Meal Plans

Bradley offers several choices of meal plans for Residential students, Commuter/Non-Residential students and Faculty and Staff. For detailed information on any of the meal plans at Dining Services.


Students living in the dorms (Williams, Geisert, UHall, Harper, Wycoff, Heitz, Elmwood, Wendle, and Lovelace) are required to carry a full meal plan. It is set up automatically and billed with the room and board charges on the student’s tuition bill. Four full meal plans are available: All Access (unlimited), 120 Block per semester, 14 per week, and 9 per week. If no meal plan selection is made, the student’s meal plan will default to the 14 Per Week meal plan.
