First-Year Meal Plans

First-year Blue Jays have the choice of five different plans. These plans were created to help ease the transition from home to the Hopkins Nest and to allow you to focus on the classroom and community building and not on washing dishes and cooking your own meals. First-year meal plans are created to work best at Fresh Food Cafe. Meal Plan prices below are for the 2017-2018 academic year and are subject to change upon approval of JHU Administration.
