Dining and Meal Plans

Dining Service Options

The on-campus dining program has been designed with flexibility to meet the unique needs of each student.

At Willamette University, we believe dining service plays an important role in the wellness and sense of community that makes our campus unique. Meals are prepared from scratch using fresh ingredients — all in a socially responsible manner that benefits our community, our guests and our environment.

Dining and Commuter Plans

Students select their Dining Plan when they sign their housing agreement the academic year. Students who already signed up for a dining plan, will have that plan moved over from the previous plan to a comparable plan. All students living in a residence hall have a dining plan. Willamette offers dining plans based on the number of meals, either per week (10-19 plans) or per semester (commuter plans), and assumes one meal per meal period. All plans include Dining Flex Dollars. Flex Dollars are a value placed on your student ID card that can be used like a declining balance. One point equals $1 in value. The 19-Meal Plan allows you to enter Goudy Commons during any meal period. You also may opt to use your lunch, Monday-Friday, meal equivalency at Blitz Market for the daily entrée.

We also offer commuter plans to non-residential students, upperclassmen, and graduate students. Commuter plans are also available to faculty, staff, and CST students. The two commuter options include either 40-meal or 25-meal block plans with $250 or $150 Flex Dollars, respectively. So, students can have any 40 or 25 meals per semester at any time in Goudy Commons or a lunch, Monday-Friday, at Blitz Market. Dining Flex Dollars can be spent at Goudy Commons, Blitz Market or Rick’s Café.

Food Allergies

We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.

Food allergies & sensitivities


Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
