There are more than 20 dining options to choose from across campus and the meal plan covers all Campus Dining restaurants. Meal Plans are applied to your OU student ID, the Sooner Card.
Most Meal Plans that offer meals are based on a weekly cycle and reset each Sunday morning at 12:01 a.m. While the meals may reset each week, the set amount of Meal Plan Points you purchase are only available per semester. Meal Points roll over from fall to spring semester, but not from spring to the next fall semester. Unused Meal Points will expire on the Friday of finals week of the spring semester. If you do not return to your housing assignment for the spring semester of your application, you forfeit your Meal Plan, including both meals and points. Students can change their Meal Plans the second and third weeks of each semester.
Meals are used at all Residential Campus Dining locations: Couch Restaurants, the Residential Colleges' Dining Hall (housed between Dunham College and Headington College) and Wagner Dining (in Headington Hall).
Meals reset every Sunday morning at 12:01 a.m.. Unused meals do not roll over from week to week.
Select restaurants across campus will allow students to exchange a meal for an $11 exchange value.
Meal Exchanges may be used at the following times in dining locations north of Lindsey Street:
Monday-Friday: After 2 p.m. at Chick-fil-A, Baja Fresh, Crossroads, Quiznos and the Union Market.
Anytime: Meal Exchanges are available anytime during business hours at dining locations located south of Lindsey Street (Einstein Bros Bagels, Amicus Café, Flying Cow Café and Café 201).
All Cross Village dining locations accept Meal Exchanges any time during business hours, excluding Acre Provisions Marketplace.
Meal Points are a debit-card system loaded onto your Sooner Card that may be used at all Campus Dining locations. Each Meal Point equals $1. Each time you use the card, the amount of your purchase is deducted from your balance.
Meal Points roll over from fall to spring semester, but not from spring to the next fall semester. Unused Meal Points will expire on the Friday of finals week of the spring semester. If you do not return to your housing assignment for the spring semester of your contract, you forfeit your meal plan, including both meals and points.
