Welcome to University of Idaho Marketplace

Community Meal Plans

We understand our student, faculty, and staff lifestyle and dining needs are unique. Our mission is to make dining on campus a complementary experience to attending classes or going to work at the University of Idaho.

With that in mind, there are Community Meal Plans centered on providing university community members a great value and convenience for every Vandals’ lifestyle.

A Gold Meal (formerly Meal Exchange) adds variety by allowing you to exchange some swipes from The Eatery for meals in other campus venues, such as Qdoba, True Burger, and Einstein Bros Bagles.

The Community Five/Three/One plans are good for the semester you purchaes them in and expire at the end of the semester. Dining Dollars and Meal Packs are good for the entire academic year and expire on May 11, 2024. Summer Meal Packs are good for the summer begining May 15, 2023 and expire on August 15, 2023.

Summer 2023: May 15, 2023 - August 15, 2023
Fall 2023 Semester: Aug 16, 2023 - Dec 16, 2023
Spring 2024 Semester: Jan 7, 2024 - May 11, 2024

Students living in the residence halls can add or make changes to their meal plan by contacting Housing & Residential Life via email at
