Michigan Dining continues to take steps to ensure that guests remain safe while eating on campus. Our Dining program is guided and informed by public health information and University and Michigan Medicine experts.

For entry into the dining halls, all students and guests must show their daily ResponsiBlue Health Screening. For more information regarding measures the campus is taking to limit the spread of COVID-19 please visit the Maize and Blueprint page.

Guests with allergy concerns should email eatsmart@umich.edu.

Winter 2022


Michigan Dining will have all of our dining halls open for dine-in and carry-out service.

We are continuing our work with University and Michigan Medicine experts and our partners in Housing to determine safety measures that will be in place. At this time these include but are not limited to: displaying ResponsiBlue screening for entrance.


Residential Meal Plans:
All students living in a residence hall are required to have a Residential Meal Plan.  If you need to make changes to your meal plan after you have signed your contract, you are able to do so by visiting via our meal plan portal, GET. The deadline to downgrade your Winter term meal plan is January 19, 2022, at 11:59 PM.

Off-Campus Meal Plans:

Winter 2022 meal plans are now available for purchase on GET. The deadline to cancel/downgrade your Winter term meal plan is January 19, 2022, at 11:59 PM.

*Fall meal swipes and Dining Dollars only rollover with the purchase of a Winter term meal plan. Any remaining balances at the end of the Winter term will expire.*
