Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do I need to buy a Meal Plan?
Longwood University and Longwood Dining want to allow the Longwood students the opportunity to fully experience campus life and to stay connected to the campus community. The on-campus dining locations help to build community through socialization.

If you live in Longwood Managed Apartments (the Landings or Lancer Park), you must sign up for a plan, however, you have more meal plan options to choose from.

For commuting students (not living in Longwood managed residences) you may choose from any of the meal plan options that are available. You are not required to purchase a meal plan, however, we strongly encourage you to save money and experience campus life with a meal plan. View your Meal Plan options.


Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
No. You will need to sign up for your meal plan each semester.

Will unused Meal Swipes or Bonus Dollars roll over? 
Meal Swipes will not roll over to the next semester. Bonus Dollars will transfer from fall to spring if a meal plan is purchased both semesters, but it will not roll over from spring to fall. Any unused Bonus Dollars will expire at the end of the spring semester and are not refundable.
