University of Oregon rolls out new meal plan for off-campus students

New meal plans will save students an average of $2.50 per meal.

Oct. 9—The benefits of off-campus housing for students usually outweigh staying in the residence halls but with the perks come the extra responsibilities, such as buying and cooking your own food. UO Housing looks to change that by offering a new plan for off-campus students starting this year.

“We were looking at what we were offering our students and faculty, and we wanted to see how we could expand our options even more for other students,” said UO Housing Marketing Director Lauren Miller.

The UO is the first university in the state to offer a meal plan designated specifically for off-campus students. Meal plans range from 10 to 100 meals per year.
