Meal Plans

Our goal is to please the various “tastes” of our guests. We have something for everyone because we believe in the importance of good food. Great nutrition helps you to perform better academically and fosters a good outlook on life.

Meal Plan FAQs


All students residing in traditional residence halls (FAMU Towers, FAMU Village, Sampson Hall, Young Hall ) are required to sign-up for a Mandatory Meal Plan. Commuter meal plans are available to off-campus students and students residing in non-traditional residence halls (Palmetto South and Phase III), but they are not required.


Each meal plan comes with a variety of Flex Dollars (dining currency) options. These funds are provided with most meal plans (check your meal plan contract for exact amount per plan) and are available to use in any of our on-campus dining locations. Flex Dollars work just like a debit card; choose your items for purchase and the total price of items is deducted from your balance when you present your FAMU student ID card at the register.


Contact the Rattler Card/Meal Plan Office, which is located in the Student Services Center at (850) 599-8366 for cancellations and changes. Prices are subject to change.
