Resident 2014-2015

Menu of Meal Plan Options

As a resident student you have more important things to concern yourself with than worrying if you have enough meals for the entire week. Roger Williams University has crafted two great meal plan options to provide easy access to great food and communal dining.

The following meal plan options are available to any student, but required for those residents who live in our traditional style living areas.

Carte Blanche Platinum

Unlimited meals in residential dining plus 300 Hawk Dollars per semester; 3 guest passes per semester
$3512 per semester  

Carte Blanche Gold

Unlimited meals in residential dining plus 125 Hawk Dollars per semester; 3 guest passes per semester 
$3353 per semester

200 Block Plan

Ideal plan for students who want to eat an average of thirteen meals per week on campus and use 300 in Hawk Dollars throughout the semester; 3 guest passes per semester.
$3353 per semester

Carte Blanche

For students living in our residence halls, there is no better value than the meals per week option.  This option allows you to enjoy up to an unlimited number of guaranteed meals each week for the semester that you have signed up for.   Your Hawk Dollars do carry over from semester to semester but not from year to year.

Block Meal Plans

Block Meal Plans offer students the most flexibility as the amount of meals that you sign up for can be used throughout the semester in any manner.  Students can use their block meals at our two all-you-care-to-eat dining halls.  Unlike the traditional meals per week plans available to resident students, meals on our block plans will carry over from week to week.  So, you won’t have to worry about losing your meals each week if you do not use them. With a Block Meal Plan, there are no restrictions and the flexibility is endless!  Your Hawk Dollars do carry over from semester to semester but not from year to year.

Hawk Dollars

Hawk Dollars are accepted like cash in all our dining locations.  Hawk Dollars are a “declining balance account” that works on the same principle as a debit card.  You can use your Hawk Dollars to purchase beverages, snacks, or even a full meal in all of the RWU retail and residential locations.  Each time you make a purchase, the purchase amount is subtracted from your Hawk Dollar balance.  Your Hawk Dollars do carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester but not from year to year.

Unicard Points

Much like Hawk Dollars, Unicard Points are accepted like cash in all our dining locations and are a “declining balance account” that works on the same principle as a debit card (Unicard Points can also be used at location on and off campus.  You can find a full list of locations that accept RWU Unicard Points here: http://unicardpoints.ugrydnetwork.com/). However, your Unicard Points are assigned when a customer adds extra money to their Unicard at the Bursars Office or Unicard Office. As an extra bonus, a 10% discount will be given to all customers who use their Unicard Points to make a purchase at our retail locations.

Guest Pass Bundles

For students currently on a meal plan, one Guest Pass Bundle may be purchased per semester.  A Guest Pass Bundle can be purchased at the ID Office located in the Lower Commons and will add two guest passes to their Unicard.
$14

All students living in RWU resident halls must be enrolled in either the Carte Blanche Gold or the 200 Block Plan.  They are eligible to buy-up to the Carte Blanche Platinum

Commuter & Law Students

Roger Williams University has created several dining plans especially for the Commuter and Law Student community to provide greater access to the new Upper Commons Dining Café and all the other new services on campus. When you purchase one of these plans, you can be sure that you have access to healthy, nutritional food choices when you're on campus.

Commuter Plan

This plan offers the best value for commuting students.  You will receive 15 meals per semester that can be eaten at any meal period, as well as 300 Hawk Dollars.
$464 per semester

125 Block Plan

Ideal plan for apartment dwellers who want to eat an average of 7-8 meals per week on campus and use 400 in Hawk Dollars throughout the semester; 3 guest passes per semester
$1715 per semester 

Visit the ID Office located on the first floor of the Lower Commons to sign up for your dining plan or to find out more about our exciting offers.
