Optional Student Meal Plan Contract | Buy Ahead 2021

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE PROVISIONS IN THE CONTRACT. READ IT CAREFULLY.

This is an optional student meal plan contract with Michigan Dining made between the undersigned and the Regents of the University of Michigan. Michigan Dining agrees to provide you with an off-campus meal plan for Fall 2021 – Winter 2022 at the Fall 2020 – Winter 2021 rate.

1. TERM OF CONTRACT

By selecting an optional meal plan option from the 2021 Buy-Ahead, you accept to purchase a meal plan for Fall 2021 – Winter 2022 at the Fall 2020 – Winter 2021 rate. At the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester, Michigan Dining will charge your student account according to the meal plan selection you made.

You must have your Mcard and an active meal plan to enter the dining hall, or are prepared to pay with Blue Bucks, dining dollars, or a credit card where accepted. You may not transfer meals, share your meal plan, or loan your Mcard to any other person for the purpose of entering the dining hall. Allowing unauthorized use of your meal plan privileges may result in additional charges or cancellation of meal plan privileges without a refund.

2. THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT

This contract obligates you for the full contract price per meal plan unless your contract is terminated by Michigan Dining. This contract is for the purchase of a student meal plan for Fall 2021 and Winter 2022.

3. MEAL PLAN INFORMATION

You are welcome to eat as much as you like when you are in our dining halls, but carry-out items are limited to a piece of fruit or a hand-held dessert. Bringing containers into the dining hall for use in removing food is not permitted.

A block plan (55 Block, 80 Block, and 125 Block) is a declining meal contract. Each time you enter a dining hall, a meal is deducted from the balance. There is no limit to the number of meals you can use each day, and you may bring a guest by using one of the meals from your balance.

The premium plan has no limit to the number of meals you can use. The plan comes with a declining balance of guest meals. Each time you bring a guest, a guest meal is deducted from the balance.

All guests must be accompanied by the student meal plan holder into the dining hall for a meal.

Each plan comes with a set number of dining dollars. Dining dollars can be used at all Michigan Dining locations including our open-access dining halls, caf├ęs, markets, and grills, and with our catering services. Visit the following links for more information about individual locations, their menus, and hours.

Meals are not provided during some holidays and break periods. Visit https://dining.umich.edu/menus-locations for more details about holiday hours and hours for specific units.

4. CHANGING / CANCELLING A PLAN

You may change your selection at no cost before 5/31/21. Your most recent submission will be the meal plan added to your account. Beginning on 6/1/21, changing your selection will result in paying for the newly selected meal plan at the Fall 2021 – Winter 2022 rate. Upgrading or downgrading a plan for Winter semester (i.e. changing from an 80 Block Meal Plan to a 55 Block Meal Plan) will result in paying for the new meal plan at the Winter 2022 rate.

You will have 2 weeks from the start of each semester to cancel your optional meal plan. Changes and cancellations can be made by emailing mealplans@umich.edu, requesting the change/cancellation, and including your UMID number in the request. Or you can request to cancel your meal plan by visiting dining.umich.edu/canceloptionalmealplan and filling out the form.

 

You must comply with all rules, regulations and policies as applicable to your meal plan.
