Ever stand in front of the fridge at home, look inside and say, “There’s nothing to eat around here?” You won’t catch yourself saying that at Viterbo University. Daily campus dining provides an array of options and menus that can tempt any palate. All students living on Viterbo campus are required to carry a meal plan. All freshman residents are required to be on one of the “19” or "14" plans. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors have the option to choose any meal plan. Your completed housing agreement is all you need to sign up.
The Dining Service staff is committed to providing a quality program to students. We encourage student involvement to ensure that the dining service program continues to represent the varied lifestyles of today’s university student. Students with suggestions or comments regarding any aspect of our service are encouraged to stop by the Campus Dining office, fill out a dining room comment card, or join the Dining Service Committee. The Dining Service staff is looking forward to serving you.
The meal plan week begins with breakfast on Thursday and ends with dinner on Wednesday. Viterbo University Dining Service offers seven meal plan options:

- Flex 80 with $100 in V-Hawk Value Bucks: This block plan allows the meal-plan holder the option to eat any 80 meals in the semester. The meal-plan holder may also bring up to four guests to any meal in the Marian Hall Dining Room. The guest option does not apply to transfer meals in Crossroads Snack Bar.
Please contact the Office of Residence Life for meal plan costs.
What’s a V-Hawk Value Buck?
V-Hawk Value Bucks are prepaid dollars automatically deposited into your food service account to be used in the form of a declining balance at the Marian Hall Dining Room or Crossroads Snack Bar. V-Hawk Value Bucks are a great value, convenient to use, and offer flexibility in your meal plan. They may be used to purchase full meals at the dining room or to make a la carte purchases of food, snacks, and beverages at Crossroads Snack Bar. Meal-plan holders may purchase additional V-Hawk Value Bucks at the Campus Dining office in the amount of $95 receiving a $100 value. Fall semester V-Hawk Bucks will carry over to spring semester but any remaining balance at the end of spring semester will be forfeited.
Meal Plan Changes:
Students may change a meal plan during the first two weeks of each semester and the last two weeks of the fall semester. The Office of Residence Life has meal plan change forms available during those times in its office.
If you are unable to eat meals at the Marian Hall Dining Room due to class or work conflicts, you may take advantage of the transfer-meal option offered at Crossroads Snack Bar. This option allows you to use your meal plan to dine in Crossroads during transfer hours after the dining room is closed. Transfer options consist of various combo meals that are rotated on a regular basis. Please keep in mind that Crossroads is not a full-service dining facility, therefore, portions will be limited as posted.
