University Meadows Residents

Students living in University Meadows apartments have meal plan options available but are not required to purchase one.

Red and Gold Meal Plan

The Red and Gold Meal Plan is designed for on-the-go commuter students. It's a Declining Balance meal plan available in four purchase levels (see below). You can get it by charging to your UMSL student account. There is a $10.00 administrative fee that goes toward university operations. Purchase forms are available online at Please contact the Student Affairs Business Center at 314-516-6685, or 180 MSC, with any questions. You will need your TritonCard to purchase. Declining Balance dollars are added to your TritonCard and work similar to a debit card. The cost of what you purchase will be deducted from your Declining Balance account as you use it. Declining Balance dollars can be used at all Sodexo Campus Dining Locations: The Nosh, Provincial House Dining Hall, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Triton Treats, Simply To Go Cafe, Cafe TJ, Southside Cafe, and the Oak Hall C-Store. Declining Balance rolls over from Fall to Spring, but is cleared out at the end of the Spring semester. A summer plan can also be purchased for use during the summer semester, all funds must be used by August 31st or they will be cleared out for the next semester. This plan is only available during the first four weeks of the semester.
