What is a Meal Plan?

A Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at several locations across campus. Your Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and Dining Dollars, conveniently loaded onto your Colonel 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, Case Kitchen.



Flex may be used at any EKU Dining location. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation.


+ Meal (formally known as VIP)

Meal plans that include the + Meal option offer the opportunity to use a meal swipe for a preset combination meal at branded campus dining locations. The VIP option is limited to one per day, Sunday through Thursday, between 8:00 PM and closing at participating locations or anytime at Colonel Grill.

Meal Plan Benefits

With your meal plan, you receive many benefits and perks, including:

  • Quality food made fresh by our culinary team, with a variety of menu options personalized the way you like
  • Healthy choices available all across campus
  • Special events with themed meals and exclusive offers for meal plan members
  • Casual atmosphere with wifi, TVs, music and lounge-style seating—perfect for studying or hanging out with friends.
  • To-go meals: To-go meals: simply request a to-go box when you swipe in at any of our dining halls. This program allows you to eat on the go and enjoy your food on any schedule. Fill your container from Case Kitchen and take your meal to-go. You can then return that dirty container on your next visit and receive a new, clean container for another to-go meal!!
