Residence Hall Plans

There are four meal plans available to residents of Curry, Eddy or Guadalupe Hall. According to University Residence Policy, if you live in a residence hall you are required to sign up for one of the following meal plans:

  • Carte Blanche (unlimited number of meals paired with $150 in Flex Dollars)
  • Option 19 (19 meals per week paired with $250 in Flex Dollars)
  • Option 14 (14 meals per week paired with $450 in Flex Dollars)
  • Option 10 (10 meals per week paired with $650 in Flex Dollars)

When you apply for housing, choose the option that works best for you. Flex Dollars carry over from the fall to the spring semester and expire on the last day of finals week in May (view the finals schedule). Meal plans expire on the last day of finals week every semester.

Carte Blanche Meal Plan

If you have a Carte Blanche meal plan, you can use your ENMU ID to enter the Crossroads Café Dining Hall as many times a day as you want during the normal hours of operation (see Crossroads Café hours below).

Option 19, 14 and 10 Meal Plans

The Option Meal Plans give you a set number of meals per week paired with a varying number of Flex Dollars. These plans give you flexibility to use your meal plan funds to not only eat in the Crossroads Café, but also at the various dining venues on campus. If you are on one of these plans that have a limited number of meals per week (Option 19, 14 or 10), each time you swipe your ID card to enter the Crossroads Cafe, that counts as one of your meals for the week. Meals are allotted for the week; additional meals beyond your designated number cannot be used.
