Gorlok Bucks

Gorlok Bucks require a separate contract and are not part of the meal plan. Gorlok Bucks may be used at selected off-campus restaurants to offer more variety and longer hours of service to campus residents. Gorlok Bucks can also be used at on-campus locations. If used on-campus, the purchase will be tax free and discounted for items purchased. All balances remaining on Gorlok Bucks will be forfeited after 18 months of inactivity. You may purchase Gorlok Bucks by completing the contract, which is an online form on the PatronWeb through Housing and Residential Life. Go to this web site: https://housing.webster.edu/PatronWeb.

Meal Plans for 2017–18

Blue and Gold Meal Plan
For 2017–18, only one meal plan is offered.

Cost = $2500 per semester. Students get $1700 in points to spend at any Dining Services location on campus. ($800 goes to University overhead).

This meal plan operates on an “all points” or “declining balance” basis. This offers students the ultimate in flexibility and spending options at our Campus Dining Services locations. This plan allows students to get whatever they want at any time when Dining Services is open. This is an a la carte’ plan, and any past restrictions such as meal exchanges or meal combos, have been eliminated.

Students can dine at Marletto’s, the Crossroads food court in the University Center, the Library Café featuring Kaldi’s, or the Simply-to-Go unit in the East Academic Building. There will no longer be an “all-you-care-to-eat” dining option at Marletto’s. Everything will be priced a la carte’ and you will only pay for what you get.

Points not used during the fall semester carry over to the spring semester. Points not used by the end of the academic year are forfeited.

Points on this meal plan cannot be used at off-campus restaurants.

Buy-Up Option – After a full meal plan is purchased, if you would like to add more points to your meal plan, you can get a 2-for-1 buy-up option. For every $100 in additional points purchased, you will get 200 points. This Buy-Up Option can be purchased at the Campus Dining Services offices in Maria Hall.

All students living in the residence halls and all first year students living on campus must purchase a meal plan for the entire year they reside on campus.
