Commuter Meal Plan available for students moving off campus this fall

Campus Dining officials have received requests from students moving off campus for a meal plan catered to them. They want to enjoy the convenience and wide variety of food choices at on-campus dining commons and restaurants.

The Commuter Meal Plan is now available for students living off campus starting in the fall 2012 semester. The meal plan is charged directly to students' Bursar account. It is accepted at all on-campus dining locations, including the all-you-care-to-eat dining commons, cafes, athletic venue concession stands and the Berkey Creamery.

The Commuter Meal Plan has two level options: Level One ($500) and Level Two ($1,000). Once a level is purchased and the student has paid his or her bill for the upcoming semester, the full amount will be deposited into his or her account, which is accessed by the student's Penn State id+ Card.

The plan can be purchased at Enrolled, off-campus students must purchase the plan before the Bursar account due date (July 13 at 5 p.m.). If the due date has passed, students should consider activating a LionCash+ account. For more information, visit


With the Commuter Meal Plan, students enjoy a 10 percent discount at the all-you-care-to-eat dining commons, as well as a 10 percent discount on prepared items at select Campus Dining locations. Prepared items are meals, snacks and beverages that are made by Campus Dining staff. This excludes menu items at nationally branded restaurants and cafes.
