Zorn Dining Commons

Zorn Dining Commons.

It is a campus policy that all resident students select a meal plan. There are two available, each with the opportunity of additional Flex for added flexibility of dining options. The first option is the 19-meal plan which provides nineteen meals per week.

The other, a 12-meal plan, provides twelve meals per week. Commuter students may also select a 5-meal plan (which can be used for any five meals during the week). Unused meals cannot be refunded or transferred.

With a meal plan you can enjoy our all-you-care-to-eat concept in our state-of-the-art facility. Food prepared and served in this facility must be consumed while dining at the Dining Commons. The only exception to this is any hand held cookie, ice cream cone or fruit being consumed as the student leaves the facility.

For added convenience, the meal plan can also be used in the Night Owl Café at lunch for the “Sizzler” and at lunch and dinner at the Hoot-n-Scoot for a ‘pick 4′ meal equivalency.

The Flex option allows students to use their ID card as a debit card for purchases at Lloyd’s Marketplace and the Bean & Bagel or any dining location on campus. Important: Flex balances left over from the Fall semester transfer to the Spring semester, but not to the following year. What is left unused at the end of the Spring semester is forfeited.

Students who live on campus choose their meal plan for the entire academic year. Commuter students or other students not required to be on a meal plan may contract their meal plan each semester. Increases to your meal plan, such as choosing a plan with more meals or Flex, may be made at any time during the semester.

Your Keene State College ID card must be presented at each meal in the Hoot-n-Scoot and the Night Owl Café, as well as for Flex and Keene Kash purchases at all campus dining locations. A valid ID card or hand read is required to gain admittance at the Dining Commons. Please remember, ID cards and meal plans are not transferable and meals can only be redeemed by the owner of the card.

The Dining Commons meal service begins with dinner on the day the Residence Halls open and ends with brunch on the day residence halls close. Brunch is served on all Saturdays, Sundays and days when there are no classes throughout the semester. All facilities that service the Meal Plan are closed during College recesses and vacation.
