Meal Plans

Students with different housing and different schedules have different needs when it comes to dining on campus. With this in mind, we’ve developed a variety of meal plans and options.

For additional information on the costs and types of meal plans, along with some commonly asked questions, please visit Tech Fresh’s meal plans page.

Some more general information has been provided below.

Types of meal plans

Although some of our housing facilities require meal plan participation at different levels, both residential and commuter students may purchase a meal plan.  Indiana Tech offers five meal plan or meal block options for our students include the following:

    • 19-meal plan: Includes all meals served by Dining Services throughout the week.
    • 10-meal plan: Any 10 meals throughout the week from Sunday through Saturday.
    • 5-meal plan: Any 5 meals throughout the week from Sunday through Saturday.
    • 100-meal block: A block of 100 meals to use at any time through the year.
    • 50-meal block: A block of 50 meals to use at any time through the year.

If you are interested in purchasing a meal plan, contact the residence life office. If you would like to add a meal block to your account, please contact the business office.

Meal plan requirements for residential students

Meal plan requirements and eligibility depend on which residence hall you live in and your year on campus.

  • Pierson Center, Kalbfleisch Hall, and Warrior Row C: All residents are required to purchase the 19-meal plan.
  • Evans-Kimmell and Oropeza halls: All first-year students are required to purchase the 19-meal plan. Students in their second year and beyond are required to purchase a meal plan, but may choose the 19-, 10, or 5-meal plans.
  • Warrior Row A and B, Yergens-Rogers Hall: Residents are not required to purchase a meal plan, but may choose any of the meal plans or meal cards if they wish.

Retail or single meal purchases

Students not participating in a meal plan may purchase single meals from our dining hall or items from the Kachmann Cafe’ in the Academic Center.  Payment options include cash or credit or you may add Campus Cash to your student ID card which will provide you a 10% discount on your purchase. To add money to your account, visit Campus OneCard or visit the Business Office in the Abbott Center.  Parents, relatives, or even friends may upload money onto your ID card as long as they know your ID number.
