New meal plan for off-campus students available for spring semester

September 25, 2012

New this year, Penn State is offering a Commuter Meal Plan, which was created specifically for students who live off campus. It is accepted everywhere the Campus Meal Plan is, offers the same discounts as LionCash+, and can be charged directly to a student’s Bursar Account.

Commuter Meal Plans for the spring 2013 semester can be purchased online before the Bursar deadline (5 p.m. Nov. 9). There are $500 and $1,000 levels and all funds are spendable as dining dollars.

Housing and Food Services runs more than 50 dining commons, cafés, convenience stores and restaurants at 11 Penn State locations across the state. Its meal plans and LionCash+ are accepted at every location. Commuter Meal Plan members enjoy a 10 percent discount on purchases at select locations.

The Commuter Plan also is available for graduate students and students with families living on campus.

Funds purchased in the fall carry forward to the spring semester; however, leftover funds at the end of the spring semester are forfeited.
