What is a Meal Plan?

A Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at eight locations across campus. Your Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and Flex Dollars, conveniently loaded onto your Warhawk Student ID Card. No need to carry additional cards or cash!


Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes give you access to our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, Schulze Dining Hall.


FLEX Dollars

FLEX Dollars may be used at any ULM Dining location, as well as Papa John’s off campus. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation. Additionally, any leftover FLEX Dollars at the end of the fall semester will rollover and be eligible for use in the spring semester when a spring meal plan is purchased! FLEX added to accounts without a meal plan, will not rollover.

Guest Meals

Buddy Swipes

Buddy Swipes allow you to swipe one guest, friend, or family member into the Schulze Dining Hall each week, free of charge. These Buddy Swipes are a great way to share the ULM Dining experience with anyone who may not have a meal plan!
