The impressive Student Union/Recreation Center (SURC) brings with it a myriad of choices in cuisine and costs, that promises to keep your tummy full of nutritious foods without taxing your pocketbook.
Dine at up to eight distinctly different dining locations this summer, including:
Students can also use meal plan money at any on-campus espresso bar or convenience store, but the charges do come out of your meal plan account and are high-end retail prices. These options include:
If you are the kind of person who wants, and will eat, three square meals a day, Holmes Dining Room (All You Can Eat Service) may be the option for you.
Not fond of breakfast? The same plan for lunch and dinner only is available for the entire summer session.
Only going to be in Ellensburg for a few weeks or not sure you want to eat on campus every day? Students can put any amount of money on a Connection Card, in $20 increments, throughout the summer.
So, for example, students could put $189 on their cards at the beginning of the summer. This would cover lunch and dinner at Holmes Dining Room for the first two six-day sessions. If you found, at the end of session two, that the plan was working well for you, then money could be added to cover as many additional days or weeks as you wished. If you found that you had money left, you may want to reconsider the amount you put on your Connection Card for the next six-day session. The other advantage of the Connection Card is that it eliminates sales tax costs you will pay if you buy your meals with cash in those same on-campus facilities.
For more information or to set up your meal plan, please contact the SURC Connection Card office, open Monday thru Friday 8 am to 5 pm, at (509) 963-2711.
