Meals for the week begin on Sunday and end on Saturday. Dining dollars are not carried from one semester to another and must be used by the end of the semester they are issued. Dining dollars may not be used for the purchase of gift cards. Meals are served to resident students upon presentation of a valid identification card.
The cost of meals is included in the College’s comprehensive fee for residential students.
All freshman students living in the residence halls will be opted into Meal Plan B. Should a freshman student wish to make a change to their meal plan, they may do so in the spring semester.

PantherGo is an opt-in program providing to-go containers for dining on the go. It works with all meal plans, but no meal plan is required. PantherGo is designed to help reduce waste and support Ferrum College’s efforts to provide a more sustainable and eco-friendly experience.
After purchasing the kit, dining services will be notified. Participants will then need to visit the dining services office (Monday – Friday from 9 AM – 2:30 PM) to receive their first to-go kit and a numbered hologram placed on their ID card.
Participants are only allowed to use the To-Go kit if they are taking food to go from the Franklin Dining Hall. All food must fit within the approved containers. No additional containers will be given.
Bring your rinsed containers to the Dining Hall the next you would like to get your meal to-go. Dining Services staff will exchange the container for one that has been washed and sanitized.
If you fail to follow the To-Go procedures and policies, Ferrum College and/or Aladdin reserves the right to revoke your participation. No refund will be given if participation is revoked.
