Eating on Campus

Students who live in residence halls are required to purchase a meal plan. Students who live in one of the campus apartment complexes are required to purchase at least the $500 Declining Cash Balance plan. Henderson offers many options, and one of them is perfect for every student.

Opened in fall 2013, Henderson’s dining hall allows students, faculty and staff to choose from a variety of freshly prepared meals and self-serve options. Students also have options like Chick-fil-A, Starbucks and the Reddie Grill in the Garrison Student Union. Meal plans also include a declining cash balance to use in the student center or the dining hall on the weekends.
