NMSU Campus Dining Meal Plan Information


NMSU campus residents may login to your MyHousing account to apply for a Meal Plan. However, if you already have a housing assignment, simply print and complete the linked form and deliver or mail it (along with the one-time $15.00 contract fee) to the ID Card Services Office on the 1st floor of Corbett Center Student Union across from Taos Restaurant.

Non-NMSU residents can apply for a Meal Plan online via the MyHousing system. Click here to create your account and then proceed directly to the Dining/Meal Plan portion. An offline option is available by printing and completing the linked form and delivering or mailing it (along with the one-time $15.00 contract fee) to the ID Card Services Office on the 1st floor of Corbett Center Student Union across from Taos Restaurant.

The plan that you have purchased determines the total number of dining hall entrances available to you each semester.

Checking Meals Available Balance
The cash register shows a balance of available meals each time you use your card. Don’t hesitate to ask a cashier for this information periodically. It’s always a good idea to keep track of how often you use your Dining Meal Plan.

Meals/Dollars Carry Over from Fall to Spring, but not Spring to Fall
While Meal Plans and Aggie Dining Dollars carry over from the Fall Semester to the subsequent Spring Semester, unused Meal Plans and Aggie Dining Dollars from the Spring Semester will not carry over into the next school year's Fall Semester. We think that eating nutritious meals on a regular basis is important to any college student's health and well-being. Because there is no carryover from one school year to the next, it is important to fully use your Meal Plan.

Sharing your Dining Meal Plan: Not an Option
Meals are not transferable. The Meal Plan you've purchased is for your use exclusively. You may purchase meals for guests who accompany you with your Aggie Dining Dollars, Aggie Ca$h or cash. Please do NOT loan your card to a friend to use. Improper use or abuse of the meal plan program may result in disciplinary action.

Other useful Information Etiquette

When visiting Taos or other campus restaurants and food vendors, we ask that appropriate behavior be demonstrated at all times. Respect for your fellow diners and the facility itself is paramount in maintaining a quality food service operation.
We greatly appreciate your assistance in:

  • bussing your own table
  • properly disposing of trash
  • cleaning up small spills
  • notifying food service personnel of larger spills
  • following the rules of the area

Using Taos Restaurant Facility

The Taos Restaurant is an all-you-can-eat facility. To help control food waste, we ask that only one entrée be taken at a time. You are welcome to return for seconds, thirds, or fourths, but please take only what you can eat and eat all that you take. Reducing food waste assists in controlling costs. If you experience a problem in the dining hall, please contact a member of the Dining Services staff immediately.

Customer Satisfaction

Your overall satisfaction is extremely important to us. Please participate in our Dining Customer Satisfaction Survey, which is administered once each semester. Don’t hesitate to approach a manager or contact us at the Dining Services Office in Room 130 of Corbett Center regarding any concern you might have. Remember, we offer a customer comment board outside of the Dining Services Office for your comments and suggestions, or you may wish to explore the opportunity of serving on the Food Service Advisory Committee!
