Dining / Meal Plans
Are you concerned about what would happen with your dining/meal plans if campus closed due to a hurricane?
When do dining locations close?
Campus Dining operations will be reviewed by FGCU Business Services, the FGCU Cabinet, and the current campus dining operator to make the best decision based on the needs of campus as well as the safety of the operators and diners.
Are meal plans used during sheltering?
There are various situational sheltering operations that mean different degrees of feeding. In case of an emergency (such as a hurricane) where FGCU is housing students on campus, students will be fed to the best of the University's ability. There will be no out of pock meal related costs to the students who remain in housing and are fed by the University during an emergency.
Do students get credit for days the campus is closed on meal plans?
This will be a situational call. During Hurricane Irma, the University extended its class schedule which opened up additional dates for meal plan users tp utilize their plans. Students who have a meal plan are not typically reimbursed for "lost" meals during a campus emergency closure as they can use those meals during the remainder of the semester. This could change depending on the extent of the closure.
