It will take up to two business days to activate your meal plan. If you purchase it at least two business days prior to the start of school, you can begin using the meal plan on the first day of classes.
How do I purchase a Campus Meal Plan?
You have two options:
Option 1: If you want to use financial aid money: After you have received your award of financial aid, typically August 15 and January 2, go to any campus Bookstore cashier to request a Campus Meal Plan purchase. The Bookstore staff will provide the paperwork that needs to be completed and will notify you if you have sufficient funds to purchase the Campus Meal Plan.
Option 2: If you want to pay with cash or credit card: Go to any campus Cashier office, request to purchase a block of meals, complete the necessary paperwork and pay for your block of meals
How do I track my meals?
You may check your meal balance at any Stormer Pass station on campus. The number of remaining meals will also be printed on your Café receipt.
How much money is saved by purchasing the meal blocks?
One CMP meal costs about $6. If the same meal is purchased without the meal plan, it could cost more than $7. Students could save approximately 20% on the meals’ retail costs by purchasing two blocks of meals.
Campus Meal Plan: Redeeming Your Meals
Where can I redeem my meals?
You can redeem your meals at the Downtown Milwaukee Campus Café, and at Stormer cafés at the Mequon, Oak Creek and West Allis campuses.
The meal plan is not available at the 6th Street Café, 6th Street Bakery, Cuisine or the International Food area on the Downtown Milwaukee Campus.

You can redeem as many meals per day as you wish until your total number of meals is depleted.
Do my meals ever expire?
All unused meals expire on the last day of each semester.
How do I identify what is included in the meal plan?
Look for the Campus Meal Plan logo (shown here) to identify items that are available for purchase through the meal plan. No substitutions will be granted.
How will the meals be deducted from my Campus Meal Plan?
Present your Stormer Pass to the cashier prior to purchasing your meal. The cashier will enter your menu selection. Should you purchase additional food items or items not included in the meal plan at the same time you are redeeming your meal, you may pay for them with cash, credit card or Campus Cash.
