Campus Dining strives to offer a welcoming environment to meet your fellow students while you dine on freshly prepared from-scratch foods while expanding your community through a diversity of food and experiences.  With two dining locations on campus, we strive to provide all of our guests with healthy and varied food options.  Our Dining Hall is the perfect place to catch up with friends while you venture to one of the many stations serving anything from made-to-order international fare, mouth-watering grilled items, and crispy salads to classic deli sandwiches and hot home-style entrées.  Maestro’s Café offers locally-roasted fair trade coffees and teas as well as a host of refreshing smoothies, grab and go meal options, soups and hot cereals, and a wide selection of bagels and pastries. A great atmosphere surrounds you as you sit and relax with your hot (or iced) beverage, catch up with friends, or work on a class project.

Meal Plans

We know that all students dine differently. Whatever your dining preference, we have a plan for you.

Johns Hopkins meal plans are comprised of three parts: meal swipes, dining dollars, and guest passes.

Meal Swipes: Meal swipes are the primary part of the Anytime and 19/14/10 meals per week plans.

  • Each entry into the Dining Hall or Homewood’s Fresh Food Cafe is counted as a meal swipe.
  • Meal swipes are reset each Sunday morning for the next week.
  • Unused swipes on the 19/14/10 meals per week plans are forfeited each week.

Dining Dollars: Dining Dollars are a dollar-for-dollar tender that can be used in dining retail locations such as Maestro’s Café, Charles Street Market and Levering Hall. These funds are designed to complement the meal plans by allowing students to purchase snacks, a morning or late night coffee or groceries to prepare a special meal for friends in their residence hall. Additional Dining Dollars can be added at the time of meal plan enrollment or online.

Guest Passes: Guest passes are bonus meals that can be used to treat your friends or family when they visit you in Charm City.  Two guest passes are included with the Anytime and 19/14/10 meals per week plans each semester.  Any unused guest passes expire at the end of each semester.

Meal Plan Eligibility

Meal plan eligibility is aligned with class year:

First Year Undergraduates: First Year Undergraduates are assigned to the Anytime Meal Plan.  This plan was created to help ease the transition from home to campus and to allow students to focus on their academics and community building instead of on washing dishes and cooking their own meals.

The Anytime Meal Plan is designed to allow students to access the Dining Hall or Fresh Food Café anytime they are open.  There are no limits to the number of dine-in swipes for this plan.  This plan includes $195 Dining Dollars.

Sophomores and Transfer Students: Sophomores and Transfer students have the choice of three different plans: Anytime Meal Plan, 19 Meal Plan, and 14 Meal Plan.  These plans were created to offer greater flexibility for students who have completed one year of college and are experienced in juggling a class and co-curricular workload.

The 19 Meal Plan provides students the ability to dine 19 times per week, up to four times a day, in the Dining Hall or Fresh Food Café.  This plan includes $295 Dining Dollars.

The 14 Meal Plan provides students the ability to dine 14 times per week, up to four times a day, in the Dining Hall or Fresh Food Café.  This plan includes $395 Dining Dollars.

Juniors, Seniors, and Graduate Students: Juniors, Seniors, and Graduate Students have the choice of four different plans: Anytime Meal Plan, 19 Meal Plan, 14 Meal Plan, and 10 Meal Plan.

The 10 Meal Plan provides students the ability to dine 10 times per week, up to four times a day, in the Dining Hall or Fresh Food Café.  This plan includes $495 Dining Dollars.

Commuter students: Commuter students have the option of choosing the Block 40 Plan.  The Block 40 Plan provides 40 meal swipes each semester (approximately 2-3 meals per week) for use in the Dining Hall or Fresh Food Café.  This plan includes $200 Dining Dollars.  If you are a commuter student and are interested in signing up for the Block 40 Plan or any of the residential meal plans, click HERE.
