The Resident Dining Program – Leave the Cooking to Us

A student’s life can get a little hectic, and the last thing you want to worry about is cooking. In order to help you in manage your time and provide you with a complete array of dining choices, FAU’s Dining Services provides convenience and flexibility, allowing you to choose from a variety of food choices and meal plans.

The Centre Marketplace

Picture yourself enjoying an array of delicious menu options in the Centre Marketplace, conveniently located adjacent to the Student Union. Unlike a traditional cafeteria, the Centre Marketplace features restaurant-style concepts prepared right in front of you all day long. You can choose when and what you want to eat in this all-you-care-to-eat facility. The Centre Marketplace is open for meals from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday
– Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekends. (Hours of operation are subject to change).

Select from creative entrees and flavors from around the world, which are presented in styles and portions that will suit everyone’s tastes. Order a charbroiled burger hot off the grill, a hearty sandwich from Bocadillos, or a freshly made salad from Wild Greens. Home-style baked goods and fragrant coffees are available at Pastelitos Café and Terre Ve serves up a wide selection of menu items that follow strict vegetarian guidelines. You may even want to watch as our chefs prepare sizzling fajitas or omelets at the Menutainment station.

Residence Hall Meal Plan Requirements and Options

Since our residence halls do not provide adequate cooking facilities for individual and regular food preparation, all students living in University residence halls are required to participate in the Resident Dining program. Each Dining Meal Plan includes a certain number of meals per week, plus two free guest meals per semester. Some of the meal plans also include “Flex Bucks,” each worth one dollar. The Flex Bucks provide you with the ability to eat meals, without needing cash, at any of our on-campus retail dining operations, including the restaurants in the Breezeway Café. The amount of Flex Bucks varies per plan. Flex Bucks expire at the end of each semester.

Residents are required to complete a Campus Meal Plan Contract in addition to their Housing contract. Residents may complete and submit the contract online, print a copy and submit it by mail. Students assigned to the residence halls who do not make a  selection will automatically be placed on a meal plan and will be charged accordingly. Reasonable accommodations will be made if you require assistance meeting nutritional, medical or religious needs. Please contact Dining Services if you need such accommodations.
