Meal Plans for Nonresidents

The quality and convenience of Housing and Dining Services' dining centers make a meal plan smart for all
K-Staters — not just on-campus residents. We offer meal plans for off-campus students and K-State faculty and staff. You can eat at Derby or Kramer dining center, both of which are just a few minutes' walk from either side of campus. Both locations are all-you-care-to-eat, and offer a diverse selection of meal options to choose from daily.

  • A meal is defined as any entrance into the dining center or On-the-Go meal.
  • These meals are available at the Derby and Kramer Dining Centers.
