Better Deal for Commuter Meal Plans at UT

This petition had 77 supporters

As we all know, most of us UT students can't wait to live off campus after our freshman year if we haven't done so already. Living off campus is a great option, providing more personal space, amenities, and independence, although having to buy our own food and groceries can be a burden. This is why the UT commuter meal plan exists, so that students can continue to have access to the dining hall food if they would like to eat on campus from time to time. This meal plan provides two options - 25 meal swipes at J2 or Kinsolving for $225, and 50 meal swipes for $400, both with an additional $25 to spend at any other dining hall or market. However, this plan makes the meals eaten at these places more expensive than they would be with regular dine-in dollars, making them around 8-9 dollars each, while regular dine-in dollar meals at these dining halls would be only up to $5 dollars. I believe that as a student paying many off-campus expenses, the commuter meal plan should give more swipes for the amount paid, as it results in the meals being significantly more expensive, making $225 or $400 worth much less than it would with dine-in dollars.
