Dining Options



Some students choose to get a University of Delaware meal plan.
In addition, all ELI housing options include access to kitchens, which enables students to prepare their own meals.

Meal plans

There are many on-campus dining options for ELI students.

You must purchase a Meal Plan at the ELI cashier’s window at 189 West Main Street.

For more information, go to the UD Dining meal plan pages, or visit the ELI cashier’s window.

Note: Any unused meals or dining points cannot be reimbursed to a student. These plans are only good for two sessions (approximately four months). If a plan is purchased half-way through one session, it will only be valid until the end of the following session.

Flex Account

A “Flex” account is a declining balance account. “Flex” can be used in all dining locations and in many other places on campus, such as the University Bookstore. Flex cannot be used as payment for ELI activities.

Advantages of Flex

  • Any unused Flex dollars can be reimbursed to the student after he/she has finished studying at the ELI.
  • There is no “expiration date” on Flex dollars.
  • Flex can be used as long as a student is enrolled in ELI or the University.

For more information, visit the Flex Account website.

You can go to the ELI Cashier’s window at 189 West Main Street to find out how to use Flex.
