A meal plan unlocks meals, coffee, snacks, and more at 45+ locations across campus. When you purchase your meal plan, your account will automatically be activated. All Meal Plans include Meal Swipes, most include Flex, and the Unlimited Plans have Cash Exchange conveniently loaded onto your GATORONE card.

Two Semester Commitment: All Residential Meal Plans are two-semester commitments. Your plan will automatically be renewed and charged for the Spring Semester.

Meal Plan Swipes

Use your swipes at our dining hall locations, where you can choose as much as you want to eat and dine in with us. The dining halls are also the best place to eat if you have a food allergy or intolerance. We have a variety of stations that accommodate vegan, vegetarian, and other specialty diets.


Flex are very flexible and can be used at all of our locations. Most meal plans include a certain dollar amount of Flex per semester, so you can use your meal swipes at the dining halls and Flex at all of our national brands. They spend dollar for dollar – and you get special discounts throughout the year while using them on campus.

Meal Exchange

If you purchase an Unlimited Orange 450, the Unlimited Blue 250, or the Unlimited 5-Day 375, you also get Meal Exchange swipe that can be used at select locations on campus. You can use one meal exchange per day at these locations – giving you swipe value in retail and saving some of your Flex.

*Meal plan components are subject to change. Any changes will be communicated via UF email address to those students who have selected a meal plan.
