Student dining plans are designed to allow Spartans to dine on campus or on the go. With so many locations and options available from 7 a.m.-midnight, you’ll never go hungry!
Please note that rates listed are for the 2019-2020 school year. Dining plan rates are subject to change based on room and board rates approved by the MSU Board of Trustees and rates set by the Division of Residential and Hospitality Services. For complete room and board rates, including summer 2019 information, please see the Live On website.
Students living on campus choose one of the three dining plans below when signing their housing contract through Live On. To select or change an on-campus dining plan, please contact the Housing Assignments Office at 517-884-5483 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit them on the first floor of 1855 Place, 550 S. Harrison Road, East Lansing, MI 48823. Dining plans are non-refundable. For a complete list of rates, please see the Live On website.

Owen Hall Changes
Beginning fall semester 2019, the DineOn Owen plan will no longer be available and Owen Hall becomes board optional. Residents can purchase one of the unlimited dining plans listed above or an off-campus dining plan, as outlined below. Owen residents can also choose to forgo having a dining plan.
In addition, MSU Culinary Services has opened Thrive, our tenth all-you-care-to-eat dining hall in Owen to enhance culinary excellence and continue providing safe, convenient options for the campus community. Thrive at Riverwalk Market at Owen Hall features three all-you-care-to eat venues, serving a variety of flavorful cuisine. In addition to giving diners more flexibility, the dining hall is sesame-conscious and certified free from the Big 8 allergens (milk, eggs, soy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish) plus gluten.
Students living in Owen Hall, Williams Hall, Van Hoosen Hall, University Apartments, 1855 Place or at off-campus properties can purchase meal accesses in bundles of 10. Students living off campus are also welcome to purchase an unlimited dining plan, listed under ‘On-campus Plans’ above.
DineOn 10+ | $77.50 per 10-meal bundle ($7.75 per meal)
Meal accesses must be purchased in bundles of 10, with a maximum of 20 bundles (200 meals) able to be purchased in a single transaction. Meal accesses can be used at any of the nine residential dining halls on campus and as a Combo-X-Change at participating locations. Guests with off-campus plans can use multiple Combo-X-Changes per day (each Combo deducts one meal access). Meal accesses can also be used to bring friends and guests to eat with you in the dining halls.
