Are you a first year student? We recommend that you select the 150 Block Meal Plan until you are familiar with campus life and your class routine. Any Block Meal Plan is a great buy. Just compare the cost of one of our meals to eating off-campus and you’ll see the difference.You’ll be able to spend your meal block the way you want to because with these plans, you don’t have a meal quota each week.
Friends or relatives visiting? Use your Block Meal Plan to treat your guests to a meal at Stimson, Heubeck or in Kosher anytime they are on campus during the semester.
*Note: Certain special meal events may be excluded.
A busy schedule should never be the reason to miss a great meal. Take a look at the variety of block plans available and select the Plan that suits your lifestyle, schedule and eating habits—then, enjoy your new-found freedom.

Block Meal Plans will not cover the entire semester if you swipe the maximum of five times per day. You should be prepared to use cash, Gopher Bucks, or any remaining Dining Dollars to purchase meals once zero meals remain in your Meal Plan. You can add Gopher Bucks at www.goucher.edu/onecard
*Note: Unused blocks or remaining Dining Dollars expire at the close of the semester. They become invalid and do not carry over to the next semester.

You can purchase additional dining dollars in the following increments, with added bonus value.
$25 purchased = NO added/bonus value
$100 or more purchased = 15% added/bonus value totaling $115 on each $100
