Dining Services

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, an 8-meals-per-week meal plan. Meal plans are for the academic year and are not cancelable after the beginning of the fall semester. Students beginning classes in the spring are billed for the spring semester only. If you would like more information on meal plans please reach out to us at housing@nwosu.edu. 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 $69.66 plus tax and may be used in the fall and spring semesters. A 5-meal card also is available for $35.82 plus tax.

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.

We offer a Happy Hour/Grumpy Hour on our Starbucks Grande or Venti size drinks each weekday from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m and 2:30-3:30 p.m.

The store also provides cold sandwiches and salads for the lunch rush, as well as lunch specials 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

Ranger Market is open to the public and accepts cash, checks and credit or debit cards.

7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
