How does the meal plan work at I-House?

May 9, 2023

There is a $6.50 per-day charge required for all residents, regardless of length of stay. That amount is given as dining credit on the resident’s ID, available for use as the resident wishes in the dining hall.

Can I add more dining credit to my ID card?

January 23, 2023

Residents can always add more dining credit to their ID card at the Bursar Office.

How is the food priced?

January 23, 2023

Prepared meals that rotate every meal are available for purchase by weight. Other options, like prepared sandwiches and grill options have set prices. A standard breakfast will cost approximately $3-$6; a typical lunch averages around $7-$10; an average dinner can cost anywhere from $9-$12.

Will I be able to eat three meals in the dining hall with $6.50/day?

May 9, 2023

No. The $6.50/day charge will typically last a resident throughout about half of their stay if they are eating two meals a day in the dining hall. This policy comes with the understanding that most residents will eat many of their meals outside of International House
