An integral part of making the year a successful one for you is to ensure you have the appropriate meal plan to support your busy schedule. Between getting to and from classes, studying, your social life and all your other academic commitments, you can benefit from the dining opportunities Lackmann offers across campus.
We understand that our students make dining a social event with their friends. We also want to make sure that you never have to worry about being able to eat. That is why the meal plan has been designed to accommodate the various needs of our students. When signing up, be sure to select a meal plan based on your academic schedule, eating patterns and social life.
Traditional resident plans are included with your room and board charges. Your meal “allowance” is intended to be used in our all-you-care-to-eat Main Dining Hall for breakfast, lunch & dinner. However, meals can also be used in our retail locations through the cash equivalency option for lunch and dinner. Each time a meal swip is used it has the value of $5.00 and it is subtracted from your weekly balance. Unused meals do not carry over from week to week and the meal Reservations reset every Sunday night. Also, you can use one meal per meal period. For example, breakfast is from 7 am- 10 am and you can only swipe your card once during breakfast hours.
Please Note: All resident students are required to be on one of the Meal Plans. Remaining meals and flexi will be on your Wagner ID card and up to the minute balances can be had at any dining location or the card office. Purchased flexi cash will carry over from Fall to Spring, but do not carry over from academic year to academic year. Included with room & board, Traditional Meal Plans allow you to enjoy up to a specified number of guaranteed meals each week for the semester. You can only eat one meal per meal period. Unused meals do not roll over. (Freshman are automatically placed on the 19 meal plan and can only upgrade to a Block Plan.)

Block plans are the most versatile plans available. These plans work like a debit card. You can use the blocks at any time & at any facility with total flexibility over use! The number of meals & flexi expire at the end of the semester.
Wagner Colleges’ Block Plans are designed as a declining balance plan. We believe the declining balance plans provide maximum flexibility and freedom for you to choose what you want to eat, when, and where. You are not limited to a certain facility or day. With that freedom comes responsibility. You are responsible for managing your food blocks and flexi throughout the semester and academic year. Your purchased flexi cash will carry over from Fall to Spring semester but not from academic year to academic year. Block Plans cost $135-$305 per semester to upgrade from the Traditional Meal Plans.

Flexi dollars are held in a “declining balance account” that works on the same principle as a debit card. You can use your Flexi to purchase beverages, snacks or even a full meal in any of our campus dining locations. Each time you make a purchase, the purchase amount is subtracted from your Flexi Dollars balance. Flexi Dollars do carry over from semester to semester, but not from year to year. Flexi Dollars can be added to your account at any time by visiting the Dining Services office.

A simple swipe saves you time, money and the headache of losing your parking space. Meals are accepted in the Main Dining Hall for a full academic year. With each swipe of your card, a meal is deducted from your total meal balance.
