Residential meal plans
Included with your room and meals fee is the default On Campus 15 meal plan, which provides up to 15 meals per week in Siegfried Dining Hall and $175 in Basil Bucks per semester.
For students living at the University Edge, the University Edge 10 is included with your room and meals fee, providing up to 10 meals per week in Siegfried Dining and $100 in Basil Bucks per semester.
Additionally, in partnership with Notre Dame Campus Dining, students have the ability to purchase the Any Campus 19 meal plan, which:
- Grants you 19 meals per week at Siegfried Dining Hall at Holy Cross College or North Dining Hall or South Dining Hall at the University of Notre Dame
- Includes $100 in Basil Bucks per semester
- Costs $625 per semester extra
Students can request to upgrade to Any Campus 19 at any point (with the $600 prorated), but after the add/drop date, no meal plan changes are permitted until the next semester.
To request an Any Campus 19 Plan upgrade, please email Dean Andrew Polaniecki. Your student account will be charged for the meal plan.
Commuter meal plans
Non-residential students can purchase commuter meal plans through Holy Cross College. These plans can be purchased at any time, but after the add/drop date, cannot be canceled until the next semester. The two commuter meal plan options are 10 meals per week for $1,125 per semester or 5 meals per week for $675 per semester.
To request a Commuter 5 or Commuter 10 meal plan, please email Dean Andrew Polaniecki. Your student account will be charged.
Basil Bucks are a Saint’s best friend
Basil Bucks are:
- An extension of the on campus dining board plan
- Accepted at Ave Brew Café, along with most Notre Dame Campus Dining locations (excluding Legends and Sorin’s)
- Placed on your ID card at the beginning of each semester; any remaining balance expires at the end of each semester
Anyone (students or parents who have a parent portal created) wishing to add additional Basil Bucks onto their Holy Cross College account can do so by logging into the Portal.
On the homepage, under the Residence Life tab, click Purchase Basil Bucks. Under desired transactions drop box, select Basil Bucks Payment. Enter the desired amount and select submit payment. Click next to confirm the purchase. Then you will need to enter credit card information.
