunches and dinners each week. The Basic 12 and the Basic 10 plans includes any combination of breakfasts/brunches and dinners each week. Meals under the basic plan must be enjoyed during the specified time, and cannot be reserved for later. For example, breakfast must be eaten in the dining hall when the dining hall is serving breakfast. Meal plan holders may use that day's dinner swipe for late night dining if that day's dinner was missed during regular service hours.

ANY Plans

ANY plans allow students maximum flexibility with their meals. You may eat the allotted weekly meals at any time—breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night. Class year is determined by the total number of semesters attended at MIT:

  • Freshmen: Semesters 1 & 2
  • Sophomore: Semesters 3 & 4
  • Junior: Semesters 5 & 6
  • Senior: Semesters 7 & greater
