Meal Plans

Living where you learn means that eventually, you’ll need to eat. No worries. Temple University has two dining centers on the Main Campus: a more traditional cafeteria in the Louis J. Esposito Dining Center (adjacent to our Johnson and Hardwick Residence Halls) serving all-you-care-to-eat options, and the Valaida S. Walker Food Court located at the Howard Gittis Student Center serving food a la carte with a meal equivalency. The new dining hall at the Morgan Residential Hall and Dining Complex opened in the fall 2013.

Temple University Dining Services offers 18 different meal plans that can be used at any of our 15 different locations across Campus. Any student living on campus or commuting is able to sign up for a meal plan. We have several options for students to consider.
