How Do Residential Dining Meal Plans Work?

Residential Dining Meal Periods

UA Little Rock Dining Services offer three Residential Dining Meal Periods at Trojan Cafeteria during weekdays and two Residential Dining Meal Periods at Trojan Cafeteria during weekends. Continuous Dining is available for purchase by all UA Little Rock Resident Dining Students and will serve fast casual menu options. Cost of entry during Continuous Dining hours is one Meal Swipe.

Weekday Residential Dining Meal Periods

Breakfast: 7:00 A.M. – 10:45 A.M.

Expanded Continental Breakfast 9:30 A.M. – 10:45 A.M.

Lunch: 10:45 A.M. – 5:00 P.M.

Express Lunch 2:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.

Dinner: 5:00 P.M. – 7:30 P.M.

Weekend Residential Dining Meal Periods

Brunch: 10:30 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.

Dinner: 5:00 P.M. – 7:30 P.M.

Carte Blanche Unlimited Plus Dining Option

Students with Carte Blanche Meal Plans will have unlimited access to continuous dining only at Trojan Café. Continuous Dining will be offered on Weekdays from 7:00 A.M. until 7:30 P.M. During Continuous Dining hours, students with the Carte Blanche Meal Plan will be allowed multiple entries to Trojan Café with one Meal Swipe per Meal Period. For example: A student with the Carte Blanche Meal Plan visits Trojan Café during the Breakfast Meal Period at 7:15 A.M. The student then visits Trojan Café for a mid-morning snack at 9:20 A.M. and again at 10:30 A.M. The student used one Meal Swipe during Breakfast Meal Period for multiple entries to Trojan Café. This action may be repeated an unlimited number of times for each Meal Period.

Block Meal Plan Dining Option

Block Meal Plans allow Resident Dining Students an allotted number of meals to use at their own pace throughout the semester. For example: During the Fall semester, a student chooses the 128 Block Meal Plan with $500 in Trojan Express (Flex) Dollars. The student will have 128 Meal Swipes to use, at their own pace, throughout the entire Fall semester. If the student uses 128 meals by October 1, they will no longer have Meal Swipe options available. In lieu of Meal Swipes, the student may utilize the allotted $500 in Trojan Express Dollars to purchase meals at any on-campus retail dining location and to purchase entry to Trojan Café.

Students with Block Meal Plans may use multiple Meal Swipes per Meal Period. Any additional attempts to use a Block Meal Plan during Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner Meal Periods will result in either an additional Meal Swipe, the cost of the meal being deducted from the student’s Trojan Express (Flex) Dollars balance, or a declined transaction if the student has exhausted allotted Meal Swipes and Trojan Express (Flex) Dollars balance.

Additional Residential Dining Options

Trojan Express (Flex) Dollars are university currency equivalent to $1 USD. Trojan Express Dollars can be used at Commons Market located at Residential Housing Complex, Business Brew located at Reynold’s Business Building, Library Café located at Ottenheimer Library, and any dining location on UA Little Rock Campus. Trojan Express Dollars may also be used in lieu of a Meal Swipe. Additional Trojan Express Dollars may be purchased through Campus Living or with Dining Services online at https://shop-ualr.sodexomyway.com/.

Meal Swipe Exchange is an added value available for all Residential Dining Meal Plans. A Meal Swipe Exchange allows Resident Dining Students to exchange a Meal Swipe entry to Trojan Café for a Meal Swipe Exchange menu option at any on-campus retail dining location: Trojan Bistro and Tres Habaneros located in DSC Food Court; W.O.W. Café located at Residential Housing Complex; and SubConnection located in EIT Building. Only one Meal Swipe Exchange can be used during each meal period. Each Meal Swipe Exchange will be deducted from the student’s Meal Plan option. A list of Meal Swipe Exchange menu options may be found at UA Little Rock Dining Services’ website.

Meal Swipe Exchange Meal Periods at on-campus retail dining locations differ from Residential Dining Meal Periods.

Students with the Carte Blanche Meal Plan may use their unlimited resident dining option in combination with a Meal Swipe Exchange option at any retail location. The student will be allowed to use a Meal Swipe Exchange option at any on-campus dining retail location as well as visit Trojan Café for unlimited dining. For example: The student uses a Meal Swipe Exchange option at W.O.W. Café during Lunch Meal Period at 11:15 A.M. The student then decides to visit Trojan Café at 2:30 P.M. and again at 4:00 P.M. The student can use a Meal Swipe Exchange as well as enjoy unlimited access to Trojan Café during each Meal Period when Meal Swipe Exchange options are available.

Students with the Carte Blanche Meal Plan cannot use a Meal Swipe Exchange at multiple on-campus dining retail locations within the same meal period (i.e. the student cannot use a Meal Swipe Exchange during Lunch Meal Period at W.O.W. Café and Trojan Bistro).

Premium Food Events is a unique dining experience offered throughout each semester. Premium Food Events offer a variety of premium foods (such as steak, ribs, seafood, etc.) for students to enjoy bi-weekly. Music, karaoke, games, photobooths, and prize giveaways are also featured during Premium Food Events. Cost of entry is one Meal Swipe. A calendar of events may be found at UA Little Rock Dining Services’ website.

Unused Meals: Block Meal Plans and Carte Blanche Meal Plans do not roll over to the following semester. Block Meal Plans will not replenish once a student has used their allotted number of meals for the applicable semester. Trojan Express Dollars associated with Block Meal Plans and Carte Blanche Meal Plans will roll over to the Spring semester and will expire on the last day of finals during the applicable Spring semester.
