On-Campus Meal Plans Fall/Spring

Lidstrom, Werner, Swensen and Mystic Hall Residents

Students living on campus in Lidstrom, Mystic, Swensen and Werner Halls must be on a full-time meal plan. Residents in these halls have two options for the fall and spring semesters:

Mystic Gold - $2,646.00 = 2,646 dining points per semester

Mystic Standard - $1,813.50 = 1,813.50 dining points per semester


Ritchie and Gate City Residents

Resident assistants and students living in the new apartment style residence halls of Ritchie or Gate City have the option to carry the above full-time Gold or Standard meal plan or the more basic Green or Light Plans.

Mystic Gold - see above

Mystic Standard - see above

Mystic Green - $1,102.50 = 1,102.50 dining points per semester

Mystic Light - $634 = 634 dining points per semester  


Contract and Payments

Your meal plan academic year contract is submitted at the same time as your residence hall contract. The full semester payment is due to Student Finance at move-in for the first semester and upon return from semester break for the second semester. The academic year runs from the resident hall move-in day in the Fall semester through the last day on the academic calendar for the Spring semester.


Refunds and Fees

Each time you use your BSC Mystic Identification card (Student ID), the total points used is subtracted from the balance of your declining balance account. Unused dining points are non-refundable, so it is important to utilize all points by the last day of each semester designated on the academic calendar.


To Pay For Meals After Contract Usage Has Been Met

Students may load Mystic Dollars on their Student ID card (accepted at Mystic Marketplace, Mystic Java and the BSC Bookstore) or use cash, credit card or check card.
