At Willamette University, we believe dining service plays an important role in the wellness and sense of community that makes our campus unique. Meals are prepared from scratch using fresh ingredients — all in a socially responsible manner that benefits our community, our guests and our environment.
Our dining service provider, Bon Appétit, takes special care to offer students a wide variety of entrée items (including vegetarian, vegan, and made without gluten). You can view the current week’s menus through their website as well as other helpful information.
Willamette Dining and Commuter Plans
For current pricing information, please see the Housing Rates page.
Students select their Dining Plan when they sign their housing agreement the academic year. All students living in a residence hall have a dining plan. Willamette offers dining plans based on the number of meals, either per week (10-19 plans) or per semester (commuter plans), and assumes one meal per meal period. All plans include Dining Flex Dollars. Flex Dollars are a value placed on your student ID card that can be used like a declining balance. One point equals $1 in value. The 19-Meal Plan allows you to enter Goudy Commons during any meal period. You also may opt to use your lunch, Monday-Friday, meal equivalency at Blitz Market for the daily entrée.
We also offer commuter plans to non-residential students, upperclassmen, and graduate students. Commuter plans are also available to faculty, staff, and CST students. The two commuter options include either 40-meal or 25-meal block plans with $250 or $150 Flex Dollars, respectively. So, students can have any 40 or 25 meals per semester at any time in Goudy Commons or a lunch, Monday-Friday, at Blitz Market. Dining Flex Dollars can be spent at Goudy Commons, Blitz Market or Rick’s Café.

Flex Dollars remaining at the completion of spring semester are non-refundable. No credit or refund is issued for meals not taken.
Additional funds may be added to your Compass Card for use throughout campus. When Compass Cash is used at a Bon Appétit venue, Bon Appétit adds a 10% bonus to the total dollar amount. If you run out of Dining Flex Points, be sure to add Compass Cash to your Card instead of using cash for meals to get the 10% bonus!
