Food Service

Concordia University Chicago’s food service, provided by Sodexo, includes a wide variety of flexibility and options for students. A meal plan is automatically included in the Residential Package for students living on campus. The default meal plan for that package is the Block 225 Plan which consists of 225 meals + $300 of Cougar Cash per semester.

Cougar Cash is a declining balance that can be used for a la carte purchases in one of CUC’s a la carte locations: the Library Café, Christopher Center Café, Big Cats Smash-N-Shake, and Subway in the Cougar Den. The meals are used in the Crossroads Dining Room for the purchase of lunch or dinner. 

Additional meal plans include the following (prices may vary):

Meal Plan Meals per Semester Cougar Cash per Semester
All Access Plan Unlimited Meals + 10 guest meals $200 per semesster
Block 125 Plan 125 meals $400 per semester

With these plans, students are allowed to utilize an unlimited number of allotted meals at any given mealtime in the Crossroads Dining Room. Any unused Cougar Cash carries over between fall and spring semester, but not between any other semesters.

Students involved in full-time, off-site student teaching or internships are able to receive a reduced rate meal option. Approval must be given by the Director of University Housing Services.
