Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to purchase a meal plan?
Yes! It's a great value and it is AAU's policy that all designated Campus Residents purchase a meal plan each semester.

What is Knight Kash?
Knight Kash is a stored value meal program, which can be used just like cash. It may be used at any campus dining location ( Café’s and Kiosks) and any participating Knight Kash merchant. Adding points to your account may be done at anytime. The Knight Kash program will enhance the student experience and broaden student access to local restaurants and merchants. Giving students the capability to use their Knight Kash debit account off campus provides added flexibility for their meal plan.

View the Knight Kash pages for more info.

Do Block Meals carry over from semester to semester?
Block meals may be used during the semester in which are purchased. They do not carry over from semester to semester.

Can I change my meal plan if it does not fit my needs?
Yes! Changing to a bigger or smaller meal plan can be done during the first two weeks of school by contacting the Housing Department. Changing to a larger plan is possible at any time during the semester. All other changes must be requested by the Director of Housing.

If I'm not a Resident Hall Student, where do I buy my meal plan?
