SPU Point Balances.
SPU Point balances will carry forward through Spring Quarter, provided you remain on a quarterly meal plan; however, SPU points cannot be used during breaks. Access to SPU points ends at 5 pm on the Friday before commencement; any remaining balance will be forfeited. If a student cancels his or her meal plan, he or she forfeits any remaining SPU Points at that time.

Advantage Point Balances.
Unused Advantage Points will carry from quarter to quarter and year to year. If no activity is recorded on an account for three consecutive quarters, any remaining Advantage Points will be forfeited. Advantage Points purchased on your housing contract do not automatically renew at the end of the quarter; you may renew them at your discretion in OUS, via the Banner Information System, or via your Campus Card Services online account. A $25 minimum purchase is required. No refunds are given on Advantage Points.

Block 25 & Block 50 Meal Plan Balances.
Unused Block 25 and Block 50 balances will carry from quarter to quarter and year to year. If no activity is recorded on an account for three consecutive quarters or if you change to a quarterly meal plan, any remaining balance will be forfeited. Block 25 and Block 50 plans purchased on your housing contract do not automatically renew at the end of the quarter; you may renew them at your discretion in OUS or online via the Banner Information System. No refunds are given on Block meal plans.

Special Dietary Needs.
If you have a special diet or food allergy, the executive chef and food service managers will discuss options to meet your needs. Please answer "YES" to question #4 on the Campus Housing Application and contact Dining Services at 206-281-2356.

A selection of vegetarian and vegan items are offered at all meals. Students with dietary needs that are unable to be met by Dining Services should consider living in the campus apartments, where a meal plan is not required.

Schedule Conflicts.
If your class, work schedule, or athletic program conflicts with your meal plan, contact Dining Services at 206-281-2356 for assistance. They will discuss options to meet your needs.

 

Get-Well Meals.
"Get-well" meals are provided to students who, due to illness or injury, are unable to eat in the dining hall for a limited period of time. If you are ill or injured, complete this form to have a friend pick up a get-well meal for you (directions are included on the form). Contact your PA, RLC, Dining Services or Housing and Meal Plan Services if you have questions.
