Retail food service operations are available on the Denton, Houston and Dallas campuses. During fall, spring, and summer semesters, if you are attending the Denton campus, you have a choice of meal plans providing food service seven days a week. A selection of plans consists of traditional meals or an a-la-carte declining balance plan. Meal plans are loaded onto your TWU ID card.

All students, living in residence halls on the Denton campus must select a meal plan. Students residing in apartments are not required to purchase a meal plan; however, they may do so. Commuter meal plans are available to commuter students. Food is also available on a cash basis in all dining locations. You are encouraged to choose the meal plan that will most adequately meet your needs.

In the dining room, resident students must scan their current TWU ID meal card at every meal. This will confirm that the student is on a meal plan and will provide entry to the dining hall for each meal. Students must carry ID cards to all meals for admittance. There are no exceptions. Meal plans are not transferable; if you allow another person to use your meal card to purchase food, they you may lose all food service privileges. Please remember - the meal plan is only for the students who paid for the plan.

Your TWU ID card may not be transferred to another individual nor can missed meals be carried over to another semester. There is a replacement fee for ID cards. The cost of meal plans and hours of service are published in separate bulletins for fall, spring, and summer, and they are available in the University Housing and Dining office, Admissions, Student Life, the Pioneer Kitchen office, and the website

Denton dining services are available in the Student Union, CFO building, MCL Building, the Blagg-Huey Library, Oakland Parking Complex,  and the Guinn-Stark Commons. Special arrangements can be made for residential students who are ill and for those on special diets by contacting the Pioneer Kitchen. (Meals will not be served during the Thanksgiving, semester or spring breaks).

Additional cash value may be added to your card at any time during the semester. Any decreases in the meal plan must be made during the first 2 weeks of the semester. Meal plan increases may be made at any time during the semester.

All food venues are available to the general public. 

All Dining related questions or services are available at the Housing & Dining office currently located in Parliament Village, Mary's Hall, south end of the building.
