ALL CAMPUS MEAL PLAN:

The most flexible, versatile, and cost-effective meal plan we offer.  The All Campus Meal Plan is accepted at all 24 UM Dining venues, which includes both Missoula College campuses and the UM Golf Course Clubhouse.  This plan provides $74.75 in Weekly Meal Plan Funds and an additional $104 in Bear Bucks per semester.  Bear Bucks are accepted at all UM Dining venues including the Galloping Griz food truck and during campus shut-down periods. 

LOMMASSON PLUS MEAL PLAN: 

The Lommasson Plus Meal Plan provides $52.00 in Weekly Meal Plan Funds and an additional $104 in Bear Bucks per semester. The Lommasson Plus Plan is accepted at the Food Zoo, Corner Store, Le Peak, Jus Chill'n at Campus Recreation, and both Missoula College campuses.    Bear Bucks are accepted at all UM Dining venues including the Galloping Griz food truck and during campus shut-down periods.

RESIDENTIAL MEAL PLANS - Fall 2014 & Spring 2015

Meal Plans1
Food Zoo Entrance Price Weekly Meal Plan Fund Maximum Weekly Entrances to the Food Zoo Bear Bucks Cost
All Campus Meal Plan $3.25* $74.75** 23*** $104 per semester**** $2,255
Lommasson Plus Meal Plan $3.25* $52.00** 16*** $104 per semester**** $2,035

*$3.25 represents food cost only. The difference between the total of the Weekly Meal Plan Funds and the meal plan cost per semester represents the cost of overhead (all non-food expenses like labor, utilities, rent, etc.).

**The Weekly Meal Plan Fund is based on the academic calendar and is prorated for short weeks (holidays, etc.). Weekly Meal Plan Funds reset every Sunday morning and do not carry over from week to week.

***Maximum number of entrances per week to the Food Zoo when all Weekly Meal Plan Funds are spent in the Food Zoo only.

****Students can add funds to their Bear Bucks account at any time.  Bear Bucks balances carry over from Fall to Spring Semester when purchasing the same meal plan or one of higher value.  They do not carry over from one academic year to the next, unless an additional $20 or more have been purchased prior to the end of spring semester. 

1 A meal plan is a pre-purchase of meals and services for an entire semester.
