Room & Board Payments
All students who register for classes from early registration through the first week of the semester will be issued an email billing statement notification. This email will be sent to the student's UNK email account (LoperMail) at the beginning of the second week of the term. Paper billing statements will not be mailed. Students will access their billing statement on MyBLUE.  For more information on billing due dates, please check the Student Accounts page. For more information on meal plans, check out

Meal Plan Rates 2024-2025 (Per Semester Rates)

Students have busy schedules, so forget about meal prep and dishes. Choose from three flexible Meal Plans with a designated number of visits to the main dining centers, as well as dollars for campus restaurants and coffee shops, all within walking distance.

All you care to eat – Visit the dining halls as often as you want until meals are exhausted. If you want to enjoy the made-from-scratch cooking in the dining hall with the convenience of take-out, ask about the To Go program. 

Meal Plan Requirement
Please note: All students who live in the residence halls during the academic year (fall and spring semesters) are required to select a meal plan option. Board plans are optional during the summer term only. View more information on Meal Plans
