Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use my meal plan?

With the Embry-Riddle Dining Services Meal Plan, you don't have to worry about carrying cash. All of your meals and Sodexo Bucks are safely and securely accessed through your Eagle Card. If your card is lost or stolen, it can be deactivated 24 hours a day by going to the Eagle Card Center Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. or by calling the Safety Office at (386) 226-6480 after hours, or simply go to Present your Eagle Card at any dining location to make purchases; you'll never have to worry about scrounging for change again!

What exactly do I get with a meal plan?

All freshman meal plans include a complimentary Birthday Cake! Just stop by the Student Center Food Court on your birthday to pick it up! Most Meal Plans come with Sodexo Bucks (you must purchase a Meal Plan to participate and Sodexo Bucks expire on the last day of finals). If you want, you can use your Sodexo Bucks to grab a snack without worrying about wasting a full meal on a bag of chips.

Sodexo Bucks are also accepted at The Einstein’s Convenience Store, Chick-fil-A, and Starbucks. To upgrade your plan, sign up at the following locations: Student Orientation, Student Center Food Court Meal Plan Office or simply call Dining Services at (386) 226-6067. Remember that Meal plans are non-transferable. Meal plans cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.

Will a meal plan fit with my schedule?

Embry-Riddle Dining Services knows that your class schedule can be hectic and finding time to eat difficult. Unless they have installed tray tables and cup holders in the planes and desks, it can be tough to squeeze in a meal sometimes. They haven't... so we're here to help. Embry-Riddle Dining Services has locations near the dorms and classrooms with hours starting at 7:00 a.m. and open until 1:00 a.m. to help fit nutritious meal into your, yes we said your, schedule.

Will a meal plan fit with my diet?

Do you have particular dietary needs? No problem! Our Campus Dining Services Program can accommodate your special dietary requirements. For more information, please contact our General Manager at (386) 226-7277.

What does a typical meal consist of?

A typical meal is different at each location on campus. Please look for signs located in each location that will explain what you get for a meal plan specific to the location you are at... Meal plans can be used at every Dining location on campus!

When and where can I eat?

The meal plan period runs from 12:00 a.m. Sunday to 11:59 p.m. Saturday night. Meals are "use it or lose it" in nature. Meal plans can be used at every location on campus, including Chick-Fila, Starbucks, and Einstein’s. Early morning classes usually mean you'll travel from your bed to class (that's right, no shower), so how can you expect to grab breakfast along the way? And what are you supposed to do when you're staying up late for an exam? The hours of operation give you the flexibility to eat when it is most convenient for you. Nothing's worse than being hungry (Well, there are some things, but we won't get into that now) and Embry-Riddle Dining Services are here to help. Each location has it's own hours of operation, some as early as 7:00 a.m. and some as late as 1:00 a.m.
