Meal Plans and Rates

K-State food has once again landed in the Top 20 nationwide. The Princeton Review's "The Best 386 Colleges" has ranked K-State's campus food at No. 13 in its 2021 issue. It's pretty rare for campus meals to be made from scratch on location. 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 Jardine Apartments residents, 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 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.

Dining center hours and menus are available to be viewed at any time. We do not serve a Sunday dinner meal in the dining centers.
