What is a Block Plan? 

Block plans provide a specific number of meals each semester for use at the 921 Dining Hall or through Meal Trades, if applicable. Unused meals do not roll over and are forfeited at the end of the semester. Use of a Meal Trade negates use of a meal at the 921 Dining Hall within the same meal period. 

•    Block 304 includes 5 Meal Trades*, plus $350 discretionary
•    Block 240 includes 5 Meal Trades*, plus $375 discretionary
•    Block 192 includes 5 Meal Trades*, plus $425 discretionary
•    Block 20 Apartment, plus $750 discretionary

Meal trades will be used to purchase (1) entree, (1) side and (1) drink in designated retail locations. These locations will include all Lacava stations (with the exception of Starbucks Express,) Harry's, The Nest and Currito's. 

*Trades are per week.
