Dining Options

COCC is excited to offer a quality dining services experience that is more than great food. It is a community experience centered on culinary expertise, fresh ingredients, healthy options and a shared sense of environmental and social responsibility.

All students living in on-campus student housing at COCC are required to select one of the three meal plans. Below are the 2023-24 rates.

The meal credits give students access to the dining hall during an established mealtime. Meal credits can only be applied to dining hall meals. The flex dollars are used similar to a declining balance debit card and permit the student to purchase meals at the Coats Campus Center dining hall or quick-service options within the cafe and market.

Adjustments to Plan: A student may adjust their meal plan within the first week of a term by contacting the Housing Office. After such time, the meal plan is not adjustable.

Check Balance: Students can check their balance with a cashier in the dining hall or in the cafe.
