Meal Plan Options

Prairie View A&M University strongly believes that on campus dining enhances a student’s educational experience by providing students an opportunity to develop close and supportive relationships, meet new people, and interact with faculty and staff in a non-classroom environment. Also, on-campus dining promotes health and informed dietary habits.

Because we recognize the different needs of the individual, the university offers a wide variety of dining venues, menus, hours of operation and meal plans. In addition, dining services offers nutritional information and guidance, vegan and vegetarian selections and special assistance with medically prescribed diets.

In order to meet your campus dining needs, the following meal plan options are available for the fall/spring academic year.  If you need to request a meal plan, log on to your panther tracks.

Appointments may be arranged to discuss dietary requirements and any modifications necessary for managing food consumption on campus. Students seeking dietary support for weight loss, diabetes, eating disorders, and other chronic conditions should contact a personal physician to obtain a diet outline.
