By now you’ve probably already purchased a semester dining plan. Your Flashcard is key for on campus dining and will get you food at any dining outlet on campus with your meal plan or FlashCash.

Meal Plan Tips:

1. Check your balance on a regular basis through My Account on Flashline.

2. Check the balance guides located in the dining halls to see what your balance should be each week.

3. If your balance is low, you can add money to your account at any point during the year.

4. If you have extra money at the end of spring semester, you can purchase foods in bulk at many of the markets on campus.

In order for the university to accommodate its large number of commuter students, dining plans cannot be used from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Hub in the Student Center. Flashcards can be used at any other time at all of these locations:

-Eastway Café and Deli

-Rosie’s Diner and Rations

-Prentice Café and Munchies

-Kent Markets I & II

-The Hub


-The Student Recreation and Wellness

Center’s Summit Street Café

-All Jazzman’s Locations

-Starbucks at the library coffee cart

The residence halls on campus offer several dining options that on-campus students may find convenient.

Tri-Towers houses Rosie’s Diner the only 24-hour dining and delivery location on campus. Rosie’s Rations market also has the largest selection of gluten-free and organic options at Kent.

Prentice Hall includes Burrito Del Ray — a made to order burrito, salad bowl and quesadilla location, and a variety of salad bar choices. Prentice also offers Veggie-A-GO-GO. Munchies market at Prentice offers Crustano’s deli sandwiches and several treats such as make-your-own milkshakes.

Kent State’s Student Center is the on-campus spot for non-residence hall eateries. The Hub includes Einstein Bros. Bagels, Subway, Jump Asian Express, Nathan’s and Arthur Treacher’s, Salad and Sushi and Ambrosia,– a smoothie and ice cream spot. The Rathskeller on the lower level offers Damon’s Bar and Grill and Jazzman’s Café – a popular campus coffee location. Kent Market I on the first floor offers made-to-order sandwiches, salads and wraps daily. The Kent Market II on the second floor offers Olives – a create-your-own pasta station – KM2 Grill and Tandoori Oven Indian cuisine. A fine dining experience can be found at the Schwebel Garden Room on the third floor.
