GradPlus - Graduate or Professional School Student Meal Plan

Any Harvard graduate or professional school students may elect to purchase a declining balance meal plan for use in designated Harvard University Dining Services Campus Cafes. Recognizing that food is a universal connector, the meal plan was established to foster and nourish your community experience. Nothing is as unifying as a shared meal!

The meal plan follows the academic calendar and consists of two allotments of declining balance dollars  ($400 for the fall 2022 semester, uploaded on August 29; and $500 for the spring 2023 semester, uploaded on January 2). In addition, you will receive a 10% discount for any purchase made with your meal plan.


  • The meal plan is only available to currently enrolled Harvard graduate or professional school students.
  • The meal plan follows the academic year calendar. Only the following Harvard University Dining Services’ campus café locations are eligible for meal plan use (note: inclement weather may impact location availability):

  • Declining balance dollars will be allocated at the beginning of each semester and will roll over from the fall semester to the spring, if enrolled. Unused declining balance dollars will be forfeited at the end of the academic year (last day of exams). There will be no meal plan refunds.
