Meal Plan FAQ
How do I change my meal plan?
Meal plans can be changed by calling 587-6272 or by visiting the office of Campus Services in Doane. Meal plans can be changed the first two weeks of each semester.
What if I run out of debit dollars, can I add more?
Debit dollars cannot be added to your account, but you can add more Denison Dollars.
What if I have special dietary needs?
If you have questions about dining services meeting your dietary needs, please contact Paul Mixa, Bon Appetit’s General Manager at 740-587-6690.

Your debit dollars may be used in Slayter. Slayter is open Sunday – Thursday until 1 a.m. and Friday and Saturday until 2:30 a.m.
How can I be sure my student will have enough meals on their meal plan?
There is a dining plan spending guide on the Denison website that will help students budget their debit dollars here.
What if I am living in an apartment this year?
Students living in apartments are not required to be on a meal plan. However we do offer two meal plans designed to fit the needs of students in apartments and graduating seniors.
Do my debit dollars roll over from semester to semester?
Yes, debit dollars roll over from semester to semester as long as you stay on a meal plan. They do not roll over from school year to school year.
If I am on the Big Red plan (unlimited) can I swipe in a friend for meal?

Bon Appétit Joins Forces with Hampton Creek
Hampton Creek’s groundbreaking products are all-natural and delicious! Instead of eggs, they use more sustainable ingredients (like yellow peas in Just Mayo and sorghum flour in Just Cookies) to create scrumptious foods with great texture and flavor – that are also better for the earth.
By moving to Hampton Creek products, each year we collectively:
- Avoid eating 12 million g of saturated fat and 806 million mg of sodium
- Save 4 million square feet of land and 245 million quarts of water
- Prevent almost 500,000 lbs. of carbon emissions
