Meal Plans at a Glance 2012-2013
This year UIC offers all-you-care-to-eat, anytime dining. You can eat all you want at designated locations, any day, and anytime (see locations) according to the meal plan you choose. All students who live in Commons South, Commons West, Commons North, Courtyard, Polk Street Residence, Student Residence Hall or James Stukel Towers are required to choose a meal plan.
- Are you on campus every day of the week? Our 7-Day meal plan is right for you.
- Do you go home for the weekends? Our 5-Day (Monday-Friday) meal plan is perfect for you.
The cost of the 5-Day meal plan is standard in all non-apartment room rates.
