Meal Plan Details
What are my meal plan options?

After their Freshman year, students can remain on Platinum, Gold or Silver, or choose the Bronze meal plan. Spooner residents can choose the Spooner meal plan. The DINE|NMU commuter meal plans are an option for on-campus apartment residents, as well as any student.

Do I have to have a meal plan while living on campus?
For 2020-2021, Northern Michigan University requires those students living in residence halls to be on one of the meal plans: Platinum, Gold or Silver (unlimited meal per week) or Bronze (10 meals per week). Freshmen students must participate in the Platinum, Gold or Silver plan. Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors may select one of the other plans. Spooner Hall residents may also choose the Spooner Hall meal plan. If you have questions please contact NMU Dining’s Registered Dietitian at 906-227-6624 or email DiningRD@nmu.edu.
