Plan Options

In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the 2020-2021 academic year. Meal Plan costs will be updated on the Maine Maritime Academy Tuition and Fees page.

Meal Plans (21, 17, 12 or 5) must be purchased or changed by the first Friday of each semester through the MMA Department of Student Life.   Current and incoming students can complete a change via the MMA Student Life Portal, on the Housing Application tab under "Meal Plan Change".   

NEW FOR SPRING 2021!   MMA has created new BLOCK plans for commuter students!   Click on the "Voluntary Block Plan" tab below to learn more.

Questions about Student Life Portal, Meal Plan Purchasing Issues  or Policies should be directed to Student Services by either e-mail or phone to Deidra Davis at deidra.davis@mma.edu or (207) 326-2137 

If you have overall questions about meal plans, balances and/or Mariner Money program, simply contacting Carly VanCamp at carly.vancamp@sodexo.com or (207) 326-2657.

Resident students are automatically enrolled in a 21-meal plan option if they are adding a meal plan. This meal plan allows for 21 meals per week in the Main Dining Hall located in the Student Center. Meal Plan holders may enter an unlimited number of times during continuous dining hours, with each entry utilizing a meal. Within the first week each semester, all students living on campus are given the opportunity to change to either the 17-meal or 12-meal plans. Resident students returning to campus are generally returned to the meal plan they had within the last semester they were on campus.  Flex dollars on plans as noted are per semester.   If you run low on Flex Dollars, you can always add Mariner Money to your account to continue to save tax and dine conveniently on campus.

Guests may also utilize their Meal Plans and Flex via the Bite-Universities App to pre-order their meals for pick-up.

All changes to meal plans must be approved by the Office of Residential Life. For all meal plans, students are required to present their ID cards for access. Unused meals at the end of the week are forfeited and cannot be transferred to other students or guests; nor can they be credited for future use. Meal plan weeks run Sunday through Saturday.

MORE INFORMATION AND HOW TO PURCHASE COMING SOON!

MMA has created new COMMUTER BLOCK plans for the Spring 2021 Semester.    These plans are available for students residing off campus only.   

Block plans work differently than traditional meal plans in that the student purchases a "block" of meals and flex, rather than "meals per week" as in the traditional plan.   These block plans are designed for those who are on campus less frequently, but still want the value and convenience of dining in our campus dining locations and/or ordering for pickup utilizing the Bite-Universities App.   In addition, you may purchase block plans anytime throughout the semester as well as purchase additional "reload" blocks throughout the semester as you need them.       

For all Meals and Flex, students are required to present their MMA ID card for access.    

These plans to do not roll over week to week nor semester to semester. 

10 MEAL BLOCK with $50 Flex
10 meals swipes and $50 in Flex to use on campus at The Main Dining Room or Waypoint

25 MEAL BLOCK with $100 Flex
25 meals swipes and $100 in Flex to use on campus at The Main Dining Room or Waypoint

Mariner Money may be purchased at any time throughout the year. Value can be loaded onto your MMA ID card at MMA's Campus Card Center and by credit card/cash/check at the Main Dining Hall or Waypoint registers during regular business hours.

Mariner Money can be utilized on campus at the Main Dining Room and Waypoint as well as for online printing and at the MMA Bookstore.

Guests may also utilize their Mariner Money via the Bite-Universities App to pre-order their meals for pick-up.

Looking to give Mariner Money as a gift to your student?   Visit MMA's Campus Card Center and choose the "Quick Add/Gift" section.    You will need your student's Last Name and ID Number to gift.
