This is where the option for winter/summer housing will be made available.

During the winter/summer breaks, no meal plan will be provided. Rates for staying during breaks are published during the semester and before the upcoming break.

Dining Services works hard to provide healthy and enjoyable meals to every student. They are able to accommodate a wide variety of allergies, including: gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, seafood, MSG, non-airborne nut, and certain oils. If you have one of these allergies, you simply need to complete the Dietary Accommodation Form. Once Dining Services receives that form, they will communicate a plan of care directly to you. If your allergy is not on the above list or if your situation deserves special consideration, you may apply to be exempt from the meal plan. In order to receive an exemption, you must complete the Meal Plan Exemption Form and provide medical documentation of your dietary needs or restrictions. Once the exemption form and documentation have been received, Boyce Student Life will consult with Dining Services to determine if they can make the appropriate accommodations or if an exemption is warranted.
