Living On Campus
Dining Services are provided by Chartwell’s in both the traditional cafeteria setting of Coronado Café and the more fast-food atmosphere of the Student Center Snack Bar - the Ranger Market.
You’ll need to have, at minimum, a 8 meals per week meal plan. To determine room and meal costs, visit Paying for College.
Meal cards for off-campus students, commuters and University employees are available for purchase at the cafeteria and Ranger Market. They are good for 10 meals and are $65.00 - plus tax and may be used in the fall and spring semesters.
Coronado Café is attached to Coronado Hall and offers a number of different food stations where you can decide what you’d like to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Breakfast Options: omelets, hash browns, biscuits, bacon/sausage, eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, (and make your own waffles at any meal).
Lunch and Dinner Options: the main entrée for the day; grilled/fried foods such as hamburgers, french fries, chicken tenders, hot dogs, grilled cheese and more; pasta; baked potato; fried rice; pizza; sandwiches; salad bar; soup; yogurt/pudding; fruit; desserts.
For all meals the cafeteria serves milk (2%, chocolate, and skim), soda, juices (apple, grape, orange), coffee and fruit water.
Food may not be taken out of the cafeteria with the exception of an apple or orange at the end of a meal. A "to go box" is also available if you do not have time to eat in the cafeteria. The box is plastic and requires a $5.00 deposit. The box can be used as often as needed, and upon its return the deposit is refunded.

Student Center Ranger Market
Student Center Ranger Market is located in the heart of campus.
It was remodeled during the summer 2017 by food service provider Chartwells to become more of a convenvience store where our students, employees and the public can purchase anything from a candy bar to pain relievers.
Students with a meal plan may use their "flex dollars" in the Ranger Market. See more about meal plans and costs at Paying for College under the Undergraduate Students Costs tab.
The Ranger Market also now serves Starbucks brand drinks from lattes to frappuccinos, as well as different iccee flavors.
