Some CSU accommodation options include a meal plan, and most of them allow you to add a meal plan if you'd like. Check your campus accommodation page to see which plans apply to you.
You can also choose a meal plan in self-catered accommodation.
A meal plan gives you a number of Meal Credits and/or Flexi Points, depending on which plan you choose. You can spend these at your campus central dining outlet. You just swipe your CSU Card and you're good to go. You can top up Flexi Points at any time or upgrade your meal plan.
You can also upgrade your meal plan from the one that may be included in your accommodation package. You can do this when you accept your accommodation offer.
If you have special dietary needs, we're happy to provide menu options that work for you, including:
If you have other dietary needs, please specify these when you apply.
One Meal Credit will get you a combo meal at our central dining outlets, which includes a main meal and unlimited beverages and sides. It's great value, too - you could save up to $4 a meal by using your meal plan.
Your week's Meal Credits are added to your CSU Card each Monday before breakfast and expire on Sunday evening after dinner.
You can use Meal Credits up to four times a day and whenever your campus central dining outlet in Bathurst or Wagga Wagga is open.
Flexi Points are a way of loading cash onto your CSU Card. One point equals $1 and they can be spent in cent increments. So you can spend a little ('one Freddo Frog thanks') or a lot ('I'm planning a big study session so I'll have a pasta, an energy drink, two apples and some chocolate … and see you in the morning for coffee').
Flexi Points are valid at any Cheers food or retail outlet on campus, including mini marts, but can only be spent on food or non-alcoholic drinks. Half of your total points are loaded onto your CSU Card at the beginning of each session and all the points expire at the end of your stay.
When using your Flexi Points, keep in mind:
Meal Credits and Flexi Points are calculated on a daily basis and incorporated into the total accommodation charge for your preferred accommodation package.
