Dining Services | Website

Audience: GU Students

Freshmen and sophmores who live in residence halls are required to buy at least a 14 meal plan. Other students may select the plan of your choice through MyAccess. Upper class students will be allowed one day to cancel and receive a 100% refund on their Plan. Starting the second day, refunds will be granted on a pro-rated schedule based on the number of days a student was enrolled in the Plan. Changes to your board plan must be made within the first two weeks of the semester.

Mailing Addresses

Audience: GU Students

It is the responsibility of each student to confirm with MyAccess their academic and biographic data with the University Registrar. Local addresses will be used for regular student mailings. If no local or billing address is indicated in the student record, all materials will be sent to the permanent address.
