Calvin's dining plans are geared primarily towards 2 audiences: 1) students living on campus in our residence halls, and 2) students living in either the KE or Timmer apartments or off-campus. Please identify which group you'd be a part of, and then browse your options from the links below.
If you’re living on-campus in one of our Residence Halls, this plan is for you! With the option of 21, 15, or 10 meals a week and Bonus Bucks to use at Johnny’s, the Fish House, The Standard Dining Plans give you a worry free way to get all the meals you need.
If you’re a student living in our KE or Timmer apartments, or if you’re living off-campus, the Community Dining Plan is for you! More Flexible than the Standard Dining Plan, the Community Dining Plan provides upperclass students with the meals they need but don’t have the time to cook while encouraging them to participate in the Calvin community by simply hanging out with friends over dinner.
Dining dollars is a debit card system accessed through your ID card. You select the amount you'd like on your ID card and stop in the food services office to have money added (cash or check only). Dining dollars are accepted at all dining locations.
Your ID card can also be a credit card. Swipe your card and the amount will be added to your miscellaneous statement which you will need to pay at the end of each month through financial services.
Residents must indicate the meal plan of their choice on their housing contract. Meal plan changes may be made during the first week of classes during the first or second semester. Meal plans may not be changed for interim. Changes can be made in the Housing office, located in the Student Life Office within the Spoelhof Center.
Your ID Card is required to be with you at all times. If you have lost or misplaced your ID, please visit the Housing Department, located in the Spoelhof Building. They will re-issue you a new ID Card for a fee of $20.00. Until your ID Card is either found or replaced, a $5.00 deposit will be asked for by the line checker each time you enter the Dining Hall(s) to eat. Once your card is replaced, please visit the Dining Services Office within seven (7) days to receive your deposit back.
