Students at Chick-fil-A

Meal Plans & FLEX

Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all so our meal plans were designed to meet your unique needs. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got options to fit every appetite.

We are very proud to offer some of the least expensive meal plans in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education system, while still being able to maintain one of the highest quality food service programs in Pennsylvania. Our meal plans are very cost effective and offer several options of "traditional" and "block" meal plans for students to choose from.

FLEX Dollars

FLEX is a declining balance account available to use with campus dining services. All traditional and block meal plans include either $250 or $300 in FLEX at the start of each semester. Uses of FLEX include, but are not limited to, supplementing a meal beyond cash equivalency, grabbing a snack between classes, getting your favorite gourmet coffee or even buying a gift basket for someone special.

Upper campus, off-campus or commuter students can opt to purchase meals using FLEX only. To start using FLEX without a meal plan, you can voluntarily add funds on a one-time basis in MyHousing Self-Service at any time throughout the semester or select one of the FLEX only dining plans below. These FLEX only dining plans are billed like traditional and block meal plans and will be reassigned from the fall to the spring semester.

Plan Description Rate

H1

$250 FLEX per semester $250 per semester

H2

$500 FLEX per semester $500 per semester

H3

$1,000 FLEX per semester $1,000 per semester
  • Accepted at all campus dining facilities.
  • FLEX can be used during the fall and spring semesters only. Any balance remaining at the end of the spring semester is non-refundable, non-transferable and will be forfeited.
  • Funds can be added through MyHousing Self-Service ($25 minimum deposit). FLEX added once the semester starts will be available to use within 8 hours. A charge will be added to your MyHusky account within 2 business days and should be paid within 10 days.

Note: Students who selected a meal plan will automatically be credited with the FLEX associated with the selected meal plan. Voluntarily adding FLEX should only be done by students electing to only use FLEX for meals or students with a meal plan who are low on their original credit of FLEX associated with their meal plan.

Husky Gold

Husky Gold is a campus-only, multi-purpose debit account administered by the University Card Center. Available to all active students, faculty and staff of Bloomsburg University via their university identification card, Husky Gold is accepted throughout campus at dining, retail and service locations.

BU Bucks

BU Bucks is a prepaid dining service account offered to Bloomsburg University faculty and staff only. BU Bucks can be redeemed at any on-campus dining location by using your university-issued faculty or staff identification card. Deposits can be made by visiting a cashier at the Scranton Commons, Husky Lounge, Roongo's or Monty's or by placing a BU Bucks order online via bloomucatering.catertrax.com Deposits made throughout the semester will receive a 10% bonus.

General Meal Plan Information

Because traditional residence halls do not have sufficient accommodations for students to cook on their own, we require students living on lower campus to have an A, B, C or E meal plan.

Students living in an apartment on upper campus, off-campus or commuting have the option to select any of our meal plans or they can choose to exclusively use FLEX or Husky Gold when dining on campus. Off-campus and commuting students will need to complete the dining only agreement in MyHousing Self-Service prior to selecting a meal plan.

  • All meal plans are billed on a semester basis.
  • Meal plans from the fall semester will be automatically reassigned for the following spring semester.
  • Weekly Meal plans can be increased at anytime, however, meal plan reductions or cancellations are only permitted during the first week of the fall and spring semesters.
  • There are no refunds, reimbursements or adjustments made in price or meals as a result of the university closing for planned or unplanned events, academic, work or athletic team conflicts. If a conflict arises, a take-away meal may be provided
  • Meal plan counts reset each week for traditional meal plans and each semester for block meal plans. Any unused meals will not carry over into the next week/semester and will be forfeited.
  • Meal plan and stored value account usage can be viewed online in the Husky Gold eAccounts portal

Meal Plan Enhancements

Included with all traditional and block meal plans.

Cash equivalency is an enhancement to meal plans that provides students with ability to use their meal plan in locations other than the Scranton Commons by providing a cash amount that is credited towards the purchase of food items. However, it was not designed to replace the main dining program offered in the Scranton Commons.

For example, if you purchase food from Subway, a "meal" will be deducted from your meal plan balance and a cash equivalent value will be applied toward the total cost of items purchased. Any outstanding balance can then be paid for with FLEX, Husky Gold, cash, or credit card. There is no reimbursement or crediting of any cash equivalent amount that is in excess of the item(s) purchased.

The cash equivalency rate for 2021 - 2022 is $5.90.

Guest meals can be used to redeem a meal, from the plan's available balance, at any food service location that offers all-you-care to eat or cash equivalency.

Each traditional meal plan includes ten (10) guest meals per semester while block meal plans include five (5) guest meals per semester.

Meal exchanges are a predetermined food and beverage combination available at Monty’s and Husky Lounge for the value of a meal swipe.

Sick meals are available for students who aren't feeling well enough to come to a dining facility in person. These meals can be picked up by another student if accompanied with a notice from the Student Health Center or doctor. Please contact a dining service manager for details.

Take-away meals are available for students whose schedule requires them to be off campus during meal times. Students must coordinate with the dining service management at least 24 hours in advance to schedule a take away meal.
