Plan Options

The campus living experience immerses you in a world of collaborative learning and living. Students who live on campus are more likely to get involved, be satisfied with their experience, and more likely to graduate. All students attending Murray State University are required to live on campus for 2 years, 4 full semesters (excluding summers). During that time, students are also required to purchase one of our meal plans, providing convenient dining options and ensuring you never miss a meal.

Pay for your plan: After making your meal plan selection, the cost of that plan is added to your tuition bill, which means scholarships and financial aid may be applied toward covering this cost.

Each meal plan is valid for one semester. Flex dollars remaining at the end of the fall semester will roll to the spring semester providing another meal/flex plan is in place at the start of the spring semester and stays active for the term of the semester. Unused flex dollars will not roll at the end of the spring semester.

Meal plan requirements: 
First year students: Racer Premium, Gold Access 19, Blue Access 10.
Second year students: Racer Premium, Gold Access 19, Blue Access 10, Dunker Deluxe.
Third year students and commuters: May purchase any plan. No requirement.
