Yes! It's a great value and it is Dallas Baptist University’s policy that all designated Campus Residents purchase a meal plan for the Fall and Spring semesters.

Flex Dollars are carried over from the fall to the spring when a new meal plan is purchased in the spring. They are not carried over from year to year.  Patriot Dollars will remain on your ID card as long as you are enrolled or employed at Dallas Baptist University.

Yes! Changing to a bigger or smaller meal plan can be done during the first week of school. All other changes must be requested by the Director of Resident Life at (214) 333-5455.

Patriot Dollars are a smart and easy way to make purchases at any dining location on campus. Patriot Dollars are stored on your student ID card. You may purchase Patriot Dollars at any time by calling (214) 333-5446 or visiting the DBU Dining Services office in the Crowley Building, lower level.

Flex Dollars are cash values included in the traditional meal plans. They work like a pre-paid debit card with funds kept on your student ID card. Patriot Dollars are cash equivalent dollars that may be added at any time of the year and can be used at any on-campus dining location.

Block meals are carried over from the fall to the spring.  They are not carried over from year to year.

If you live in the Williamsburg Village Townhomes, Colonial Village Apartments, or off-campus, you can purchase a traditional meal plan through the Residence Life Office in the Crowley Complex. We have also designed a special meal plan just for you called Colonial Plans.
