Board/Meal Plans

Wartburg College Dining Service offers 20 standard meals per week in Mensa, the all-you-care-to eat dining facility. This includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, and brunch and dinner on Sunday. In addition to Mensa, there are three quick service eateries on campus: the Den-Rittersaal, Konditorei (also a coffee house), and Zesty Orange. Times of service vary by location and days of the week; there are numerous ways and flexible times for students to eat. This helps accommodate busy student schedules.

On-Campus Students. All on-campus students are required to have a board plan as part of room and board. The board plans are all the same price. The various board plan options offer different combinations of board plan meals, points (dollars to spend on food items at any of the dining locations), and bonus meals (extra meals to use in Mensa for self or others).

The board plans for the 2017-18 school year are currently set up as follows:

20 meals per week, $40 in points per semester, 8 bonus meals per semester
18 meals per week, $60 in points per semester, 7 bonus meals per semester
15 meals per week, $125 in points per semester, 6 bonus meals per semester
12 meals per week, $200 in points per semester, 6 bonus meals per semester

A different board plan is available to students living in Knights Village, which is apartment-style living. Knights Village units are available to more senior students, and access is based on academic standing.

Board plan weekly meals are tracked Sunday through Saturday and refresh each Sunday. For example, a person on a 15 meal plan, will start each Sunday with 15 meals. Meals are debited as they are used through the week, and on Saturday night, are refreshed to start with 15 on Sunday morning. 

Points and bonus meals are for the semester, and get debited as they are used-they do not refresh each Sunday. Unused points (dollars with the plan) roll to the following semester as long as the student has a board plan, through the end of May term.

In addition to eating in Mensa, students may use their board meals to get sack lunches from Mensa or meals (called meal transfers) in the Den and Konditorei, on weekdays. Up to 5 board plan meals may be used in a day.

Changing the Board Plan. If a student would like to change his/her board plan, the deadline is 4:30 pm, on the first add/drop deadline of the term. Board plan changes are made in the dining service central office (where ID pictures are taken). This allows students a little time at the start of the semester to see how their schedules work with the selected plan. During May term, there is one board plan-a 17 meal plan. Students may ask any dining cashier on campus, or stop in the dining central office, to check which plan they are on. In the event a student does not select a board plan, the system will default to an 18 meal plan.

Off-Campus Students. Board plans are available to off-campus students. They should stop in the dining service central office (where ID pictures are taken) for a list of plans and prices, and to sign up. The board plan cost can be added to the student’s College bill. Off-campus students could also add All Campus Spending (ACS) to their account and use that to purchase food.

All Campus Spending. Additional money in the form of All Campus Spending (ACS), can be added to any student account by coming to the Dining Service Office or the Business Office. Use of All Campus Spending includes an automatic 10% discount on food items or items purchased in the Wartburg Store (this includes textbooks). ACS may also be used in the Mail Center, but the 10% discount does not apply.

Other Meal Options

Sack Meals
There is no need to miss a meal. A sack meal is available for students who have a class conflict or work obligation during the meal period. Simply present your Wartburg ID between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. in the Mensa, Monday through Friday. A set-up will be provided to properly package and transport your meal. For weekend meals, prior arrangements must be made with the Dining Services Office.

Groups and organizations requesting sack meal exchanges must make arrangements with the Dining Services Office. Please see policy below.


*Dining Service Policy for Ordering Sack Meals and Take Out/ Picnic Meals*


Effective October 1, 2016, Dining Services changed our policy for Sack Meals and Picnic Meals.
The new requirement will be that that an order be requested before noon 4 full business days before the date and time of pick up. Saturdays and Sundays are not counted as business days due to the Dining Office not being open. There is a limit of 2 sack meals per day.

For Example:   An order that is going to be picked up on Friday at 3:00 pm must be turned in by 12:00 noon on Monday of that same week.
                           An order that is going to be picked up on Monday at 10:00 am must be turned in by 12:00 noon on Tuesday of the week before.
                           An order that is scheduled to be picked up on Saturday or Sunday at any time would need to be turned in before 12:00 Noon on                                    Tuesday of the same week.

If an order is placed after this time frame, Dining Services does reserve the right to refuse service and will not be responsible for making the meals in the request.

Please send all sack meal requests to courtney.wilson@wartburg.edu and/or shelly.geweke@wartburg.edu in the Dining Services Office.
