Dining Plan Options 2013-2014

Grinnell Dining is proud of our national award-winning dining program located in the Joe Rosenfield '25 Center! A beautiful state-of-the-art marketplace dining facility is the centralized location for on-campus dining for students and other members and guests of the campus community. A wide variety of choices, food prepared to order, and a beautiful dining environment enhance the dining experience at Grinnell College. Even if you have moved off campus, consider signing up for a meal plan so that you can also be part of the student experience in the Marketplace.   As always, we welcome your input and comment.

Continuing for 2013-2014

Students with busy schedules may redeem a board meal for a meal-to-go from Out Takes, conveniently located in The Spencer Grill.  Guest meals, included with Plans 1-4, make it easy for students' family members and other visitors to enjoy an all-you-can-eat meal on campus, and the Dining Dollars Plus option is once again available, allowing you to add $100 in Dining Dollars to any other plan (spendable at The Spencer Grill or Marketplace).

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

All first-year students are required to participate in the Full Meal Plan (Plan 1) for their first semester. Second semester first-year students may choose between the Full Meal Plan (Plan 1) and the 15 Plus Meal Plan (Plan 2). Returning students have other options, depending on housing status.
