Edgewood Commons residents may sign up for meal plans, but because Edgewood Commons is the only residence hall which provided a full kitchen to residents, meal plans are not mandatory for Edgewood Commons Residents.
Edgewood Commons residents usually use one of three approaches for their meals:
- Purchase their own groceries (the shuttle stops at nearby grocery stores, so a car is not needed) and prepare food in their apartments’ kitchen. This is the most affordable option and keeps the overall cost of living on campus as low as possible.
- Purchase a “traveler’s” meal plan as well as some of their own groceries. Travelers’ plans are meal plans that are not open to residents of the other residence halls on campus, but are available to Edgewood Commons residents. They offer between 45 and 100 meals per semester, which is generally used for eating lunches in the dining hall between classes several days per week. This option provides a great combination of convenience and value.
- Purchase a full meal plan. This option provides the same meal options as in the traditional residence halls and is great for students who have both daytime and evening classes and want the convenience of eating in the dining halls for most of their meals.
Meals plans are mandatory for residents of every residence hall on campus except for Edgewood Commons. Meal Plans are coordinated through the FSU billing office. They can be reached at (301) 687-4321 if you have any questions about available plans.
